Daily Telegraph: Transport doesn't come much greener than that
At the Hay Festival last weekend Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, the Anglo American chairman and former Shell boss, appeared on a debating panel. The discussion was entitled "Is this the End of the Oil Age?" and all the guests were eager to display their green credentials to the assembled tree-huggers. One questioner asked each panellist how they had travelled to the festival and Moody-Stuart explained he'd come in his car.
"It's a Toyota," he said, before adding: "And it's powered by a hydrogen cell." The audience seemed impressed until Moody-Stuart's fellow panellist, one of those dreary Greenpeace representatives, blew him out of the water. He'd arrived by canoe.
