carbon footprint involves both the co2 and co produced in the mfg of a fuel, in addition to what the fuel uses. For example, any waste burnoff at a refinery would be proportioned as part of the footprint along with the gases given off by the burning of a gallon of gas. Likewise, if coal was burned to generate electricity to run machinery, to do the refining, then the carbon gases released there get counted in as well.

Hey, thanks for adding me as a friend! My vanity plate reads KATIMA which was my belly dancing name many years and pounds ago when I was a lot younger. Not specific to the smart, just specific to me. Hope you don't have to wait too much longer, I only had to wait 6 months because I adopted an orphan. PS your bike is awesome!

Hey Tex
I got an email saying you sent a comment but could not find it or read it (????) anyway, hope you're well and behaving yourself. Things are pretty good with Tink but taking her in for a gas gauge problem and for them to check the AC...not cold enough for me but then again, I think my age and hormones are not helping. Give me strength. Hope you're well

Great idea about getting our vanity plates ahead of time! I'll check FLDMV and see if its doable. Our vanity for our 94 Mustang convertable GT is FSU PONY, and its been a lot of fun. Once the Smart arrives, the pony will be tenderly garaged and saved for "topless" weekend jaunts LOL!

I've had a vanity plate on several vehicles for years. I've never tried to transfer one, as they all were specific for the vehicle (94 white Bronco --- NOT OJ), (99 Mustang GT - 99 GT), (98 ZX2 -- ZX2) and now 96 Mustang -- 96 GT.. The smart would be ok for my F-150 until I get a real smart car. I'll check with my County Clerk about getting the tag and then transfering it.. Thanks for the idea.

Beautiful bike man. I have spent too many years in the ER to drive a motorcycle but I love the machine.
We must have ordered our cars about the same time. We will have to get together in Austin and get a Smart rally started when we get them!

Hey Tex!
Smartey's stall-mate in the garage is now our Low Rider, all black, too. :-) They are both FUN. Be sure to let us know when your smart arrives! ciao

I have been on the waiting list since Feb. 2008 and have not received any kind of information regarding where and when.

It would seem we will both be waiting for some time to come......but you have a Harley another of my great loves.

Hey Allen! How is your smart doing in the warmth of TX? I am good here in MI but those 90+ days have been few this summer. We have had a coolish year so far. I drove to Cleveland on the Ohio TPK over the weekend and all went really well. I still love it so much. It reall is the most fun I have ever had driving. What's going on in your world? Talk to you soon. Barb .

Hi TX,

Thanks for the friends invite, sorry it took me so long to respond. I was on vacation and now I'm now getting caught up on things. Check out my "toys" on my member page, just got the photos on there this morning. I also got home to find a message from my Smart dealer that my car has been shipped from Europe so I'm on the last leg of the long wait.

Best regards!

Enjoy.........I've had mine since May. I love it. It's so much fun. I have a Mercesdes SUV and this looks like a mini-me next to it. EVERYBODY stops to ask me about it. Anne

I believe the term can best be understood in its use in architecture - the footprint is how much space the house occupies one dimensionally as it is placed on a lot. A big footprint especially refers to house that occupies most of the lot.
A carbon footprint is a real, meaningful term, and it can be large or small. One of the ways it is also used is to calculate how many acres of land it would take to sustain a lifestyle/energy use pattern. So an average US household might have a carbon footprint of 50 acres or more, meanwhile they live on a 1/10 of an acre lot.
The calculation is made including consumption of things (food, cars, toys) as well as energy used, plane travel, a vegie diet has a lower energy cost than a "normal" diet, etc.
So people who are concerned about the climate crisis want to have a smaller footprint, but exactly how small is up to debate.
That's a starter, hope it helps with your question. It isn't just political, but it seems imperative to have politicians in office who are not into denying the science, and who are also not in the pockets of the oil industry - a situation we currently have.

I can happily report that I am pleased with the A/C. It gets cold relatively quick. The fan blows powerfully, though a little loud on the highest settings. But I could recommend the a/c now...

Good luck with your wait! We almost settled for taking someone's "orphan" but realized we wanted all our own picky details! The wait was well worth it!

Hi TX. Sorry, don't believe we've met. Nice bike you have there. (Admit it... it'll be a tough choice when you walk into the garage...bike or fortwo, bike or fortwo...lol. Well I guess the fortwo would win in TX simply because of the AC.) Anyway, good luck to you with your fortwo delivery.
