Comments on: The greenest car? http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/01/05/the-greenest-car/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Geoff Thomas http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/01/05/the-greenest-car/comment-page-1/#comment-337446 Wed, 07 Jan 2009 08:12:03 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=11665#comment-337446 I was much pleased to see the posting about Wilkie Collings and his car. It’s green credentials were well established many years ago when Mr Collings and the car were based near Bath. The car was then used as everyday transport and I well remember the smell of old sprouts when being overtaken on the A4. This was, I believe, because the petrol was mixed with a vegetable oil additive. Others thought it could be to do with Wilkie’s old socks. Either way, a smaller carbon footprint was presented in comparison with the modern counterparts.
My wife and I will try a night or two at Nash Hall and see if we, too, can get a lift into town with the hundred year old marvel. (the car).
G.T.

Its unfortunate that the realizations will come about once there is no chance left for change. Watch who killed the electric car just to see what change could have taken place if the automotive industry people weren’t as greedy as they have become!
