Sorry guys I'm not having the car kills the planet. No one can prove it for sure and many can give a proper explanation as to what is really happening.

Meanwhile the governments continue to bleed us dry but spend virtually none of the revenue on what they say they will.

Electric cars are good for emissions and make the surrounding environment more pleasant for the nearby population.

But I am not convinced they will save the planet (irrespective of the CC arguement) as the pollutions just occur elsewhere instead at the power stations to generate the power and at the factories that produce the batteries.

Is Hydrogen the real answer? (No idea what process is needed to generate hydrogen and what pollutants are generated though?)

I suspect that the aeroplanes make a large impact on greenhouse gas emissions.

The RAV4 hybrid sounds an excellent car :s_thumbsup

Wait until you have run it in a bit, then press the sport button and floor it :shok:

Of course it goes without saying, stay within the law :s_thumbsup

I had a drive in a mates BMW M6 on Sunday.... One rapid motor. When the M button was pressed it reacted in a quite incredible way..

The Sport button on my car does very little. To be honest I never bother with it.. :s_thumbsup
