    Scientists have spoken frequently over the last decade warning of the rising levels of "greenhouse gases" in earth's atmosphere. The increase in these gases has been linked to higher surface tempatures, increased storm activity and rising sea levels.

    "If buses are moving well, and carrying more people than the car
    lanes, the bus lane looks empty most of the time. Only a failing or

    lanes such a hard sell in cities run by motorists who want to do the
    green thing but still form their impressions from behind the wheel."
