Amazingly, Toyota agrees with some of this article's main points

In recent testimony before the U.S. Congress, Toyota said, in effect, that car technology (e.g. hybrid cars) alone is not the answer, we should use more mass transit, and we should do better land-use planning.
Toyota is the second-largest car company and the largest hybrid maker in the world, but could they be developing something like a "deep green" mentality?

References: James E. Press, President of Toyota Motor North America, Inc. Congressional testimony, March 14, 2007 [PDF], page 4:

"In addition to vehicle technology improvements… smarter land use planning, increased reliance on mass transit and greater use of so-called 'intelligent transportation systems' can all reduce traffic congestion and energy consumption."
