Given the way my woman purred this morning, must be a third category. Those who reject the leftist Malthusian environmental orthodoxy and seek to live the best life possible through technology and, yes, high energy consumption. If I need to haul rocks, I can do it. If I need to give 5 people a ride, and all their gear, that too. Try that with your Smart car!. Heck, I could put one of those in my truck's bed.

"I will build a car for the great multitude. It will be large enough for the family, but small enough for the individual to run and care for. It will be constructed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise. But it will be so low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one — and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God's great open spaces." -- Henry Ford.

These words might have been written into the Constitution. Good luck to you nihilists who are trying to suplant them.
