            Im hoping people who are seeing blue skies and the stars again, like we are on the East Coast of the US act to help turn the skies Blue again. Buy an Electric or Hybrid car and work towards getting more solar, wind and other forms of natural energy source, into your state. 

            People in  northern India can see the Himalayan mountains for the first time in 30 years, due to the lockdown for CoronaVirus! Good things that have also happened during CV. Greta is probably happy.

                  Get average of 32 mpg, regardless of whether in city or on highway.

                    I don't own a car and mostly ride electric trains.
