Honda Racing F1 Wins Something!
« on: October 29, 2007, 06:25:02 PM »

Honda has won the Grand Prix at the second Green Awards, which reward business for communicating sustainability in a creative and original way, for the launch of its Honda Racing Formula 1 team's environmental initiative.

The campaign featured an image of the earth on the racing team's cars rather than the usual sponsor logos.  :lazy:

And let's not forget that Honda also did their bit to reduce carbon emissions during the season by virtue of several DNF's......

Well done Honda. The marketers are champions - though with the sort of ads they've been putting in the F1 ad breaks during the last few years, I'd already taken that as a given.

True. Ironically, they also burned a lot of engines when they retired from races.

I have only one question, if there is NO global warming, then, why are average temperatures only creeping higher??......

Just a thought.

Lack of air pollution.  50 years ago the world used coal fires.  There was so many particulates in the air they blocked part of the sun's energy.  Think about all the smog there used to be in the major cities.  Clean fuel, clean air, more energy from the sun getting through and heating the world up.

I am sure you guys are probably right.... but, come live in my city for a couple of years and then see what you think about cooling....... I can't pretend to care fully about the whole global warming thing...... i admit to being fairly ignorant to the situation....

Thanks for the effort in showing me your point of view...

Take it easy guys

Eight of the ten warmest years in recorded world history have been in the last decade, They have all been since 1960. The reason there are iceburgs off of South Africa is that the Antarctic ice sheets are breaking up and floating away.

Most of the world's biggest polluters, like China, still use huge amounts of coal. And the reason that the UK is getting colder is that the Gulf Stream, which carries warmth to Europe, is breaking down.

Alarmist tosh, I'm afraid, Cozzie.  The Antartctic has been getting cooler for several decades now and the ice sheet is not melting.  Have no idea where you got that one from - must be the latest warmie scare story.  Global temperature fluctuates all the time and, if anything, it is going down at the moment, especially in the southern hemisphere.  It would take hundreds of years for the Gulf Stream to be affected by any change in global temperature, if at all - it would have to be a huge change as well, otherwise it would have switched on and off several hundred times in the last millennium.  If all the ice in the Arctic melted tomorrow, the rise in sea levels would be barely noticeable - almost all the ice is floating on the ocean and already taking up its given mass therefore.  Only the ice on Greenland would make any difference at all and that, not much.

A few minutes logical thought can blow apart 90% of the warmies' lies - for pete's sake, folks, wake up - it's a political scam, that's all.

Opinions are fluctuating too, but the southern hemisphere (more specifically Australia) has recorded it's hotest years in the past decade....... sorry but it is a matter of record that the heat is ON here..... that is an irrefutable FACT regardless of which side of the fence you are on with the whole global warming/cooling.....

I'm not going to get into 'is the world getting colder or warmer debate' but one thing is for sure, the worlds climate is changing, and it always has done since the beginning of time.

The fact remains that everyone seems obsessed with trying to reduce their carbon footprint. The total carbon footprint for the human race is only 0.2% of the total carbon produced by the planet, the rest is produced naturally by the sea and trees etc.

So if every person, factory and car stopped producing carbon tomorrow we would have a 0.2% positive effect on the environment, or in other words - no affect at all!

The governments of this world are certainly cashing in on the idea of us all having to save the planet for our children's future. Unfortunately it doesn't matter what we do, none of us can stop the world as it evolves.
