Is that supposed to make the Proletariat feel better then !

I think Tony Blair uses that excuse when he jets all over the place. Somewhere in England should be covered in new trees by now then. Don't think its Hampshire though.

According to some sources, throughout the current governments reign there has been a massive increase in the number of CO2 recycling engines planted by entrepreneurs and small businesses.

I myself have considered planting crops of a renewable nature to help the environment and give me a generally better more relaxed feeling about life.

However, Mrs Nasher complained when I lined the spare room with Tin foil, wired up enough lights to rival the Ferry port, and started importing seed from Holland.

When you buy a new freelander, there is an extra 'on the road cost' which is co2 offset (£85 + vat).

The charge is worked out for the first 3 years of the vehicals life, 15000 miles per year ( which is the service intervals). After 3 years it's down to you if you want to renew it.

Given the stick that the likes of Green Piss like to give us, its good to see a manufacturer doing something proactive

More details can be found on the LR website

If 'Climate care' can do that for 85 quid for a Land Rover for 3 years how come the Government wants to charge so much more. They are looking at £200 per year for a 4 x 4. Somethings way out on the figures for one side.

Greenpeace bought a rib off me last year. Two guys came all the way from Germany to collect it, and then tow it back. I was quite amused when they turned up in a nearly new hi spec Grand Cherokee
