1.	My car emits very little greenhouse gas, so, I'm cool with that.  Sounds
	great to me. (I drive a Prius).

2.	Manufacturers are held liable for contributory negligence when the
	design of their vehicle is unsafe and causes an accident.

3.	We're not talking about greenhouse gasses here... We're talking
	about car-wrecks on the information superhighway caused by
	a combination of irresponsible operators and poor vehicle design.

as noted above, so, the relative merits are mostly irrelevant.
