Former Shell Chairman wants to ban gas guzzlers

Former Shell Chairman wants to ban gas guzzlersSir Mark Moody-Smith, former Shell chairman, wants the EU to ban inefficient and gas guzzling luxury cars. What’s so special about this is not that he is a former Shell chairman but that he defends his viewpoint in a most refreshing and social way:

It is a social thing. We don't say the wealthy can avoid doing what is needed by society.

When we eliminated coal fires in London we didn't say to people in Chelsea you can pay a bit more and toast your crumpets in front of an open fire - we said nobody, but nobody, could have an open fire.

BBC has the whole story. Greenpeace UK have also covered the statement.
