OK, I've finished my yoga session, there's a whale pod on my I-pod and the valium's kicking in nicely. I think I may be ready to have another look at the Motor Show Survival Guide's take on 'Going Green'.

So, where were we? Ah yes...

Firstly, I'd like to respond to some of my critics. I really wanted to respond to John, who posted a comment on Day Two claiming that 'the total amount of contibution of greehouse gas emisions for the entire transport sector is about 2%', but some chap called Vincent got there before me.

Welcome to my weekend. Today is the start of my SUV (stupid ugly vehicle) rant. I'm afraid it may spill over into next week, but what with this weather I've built up quite alot of steam that needs letting off. Next time I find myself blogging in a good mood, we'll have a look at the positive technical developments in low emissions technology, but not today. Today we're documenting the deal we're getting in exchange for our future, and it's a shitty deal. Next time you laugh at the Manahata indians for selling their island for $24 dollars, remember that we're busy swapping the most beautiful planet in the known universe for some of the stupidest, ugliest bits of bad design the industrial era has seen.

Of the more than 5000 people randomly polled throughout London, 85 percent agreed that the Congest Charge should be higher for gas-guzzlers.
