Our Current Question

Should cars be allowed to idle (to keep the car engine running while stopped) while waiting in a fast food drive thru? What about while waiting to pick someone up? Can you think of a way to encourage people to stop idling their cars?

I do think cars should stop Idling and waiting. They are polluting alot. We also should use less electricity, carpool, bike and walk to short-distance places.

A message from Ryan

Yes, yes, why bother? There are insufficient scientific studies to prove any climate change, and even less to prove that humans are the cause of it

No you should turn the car off while you are waiting for someone. Too much gas is filling the air. It is not good because that puts holes in the ozone layer. We will tell pepole to stop doing this now! We will tell pepole to stop doing this by telling them that they are hurting mother nature and the cute little animals of the world!

A message from Mary

In this day and age with modern cars idling is pointless. Instead of idling open your windows to get fresh air when it's hot and when it's cold put on extra warm clothes instead of using airconditioner in your car. In our state we had an Earth hour where everyone turned off their lights for one hour at the same time and we save millions of tonnes of greenhouse gases. Why not get on board and try it in your city. THE FUTURE IS IN OUR HANDS!!!!!
