With high regard for the work of SHELTER, I offer a challenge to Sam Bell Steves II, as excerpted below, and specifically his comment relevant to the [Toyota] Prius. [“Further, environmentally friendly cars, like the Prius, consume more energy to produce than the energy saved through their operations …”] (see article on page 30 of SHELTER’ S July-August 2008 issue) The comment is too capricious even for an “editorial insertion.” Furthermore, it serves no constructive purpose.

set forth a clear, logical and honest presentation
that demonstrates his previously published
