Default Can we get a Forum for the environment?

Seems like a valid sub-topic for most hybrid owners.

Thanks In Advance, Ian

Second that, I'd like to see one too.

I'm not sure this makes sense. We have a fairly narrow focus, hybrid-electrics, and there are many other web site that focus on the environment and to a greater or lessor extent, also cover not only hybrids but all other modes of transportation.

If there is something specific about hybrid impacts on the environment, I could change my mind but right now, I'm not aware of anything unique to our hybrids that isn't already shared by existing gas, flex and electric vehicles. The hybrid-environmental association seems a little weak . . . but I could be pursaded otherwise.

I guess each of us had different reasons for buying a hybrid...some liked the technology, some wanted to experience the gas savings, and some wanted to do something to benefit the environment.

I would be interested in an environmental section on the forum, although if it doesn't happen, there are plenty of other places where I can find such an outlet.

I'd be interested, too. We have a fuel efficiency section, and not everyone bought a hybrid to get the best mileage. Well, most of us did (grin!) and it's certainly connected, but there are certainly some people who come here and have slightly different expectations. I just think the quality of the discourse would be high and the discussions would be worth reading, so I would like having an environmental section.

Many hybrid owners care about and may want to discuss the environment.

Also, this is "green" hybrid. I don't think it implies young.

There's your link.

P.S. I added a poll to gauge what the users might like. Power to the people!

I don't feel strongly one way or the other. If the environmental discussion has a technical link to hybrid electrics, such as co-generation, I'm inclined towards it. However, if it becomes another "Anything goes," well I'll probably expend as much time as I do today on the "Tax" forum.

Well that's too bad. You don't have to be a greenie to have an opinion about the enviro, though...

Typically what we do is wait until there are a lot of topics that fit one specific category, and then make a forum for it. Until then, these best belong in the General forum. When there are several active topics at once about the environment, for instance, then let me know.
