Brown welcomes Rudd's hybrid

Labor leader Kevin Rudd's promise to swap to a hybrid car is welcome catch-up, Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.
All four Greens senators have hybrid cars and, previously, Senator Brown had LPG (gas) powered cars.
"And we welcome Queensland Premier Peter Beattie's plan to charge higher registration fees for gas guzzlers, a move the Greens have advocated for a decade," Senator Brown said.
"But its important low-income people get help and that's where a carbon tax comes in – it can be used to help poorer people move to clean, green alternatives vehicles and to boost public transport."
