Some good points, but some weird numbers.

"clogged metropolitan areas wasted 3.7 billion hours and 2.3 billion gallons of gasoline--about $63 billion worth--stuck in traffic."

I hope that $63 billion is including wasted time, otherwise the amount you are talking about equals $27 per gallon.

I'm not sure of von hoffman's drift. Has Al Gore actually been taking the bus? I seem to recall that he failed even to mention global warming during the entire 2000 presidential contest. And why give him even a share of the credit that duly belongs to Ken Livingstone?
