Queensland Rail indoctrinating passengers
This is an activist piece, even by the greener-than-thou standards of previous BBC productions, seeking to appeal to the audience that turned out to see Al Gore’s slice of climate change alarmism, An Inconvenient Truth.

I encourage everyone to follow Mr McMahon's lead.
