Where is the break even point?  If I install a wood burning boiler to heat my home do the emissions from my boiler exceed the amount of pollution it takes to produce the electricity to run a heat pump?  I don't have the answers but being in the automotive business I can tell you cars are cleaner than they ever have been.  Diesel trucks are now having the noose tightened around their necks.  If you are a thriving economy there is no other ways to compete in the global market besides growth. 

Remember the early industrial age, nasty, dirty no standards for waste from factories.  We have evolved since then, let's not kid ourselves into thinking we are as dirty as we were.  We will eventyally reach a point where we won't be competitive because it is costing us too much to be clean.  So are we at or near this point yet?  It is about economics and environment at the same time, China and India don't care if it causes a factory more money to produce the same good, heck most of the stuff we buy is made in another country.  And why you ask?  Cheaper, less restrictions, cheaper, less red tape, cheaper.  In any way you look at it we, by buying form countries that have little or no controls on dumping or emissins, are contributing to what we are trying to reduce-kinda bass ackwards  ??? ::) :o
