The full interview with Sir Richard Branson about alternative fuels and his efforts to reduce his carbon footprint has now been published over at Saab Great Britian’s BioPower website.
Some interesting tidbits:
Clearly there will also have to be a positive approach to the taxation of the fuel at home in the UK. The most local example I can think of is London where it is a nonsense that hybrid and electric cars pay no congestion charge and bioethanol cars do. I intend to write to the mayor about this shortly.
Just what Saab are after, I would say.
If the government is going to tax traditional fuel more it needs to provide big incentives to use greener fuels at the same time which can benefit people’s pockets as well as their conscience.
