    That's our ex-Governator! Kind of make you wish the predictions in Demolition Man had at least partly come true...

    I like what he's saying of course but does he still drive five Hummers?

    Didn't he get one converted to hydrogen by GM? Perhaps he could pay Tesla to do a conversion. Or Gadget.

    As I remember there was a big event where the H2 Hummer was announced-presented and Arnold was there.
    Then he got in his own Hummer and drove away.

    I don't know if Arnold changed in that regard, but sometimes people change to the degree that their past becomes somewhat irrelevant. Arnold might be someone climate skeptics listen to (in so far as they listen to anything that doesn't rhyme with their stubbornly held notions).

    I am open to any changes he has made.
    His super macho muscle building old boys womanizing club giant cigar biggest-car-possible-made-just-for-him image is long crafted.
    I also see that his democratic wife and poles showing what California voters want has influenced him over time. If he has moved over the the light side then he may persuade others still rooted in in his past.

    This piece is about how some cities, mainly Zurich, are giving priority to pedestrians and public transport. Once example is that trams can change the traffic lights in their favour as they approach them, and congestion charging is mentioned. It's not about preventing anyone from owning a vehicle.
