Are Hybrid Vehicles Really The Answer?

This article shows the utter lunacy of the anti-BIG OIL crowd.  As the article states, hybrid vehicles use these rare metals in the construction of their electrical motor / charging system.  Now there is already a shortage of these rare metals.  What will be the environmental impact of the search for these rare metals? Could it be strip mines?

How insane it is that we are pursuing a technology that is already showing shortages of raw materials, when we have TONS of oil, coal, and natural gas reserves that can be tapped with very little environmental impact.
