Graphic Friday: Suck It Up Yourself
Introducing the Monoxitube
“Introduce yourself to the colorless, odorless poison streaming out of your tailpipe. Face your exhaust.” Via Carbusters.
EDITOR’S EXTRA: I’m completely aware of my hypocrisy; I’m likely using a car at this very moment. I might even be driving through your neighborhood. In my defense, I take my actions very seriously and because I do I’m modifying my driving behavior.
Some actions I’m taking: I limit the time I’m in stop and go traffic, quick accelerations (the jack-rabbit starts), idling (longer then 10 seconds, shut it down) and driving faster than context suggests (calculate damage units, not MPH). I even considered exhaust when I bought my car, and I’m thinking about how I can retrofit the exhaust pipe
Most of all, I’m driving less and less. What are you doing?
