Today is the first of the UK "Fuck the environment, I want to use my car" days. I hate cars. I would place money on these drivers not using a hybrid engine car if they had the chance. I hate the excuses that the car drivers make: "I have to commute 100 miles and there's no public transport" Ever heard of homeworking or teleworking? "I have to use a car to get the shopping" Ever heard of home delivery?
Unfortunately, the last time I voiced these opinions with my colleagues, I was shot down in flames. People actually laughed when someone seriously said that they didn't give a shit about the future world. I think that I've given up hope for the world in 100 years' time. I suppose it's my own selfish mind; I don't want to try and answer a child's question when I'm old "Why did your generation destroy the planet, grandad?"
Of course, these are emotive arguments - hardly rational or compelling. Therefore, I say to the UK (and other) car drivers - please take the time to work out how much money you would save on petrol if you used a hybrid engine. Just 5 minutes of your time. Perhaps these links would help you:
