Cars and Global Warming


One of the most eye-opening conclusions of reports is that the vehicles we choose today will affect our lives for time to come. Astonishingly, the largest category of current on the road polluters is the small car. We ask ourselves why? Well, simply because there are so many of them on the road. Cars in and light trucks our nations are a huge supply of global warming pollution. United States automobiles emit more than 333 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, which is more than 1/5 of the nation's total CO2 emissions.
Compared with the rest of the planet, American automobiles emissions are excessively high. With only five percent of the world's population and thirty percent of the world's automobiles, the United States put in forty eight percent of the world's automotive CO2 emissions.
Any true effort to battle global warming has to include cutting automobile emissions. Acting now is crucial to slowing global warming and reducing air pollution.
Americans don't all have to drive hybrids to make a change in our nation. And, while we support everyone to use different forms of transportation whenever it is possible, the certainty is that cars are a big part of our American ways of life.

We should be thinking to:
• Put public pressure on the automobile industry to maintain a comprehensive national global warming policy.
• Educate vehicle owners and drivers on what they can do to decrease emissions.
• Explore ways we Americans can do our part to progress fuel efficiency and cut global warming pollution from America's automobiles.
So, if we all did our part to decrease automobile emissions and if all of us purchased the most fuel efficient vehicles that met our needs, and if all of us found ways to drive a less, if all of us did our best to keep our vehicles maintained, and if all of us contributed in prioritizing global warming as a issue in our daily lives, we would considerably decrease global warming pollution from America's vehicles.

  7. great article!
    I think something else we can do is to have greater emission regulating laws like California has for the entire nation. I know this would be a tough bill to pass but if done then manufacturers would have to abide by the regulations put in place. Hopefully this is something we can look for in the near future!

  9. I am sure that one of the reasons of global warmimg is huge amount of cars which increases almost every day.Until people don't know danger they will not do anything to prevent it. But i hope that soon people will think of pollution that surround them and how it affects their future. I've published an article in my blog and hope it will be interesting for readers:

  11. yes its a very good concept raised in this Blog about the Global Worming. so Automobile companies have to think about it and they have to make some Eco friendly cars, But defiantly some Heritage Cadillac like cars company think about it.
