Default Hummer Greener Than Prius?

http://slashdot.org just posted a link to an article entitled "Hummer Greener Than Prius?" The link is:

http://clubs.ccsu.edu/recorder/editoria ... NewsID=188

One excerpt is:
"the Prius is partly driven by a battery which contains nickel. The nickel is mined and smelted at a plant in Sudbury, Ontario. This plant has caused so much environmental damage to the surrounding environment that NASA has used the ‘dead zone’ around the plant to test moon rovers. The area around the plant is devoid of any life for miles."

Is this a rehash of a posting about 6 months ago? I think someone said that the Prius batteries are made in Japan but I have no idea where they get their nickel.

Oops, just noticed that someone started an almost identical thread in the General forum. I suggest that we follow that post since it's already on it's way.
