Top Gear man vs climate change?!

Stranger things have happened I guess.  Days after Jeremy Clarkson got fired by the BBC for punching his producer, the former Top Gear presenter suddenly found himself, instead of driving yet another fuel-guzzling sports car to some exotic location, cycling down the road to Damascus.

Now he’s been persuaded by the Guardian to join its campaign to call on charitable foundations to divest their interests in fossil fuel companies.

“I was the poster boy for petrolheads. Now I want to become a – perhaps less gendered – poster person for the carbon-haters.”

Yup, he said that.  What next?  Status-obsessed Hong Kongers ditching their cars in favour of the MTR?
