AUTOMOBILE POLLUTION• Cars - together with power stations- are the main producers of CO2.• Today 500 million cars world-wide emit four billion tones of CO2 into the atmosphere - around 20 per cent of the total quantity produced by mankind.• In the year 2030, 2 billion cars will grow to an estimated 1.3 billion tones by 2030. CO2 emissions from traffic world-wide will mean that petrol consumption would then increase to more than 7.5 billion tones.
