US Cars Emit Nearly Half Of World's Automotive CO2 Environment

According to a new report from the Environmental Defense Fund, the US has 30% of the world's cars, but because our cars are less efficient and we drive them more, they account for nearly half (45%) of the world's automotive CO2 emissions.

If we made more efficient cars, we might actually be able to sell some of them to the rest of the world. Just one example of how the claim that conservation hurts the economy is bull.
