Default US CO2 emissions at a 20-yr low

Due to rapid uptake of cheap natural gas. Market forces.

Are the climate alarmists happy? Of course not....
They'll only be happy with implementation of top-down control, not with results.

Meh. I care both about the environment and cars. There is no reason they can't work together.

Besides, the amount of emissions of all the cars of all the members combined is still probably less than a coal plant lets off in a year. Even with excessive use of flat-shift and anti-lag launch control.


Isn't that why turbo-4s are becoming so popular? 30 mpg and 300 hp.

The 20 year low has nothing to do with a slow economy and $4.00 a gallon gas. It is all due to fracking I tell you....
