Jeff: So, you are pretty in tune with global warming. You are pretty in tune with the environment — conscious, environmentally conscious. What do you do to do your part for help protecting the environment?
Tim: Yeah, well, I think I do quite a bit. I grew up in an area that's really environmentally conscious. Oregon is pretty environmentally conscious, so I recycle. It's pretty easy to recycle in Oregon. They just pick it right up at your house. You don't have to separate it. They separate it for you, so I recycle as much as I possibly can.
Jeff: But maybe those are traditional things. Do you do anything sort of more advanced or more modern than just recycling? Is there anything in your life that's more more modern?
杰夫：不过这些都是传统的事情。你有没有做过比回收利用更先进的事情?你在生活中有没有做过更现代的事情?Tim: Well, one thing: I recently bought a hybrid car.
Jeff: A hybrid car.
Jeff: What's a hybrid car?
Tim: So it is a car that basically gets better gas mileage cause what my car does is I have to put gas in it. I have to put gas in it but when I break it takes the energy created by the heat from the breaking and it charges the battery, and then the battery can help power the car, so it's half gasoline, half — just electric energy from the battery.
Jeff: Really. Electric and gas.
Jeff: Really interesting. So do you have to charge the car at night? Do you have to plug it in or anything like that?
Tim: No, my car just by breaking it charges the battery completely. Occasionally, I've heard of some people that if they leave their car for like a year or something they have to go back and they'll have to plug in the battery and it will charge up, but for the most part I don't have to do very much at all.
Jeff: Wow. So you pretty environmentally conscious dude.
Tim: I try.
