To save the planet from Global Climate Change it is recognized we need to reduce emissions by 80% per cent this means reducing consumerism by 80%. Public transport has to become the norm in our lives reducing fuel use and vehicle production. For car production itself is a GHG disaster as well as the fuel used to run each car over it's lifetime.

During the recent slump the production of vehicles fell by around half. Then the automobile industry was artificially revived to bring back production when a better idea would have been to switch from cars & trucks to public transport vehicles., trains in particular. Stupidly the Obama administration has tried to return to business as usual instead of seeing the recession as a chance to move to the New Economy (www.davidkorten.org/NewEconomyBook)(www.charlielennoxsos.com) and Change We Can Believe In.
