Food Trucks: A Micro Intervention Counter Argument?

Treehugger.com asks an interesting question: yeah food trucks are great and all, but what do they do for the environment? More throw-away packaging and an idling engine potentially compromise the social and urban opportunities created with these meals on wheels. There is an old argument that it is unfair to the brick and mortar folks who pay taxes and jump through hoops to help their business and city function. The counter to all of this of course is that a "rising tide raises all ships" where we can look at the prestige that can be associated with a city known for its food trucks as a net gain.
