A very bad habit we all need to know

A Very Bad Habit I noticed among Tsupers and Drivers of Public Use Transportation is to Rev the engine high then shutting the engine abruptly off.  Their excuse is that so the engine can start easier in the morning.  The stupid reason is that they needed to pump enough oil on the top section of the engine and at the same time build enough charge to the battery.

Well... they can come up with all the stupid reasons they like but it's all useless and untrue!

This stupid habit passed on thru many generations has caused more CO2 output and Engine Damage more than we all can realize.

Not only is it bad for the environment, it's also critically bad for the engine.

Revving it high then shutting it off right away will put more fuel into the Combustion Chambers, causing it to be cleaned off from your very crucial lubrication. Since you shut it off, the tendency of the chamber is to suck more fuel and not burning it, therefore making the cylinder walls bare metal in contact with the piston rings bare metal also.  The next time you start your engine, this cylinder condition becomes a harsh and abrasive environment. If you do this everyday... then you are scratching the cylinder walls 365 X in a year!  The effect; shorter  engine life... Frequent Engine Overhauls, Higher Fuel Consumption and Higher CO2 output. Not to mention the Bad Effects to our respiratory health. Unburned or incomplete burning of fossil fuel is the culprit to our Carbon Footprints.

Since we can't stop the majority of people from doing this... we can protect and augment all the bad effects of this very bad practice.  With the Green Tech Program and GTO (Green Technology Oil), the walls of our cylinders will always be protected no matter what. Instant Early Morning start up becomes the norms and the drivers will feel that they no longer need to do this unnecessary revving anymore.  It helps to know. :-)

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
