of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group of Companies and Chairman of The "Shell" Transport and Trading Company, plc. we have the story on solcomhouse

i wish people would stop ragging on gas-guzzling cars and keep ragging on cars in general. cars are our problem

1. they make road rage possible
2. they force people to rush around
3. they pollute
4. they make people stress about money
5. oil is the caue of war and destruction of lands
6. they require the paving of green lands
7. they require repair of asphault and high costs to tax payers, even those who do not impact or utilize the roads in the same way
8. they separate us from the environment
9. the kill

ride a bike instead. it's oh-so-much nicer.
