5. OK - I understand...

From the article - average went from 28.9 miles driven by gas cars to 30 miles driven with EV's - less than 4% more.

I've heard the rationale against efficiency because it encourages more use and in that way moving backward. I just think that attitude is unproductive. We should always move towards efficiency even if people use it more. What would you rather have - a handful of people changing their lifestyle (work closer to home, walk more, use public transit more, etc) or 100's or 1000's driving more efficient cars?
