Short Circuit - Emission Impossible
Quote from the programme
In Britain we burn a hundred thousand tons of petrol and diesel in our cars each day.
Los angeles has eight million cars for twelve million people.
The pollution is now so bad that on sunny days children and old people are advised to stay indoors.
So the authorities have decided that by the year 2010, 10% of all new cars will produce no emissions at all.
With todays technology that means electric cars.
This science programme for schools examines the problems faced with such vehicles
compared to the conventional petrol and diesel car.
