Hasta La Vista Saudi: Arnold Gets a Hydro Hummer

Governor Arnold received a hydrogen-powered Hummer H3 from GM, to promote hydrogen fuel for cars and stimulate interest in building filling stations for the gas in the State of Californ-i-a. Treehugger isn't impressed, considering the H3 is still hugely wasteful just by nature of its size. And, proliferation of the hydro-Hummer may be hamstrung by the recent change in the Federal tax law ending small businesses' six-figure write-offs of heavy truck purchases in 2005. Still, for cigar-chomping, range roving, insatiable millionaire environmentalists, it's a great day.
