Yahoo donated 10 hybrid Ford Escapes for the city’s effort to make the yellow cabs hybrid within 5 years. It's a great idea and a great way to promote yahoo!

What's your view?

NYC’s yellow cabs to go hybrid within 5 years (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18800305/) - Every yellow cab in this city will be a fuel-efficient hybrid by 2012, and stricter emissions and gas mileage standards for taxis will be phased in starting next year, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Tuesday.

There are now 375 hybrid vehicles among the 13,000 taxis rolling on New York City streets. Under Bloomberg’s plan, that number will increase to 1,000 by October 2008 and will grow by about 20 percent each year until 2012.
