Greenpeace response

In response to the goverment announcing a £500 million funding package to
support Ultra Low Emission Vehicles, Dr Doug Parr, Chief Scientist at
Greenpeace UK, said :


"As the first oil
arrives from the fragile Arctic, there has never been a better time to push our
vehicles towards going low carbon. Not only does this investment boost
Britain’s clean tech sector and maintain our leading position in an expanding
global market, but in the long run it will help us stop poisoning our cities
and trashing the environment for oil."
