If you drive your car then the hurricanes have won

Something you thought you’d never hear- George Bush telling Americans to drive less. Shame it’s only because Katrina and Rita have cut oil production and the Republicans still insist on pushing through tax breaks for oil companies.

“I mean, people just need to recognise that these storms have caused disruption and that if they’re able to maybe not drive … on a trip that’s not essential, that would be helpful.

“If it makes sense for the citizen out there to curtail non-essential travel, it darn sure makes sense for federal employees … We can encourage employees to car pool or use mass transit, and we can shift peak electricity use to off-peak hours. There’s ways for the federal government to lead when it comes to conservation,”
