Well, New-York City yellow cabs drivers won’t probably be nicer to you by tomorrow but at least they’ll get environment-friendlier 🙂

NYC TAXI

Michael Bloomberg, NYC Mayor, announced that by 2012 all New-York taxis would be hybrid-powered vehicles. A great idea, which, if realized, would make of New-York taxis the greenest fleet of taxis in the world.

Expectations over Co2 emissions reduction is interesting: switching the 13’000 currently licensed taxis should cut the emissions by 50%.

I appreciate this kind of public initiative, the authorities sure have to act as leaders in solving energetic and climate issues.

And you, is your city initiating similar green projects??
