I agree that ecologically intelligent business can out last competitors who are not, but your examples counter your point.
Hybrid vehicles do not have a higher margin, nor will they. The cost to manufacture them greatly outweighs the perceived benefits; and most importantly, the materials required to produce them are much more scarce than the oil used to produce gasoline. And these materials are definitely not renewable.
The material problem also applies to alternative energy. The solar panels and wind turbines require materials that are not available on a scale that would allow those sources of energy to ever meet our current needs, let alone future needs. Oil is abundant compared to what we need to make efficient solar panels and wind turbines.
These are things that the "tree huggers" have been fooled into becoming proponents of, even though the ecological damage that would result would be much worse than the pursuit of oil if we ever tried to scale those up to actually meet our energy needs.
The worse part of this is that reasonable alternatives like natural gas cars is taking a back seat to what the tree huggers imagine we should do. Granted, NG will run out someday too, but it would buy us a whole lot of time and decrease our dependance on foreign oil. The good news is that some ecologically intelligent companies aren't waiting for the political winds to change and are already using NG in their fleet cars.
