C02 Emissions

If you care about the environment then you’d best look away now because this survey conducted by Carbuzz.co.uk is about to really piss you off. Everyone out there likes to think that they’re environmentally conscious when it comes to automobiles and emissions, but very few people actually do anything about it. In fact according to this study of 1,982 motorists over in the UK, only 1% of drivers actually give a crap about how much C02 they’re spewing into the atmosphere. It’s not a surprise really as most people look to get the best bang for their buck when it comes to automobiles and that usually means sacrificing on things like emissions and safety. The plain truth, whether in the United States or the UK, is that people want a nice cheap car that’s loaded to the hilt with options, it’s just the way it is. Still, the fact that safety and emissions are so far down on the list is quite surprising.

    CO2 emissions is the single thing I could care less about on a car. I don’t care if my car puts out more CO2 than a C-5 Galaxy. It really doesn’t matter to me. MPG, yes. CO2? Nope. Not one bit.

    Man, it will be nice when this Green Weenie train runs out of steam.

    The simple fact of the matter is, regardless of what we do or don’t do, when Mother Earth has had enough of us we will be done. No questions asked and nothing can be done about it. Worse things than Homosapiens have hit this planet before we were here and will continue long after we are gone. Through it all She will be spinning merrily along the way.

    That’s my rant for the week.

    Sounds like this poll was paid for by BP (British Petroleum). You know, the corporation that destroyed our Southeast shores?
