Today’s Advice: Drive smoothly.

PCH_Near_Laguna_Beach

” Today the world burns as much oil in 6 weeks as it did over the course of a year in 1950. Oil reserves are running out and, at current rates of consumption, will be exhausted in less than 50 years. Transportation alone accounts for half the world’s oil consumption.

You can help to preserve the planet’s reserves. In cities, take care to avoid accelerating and braking too hard and too frequently. This manner of aggressive driving increases fuel consumption by 40%, which means spending money needlessly and aggravating urban air pollution. “

-Abrams, “365 Ways To Save The Earth”, 2008
