More Green Waste

Your Local Guardian

One thing green loons know how to do really, really well is waste taxpayer or ratepayer money:

An electric car charging point that cost £6,018 to install has been used for just five hours since it was first installed in 2009.

The charging point in Putney Leisure Centre car park, Dryburgh Road, Putney, was created to allow drivers to use more environmentally friendly electric cars.

In Mapleton Road, Wandsworth, a charging point installed in 2008 has racked up 74 hours, 54 minutes since it was installed at a cost of £5,500.

There are a total of five electric car charging points in the borough, with others in Spencer Park, Wandsworth Common, St John’s Avenue in Putney and Coverton Road, Tooting, which were  installed in June this year.

    In Adelaide there is a ship that runs across the Spencer Gulf on a daily run and picks up sand.

    This is fuelled by LPG!!!

    Har ha de hah! Reminds me of Clarkson and May taking the electric cars for a spin and having them charged by a long lead from a boat in a marina! Hilarious.

    The Olympics was proud to be planning on using a fleet of LPG taxis, as I read.
    Until.

    There was some unbelievably odd story about the gas taxis having to be trucked many miles to refill. The LPG station nearest the Olympics had been removed as it was a security risk.

      Hydrogen, not LPG… Issue is there is only 1 hydrogen fueling point in all of London as it is a very hazardous material to have floating around populated areas.
