Doris, when are you going to stop all your bull ****?
Only a fool will buy this green thing, the FIA is finally starting to at least looking for/regaining some of its rightful power which in the long term means revenue/ money, this is nothing more than a strategic move, the engine manufacturers were totally against this new engine formula and they are the once that are going to foot the bill , but it seems that they have realised that it will pay to side with the FIA then with FOM as they are in the same type of water as the FIA re FOM finances/money.
Re the new engine rule, its best to wait for the final technical specifications/rules before blabbing as some things which were talked about are not there anymore, some had already changed, while some has been added.

"Even if you don't believe in climate change, using less fuel, producing less pollution, exposing everyone to less chemicals is a good thing."

Yes but the point is nature has non polluting resources that we could use. Real scientists have known this for decades.

On team orders, I believe that the FIA took the easy way out of the problem. Rather than really go into it, they ducked the problem, and I think it will come back to bite them. I think most fans are willing to accept team orders towards the end of the season, but not at the start.

To rely on "bringing the sport into disrepute" is just another way to apply the rules subjectively, when they want to and not when they don't want to. If this rile pre-dated the team orders rule, why was the team orders rule needed anyway? Smacks of a rudderless ship.

one thing that seems to be overlooked in the "green" argument. f1 cars probably do not even contribute 0.01 % of the carbon footprint of an f1 weekend. jets, helicopters thousands of cars, electricity generation etc. so we can basically ignore any comment that the new formula is anything to do with "green" intentions.

I do not care what you believe at this point but try to crawl from under your rock and look around. A lot of people live in deNile like you.

But saying that it's a total BS to complain about 20+ cars how they should be "green". It's just missing the point the same way like to blame cars in general for global warming. Cattle produce more greenhouse gases then cars and people are getting fat eating them. Ban cows I say and let F1 race like the should. No KERS or other electric gimmicks.
