What is the carbon cost of the vehicle? The metal for the batteries is probably mined in South America where they had to deforest to set up the open cast mining operation. The ore is then shipped half way round the world to china for processing into batteries before being shipped the other half way round the world to the UK where they are charged on electricity from a coal power station and then only last for 3 years before having to be replaced!
Current generation electric cars suck. They are in no-way environmentally friendly.
Try to take public transport for one journey a week. Try to walk or use a bike for short journeys you might otherwise use your car. Service your car regularly. Check the tire pressures every time you fill up with fuel. Shop for groceries on line once a month. MUCH better for the environment ideas than getting an electric car.
What a waste of money!!
Everyone including the UK MOD have admitted these planes are not fit for purpose so WHY are we buying any?
Supposedly stealth capable they have been shown they can be picked up on radar in all profiles by systems only slightly more advanced than your average speed camera!
That's me gone
And that is why I've just left Virgin after 4 years. Transfer rates were a joke anyhow and throttling extended into "free" periods. £35 (£29 with 6 month tie in) a month was a joke. If they wanted to improve their service and their revenue they should tackle their systemic problem of cloned modems and hacked set-top-boxes.
I'm back over to ADSL
£9.99 phone line rental including unlimited evening and weekend calls
£17.50 24Mbit ADSL2+ with be* (live next to the exchange)
Tax right off
Are payments tax deductible? Pay $20M to the government or to a mate via a lawsuit?
Marble Madness owned by Midway Games
Not that it really matters but this Atari is what is left of Atari Corp.
Atari Games (who owned Marble Madness) ended up with Midway Games. And so Midway own the rights to Marble Madness ;-)
Has babelfish every been able to translate hebrew?
It's certainly not an option now, was it removed, or is this story just "made up"?
