Are you a Billy Idol fan, listening to his music while driving? The Rock star is the advocate for New York City’s air improvement campaign and proclaims ”billy never idles” across multimedia platforms to get New York drivers to stop idling. The website billyneveridles.nyc. raises awareness of citizens to turn off cars while not moving.
It’s as important for residents in Doha as in New York City, to realize the impact of idling cars on air quality. Just as rock star Billy Idol advocates and encourages climate action in New York, so do we, at SustainableQATAR.
As we navigate physical social distancing and travel restrictions, these COVID-19 times offer an opportunity to reflect on our daily habits and behaviors that are often made on auto-pilot. We have the choice to shift our thinking, train in resilience, and zoom out for a broader post-COVID19 perspective, and to plan ahead for our new daily routines that become the new normal.
To avoid 164 kg of CO2 per year, you would need to turn off your car instead of idling for how much time?
SustainableQATAR challenges you to test your sustainability knowledge, and to inspire and motivate people of all ages in Qatar to act. Check your answer and see suggestions on idling your car less at SustainableQATAR.com.
