To be honest, I don't give a toss about emission results.

All of this eco-warrior nonsense makes absolutely no difference to the planet as a whole. Why don't they have a mass rally in China?

Quite agree, whenever China is shown in relation to anything about emissions there are chimneys belching out smoke!

Another area that is seldom mentioned with anything about emissions and impacts on the environment is that of aircraft. These are flying above us all the time chucking out far more than our cars and home environments.

Me neither. They need to stop planes dumping fuel first.

Apparently, these refrigerated lorries are very polluting, at least the fridge units are, and there’s thousands of them on the road in this country alone,

You want to talk pollution then take a look at shipping and cruise liners

Re: The cost of new technology in modern cars

A huge new cruise ship terminal planned for the river Thames would lead to a surge in dangerous levels of air pollution in the heart of the capital with unknown health consequences for hundreds of thousands of people, campaigners have warned.

Under the proposals, which have been given planning permission, up to 55 giant cruise ships would dock in London every year. Each ship would need to run its diesel engines round the clock to power onboard facilities, generating the same amount of toxic NO2 emissions as almost 700 continuously running lorries.

“As we find out more about the damage air pollution is doing to people’s health it is unthinkable that something like this can go ahead,” said local resident Laura Eyres, who is one of those leading the fight against the development.

“There is simply no justification for having these huge ships sitting here right next to busy residential areas and schools, belching out this level of pollution with all the associated damage to people’s health that have now been proven.”
