    Default save rome campigin

    Save
    Rome

    The leading cause for ancient roman buildings to fall apart is pollution. Ride a bike or bus instead of a car. Or write your congressperson asking him to send money to Rome to save buildings. Or donate money to Rome. Remember if history don’t live in our present it has no future.

    Nobody is going to stop making cars because a few people say so... the automotive industry is a billion dollar industry, you think they will just glady stop raking in the cash because we want them to stop? People have been complaining about cars for decades now... instead of wasting time complainging about something we cannot stop, why not put money into the restoration of the already damaged monuments since cars will never stop being a problem...

    Well, the city council of Rome has already done a lot to reduce traffic in the centro historico, but in my opinion it's not much of a success. More like a complete failure, I'd say. The traffic is constant all the time, except sundays and before 5 AM. You can see this blackish layer upon some of the historical buildings as well as apartment blocks, that's the cars.

    The situation is quite hopeless. People have to get to work, and as most people work in the centre of town, this is where the traffic is concentrated, which also happens to be where most of the historical structures are located. Yes, there's public transport, but the subway is so terrible I was warned against using it, and the busses are crammed as full as possible within the laws of physics (as well as being notorious for skilled pocket thieves dressed as bussinessmen and tourists). Would you ride this? I think not.

    Do not worry. President takes already care!

    HEADLINE: Bush boosts clean diesel
    by Terrence Nguyen, web editor

    President George W. Bush yesterday gave a speech backing the efforts of the biodiesel industry and attended an ‘07-compliant diesel engine demonstration at Virginia BioDiesel refinery at West Point, VA. The demo used a Peterbilt Model 387 equipped with a Cat C13 Acert engine.
    “Our clean diesel rules will reduce air pollution from diesel engines by about 90%, and reduce sulfur content of diesel fuel by more than 95%,” said the President. “Today I saw a diesel-powered truck that can get up to 30% better fuel economy than gasoline-powered vehicles, without the harmful emissions of past diesels. I mean, the fellow got in the truck and cranked it up, and another man got on the ladder, and he put the white handkerchief by the emissions port, and the white handkerchief remained white.
    Because of the improved fuel economy diesel offers, Bush added that he would like to see more consumer acceptance of diesel engines in passenger cars, pickups and SUVs. “To help more Americans benefit from a new generation of diesel technology, I have proposed making owners of clean diesel eligible for the same tax credit as owners of hybrid vehicles [of up to $4,000],” Bush continued.
    Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum, said that the speech will go a long way toward improving public perception of diesel technology, as well as the trucking industry.
    “First of all you see a high level of recognition on the progress of diesel and the fact that it is a clean technology,” Schaeffer told Fleet Owner. “For example, with the handkerchief test [the president] has seen first hand that today’s diesel technology is far more advanced…That recognition is important because there has been an effort to label vehicles such as trucks as major sources of pollution.”
    The president also promoted biodiesel— a blend of organically-derived fuel with conventional diesel— as a way to reduce America’s dependence of foreign oil. “My administration supports a flexible, cost-effective renewable fuel standard,” Bush said. “Its proposal would require fuel producers to include a certain percentage of ethanol and biodiesel in their fuel.”

    clayton, if you are too lazy to read a couple of paragraphs about something supposedly so important to you, you must not be very serious about this and as such I'm almost inclined to close this topic.

    If you really want to do something, learn a little bit more about preservation efforts. Start here with the History Channel supported Save Our History program. It is about preserving US historical sites, but they have a 44 page education manual you can download which may give you some ideas about applying these preservation efforts to places like Rome. Maybe some organization associated with this program can point you in the right direction for overseas preservation efforts.

    I missed this post the first time. This is not the place to play such "games".

    clayton, no more "I need volunteers/helpers" threads. No SPAM theads or posts either. If you have a point to make, please state it. If you have nothing to add to a discussion, then don't post. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Topic closed.
