Did you catch the story last week that some of the nation's top religious leaders met with high-ranking executives from the auto industry, including Ford Motor Co. Chairman William Clay Ford Jr., to discuss their push for fuel economy?

Camels were the SUVs of Biblical times -- big, ugly, eating too much, and fouling the streets of Jerusalem with too much "exhaust" pollution.

"I think the faith organizations are trying to put the fear of God in the auto companies, and I wish them well," said Dan Becker, director of the Sierra Club's global warming and energy programs.
