Means of transport

Ever since the beginning of time, humankind has looked for a way to move quickly from one place to another. We started using animals, then came the wheel, the ships, the steam engine, the gas engine, the kerosene, nuclear engines...

Kind of an obssesion, we tried to go faster and faster, following the premise of Machiavelli "The end justifies the means". Using fossil fuels with a high rate of contamination was not a problem... Until now.

There is a new generation worried about the consequences of this use to the enviroment. As a member of Enviromental Working Group, I'd like that all of you fill this survey, about the mean of transport that you have use to arrive to Alicante.

To finish, I'll quote one really catchy advertisement of Greenpeace in 1990, after the tragedy of Exxon Valdez in Alaska:

It wasn't the Exxon Valdez captain's driving that caused the Alaskan oil spill. 
It was yours.
