Sussex Wildlife Trust's Tony Whitbread’s words are timely: “We need a sophisticated approach to traffic”, Argus Soapbox, August 9 and 13) – building roads and bypasses are not the answer to our traffic woes. How many butterflies did you see in this warm summer?

By heeding research of transport specialists, such as Professors Goodwin and Whitelegg, and various environmentalists and visionaries, we could have sustainable solutions and put 'eco' back into the economy.

Fewer cars, less consumption and climate change, would mean more care, conservation and contribution to a fairer, healthier world.

Morpheus says...

Haven't you realised that the reason for the consumption is jobs? The reason for built in obsolesce is jobs. What are we all going to live on in your dream eco world? The last time we had an eco economy we were hunter gathers. I doubt you will find anybody willing to go back to that existence.
