Announcement :: Environment
Stop Your Engines! (and leave em a home!)
31 Jul 2007
Also if gasoline prices are lower,then this will have an effect on lowering prices across the board on a lot of consumer goods and services because the transportation costs re gasoline,are lower as a result.
Proposal - To select one day (as a start) in each month as a day of rest for your automobile,and so also relief from its negative effects on our environment.
**Leaving your automobile at home,just one day in a month is enough amazingly,in North America,to save hundreds of millions of gallons of gasoline from being used and this will have a number of positive effects,from dropping gas prices owing to having created a surplus.

Also if gasoline prices are lower,then this will have an effect on lowering prices across the board on a lot of consumer goods and services because the transportation costs re gasoline,are lower as a result. The air quality in major urban centers will be much improved on this Stop-Your-Engines-Day plus these cities will have a surreal look and feel because it will be so strange (and beautiful) to walk around the streets that have no frantic,noisy traffic jams on them.




I think the last thursday in each month would be a very good day to "Stop-Your-Engines" and leave your polluting,gas guzzling car,van or truck at home. The reason because the last thursday in each month is a better or at least a less painful day to leave your auto at home (compared to say the last friday) because people get off work on that day for the weekend and they usually have a lot planned from shopping to clubbing to going on trips.Thursday would be a good day for a "trial run" on reclaiming our environment from the ravages of the gasoline powered automobile including noise,traffic jams,asphalt infestation and the unsustainable (but preventable) pollution and poisioning of our breathable atmosphere.
