North Vancouver first to pass environment warnings on gas pumps

Further to my recent post Oil industry has made smokers of us all, North Vancouver city counsel voted unanimously Monday night, to start labeling gas pumps with warnings similar to those mandated on Canadian cigarette packs.  See:  Climate change stickers mandatory on North Vancouver gas pumps.

Along with captivating pictures (three of the samples being considered are shown below), a staff report has recommended call to action messages on the labels such as:

Electric vehicle incentives: “Get $5,000 toward a purchase of a new electric car.”
The B.C. Scrap-It program: “Trade in your clunker for a transit pass worth $1,360.”
Fuel-efficient driving tips: “Save fuel through properly inflating your tires.”
“Idling your vehicle for more than 10 seconds wastes more gas than restarting your engine.”
