SAVE THE PLANET — DRIVE A HYBRID: Er, except when it’s air-freighted to you from Japan. “The Lexus LS600H, which costs £84,000, was a gift from Lexus to the 65-year-old former Beatle, who helped promote the hybrid vehicle. But instead of arriving by boat as expected, the car was flown to Britain on a Korean Air flight, creating a carbon footprint almost 100 times bigger than if it had come by sea.”

So much for driving “guilt-free.”
