Just in case you don't know how much CO2 your car emits you might find it listed here: http://www.smmtco2.co.uk/co2search2.asp

 My truck's not listed

My truck wasn't listed :(

After all these years of speculations and heated debates, I still haven't seen any definitive proof CO2 emissions have any serious impact on global warming. The whole concept is theoretical, and seems to serve mainly as a money boat for politicians. However, I think it is good to take care of the environment, so I'm all for cleaner fuels.

When was the last time anyone heard anything about the ozone hole?

Not long ago, most scientists thought we were on the verge of another mini ice age. I think the current trend is a confused rerun of that idea, with the blame-bearing industries shifted from logging and fishing to automobiles and energy production. Either way, it's nothing to spend money on; most recycled products are more harmful to the environment than new ones, and many energy companies trade credits anyway, so improving energy efficiency won't necessarily help. The best way to help the environment is to get up, go out, and actually help the environment.

Nobody has proven CO2 to be a decisive factor when it comes to climate changes.

BTW, even is so, human's aren't the biggest source of it - one must remember about natural habitats and organisms which are a much bigger source of CO2.

Can I just point out that electric cars do *not* emit zero CO2? The electricity they use comes from 'somewhere', usually coal-fired power stations, or if you're lucky, a wind farm, or if you're unlucky, a nuclear power plant.

 oh global warming...

Just wanted to throw in my two (five?) cents.

-CO2 in the atmosphere acts to warm it, so its not an outrageous leap to think that more CO2 would cause, on average, more warming effect. In fact, without this effect life wouldn't exist as we know it, the planet would be too cold.

-CO2 concentrations have been increasing dramatically since industrialization, part of the issue in proving such things is relying on models rather than having the direct observations, but see the Mauna Loa observatory measurements as an example of recent increases.

-Burning fossil fuels isn't the only thing releasing CO2. For example, biomass burning particularly in South America and Africa during the dry season releases tons of carbon as well.

-The best explanation of the global average temperature increase is found using both natural oscillations plus an anthropogenic component. I've seen it in multiple studies, but the one I recall off the top of my head is a presentation I saw at a climate symposium. This seems to be the general consensus in the field.

-There's always going to be someone who thinks their data is telling them something different than you think it's telling you. Conclusive proof in science is hard to come by.

-This is yet another great example of scientists being caught up in their own field and needing to do more than just publish another paper.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
