Pollution: Greenpeace looked at the climate impact of cars

Cars sold worldwide in 2018 will pollute as much over their lifetime as all the inhabitants of the European Union do in one year. This is what Greenpeace France revealed in this new study.

    More Bullzhit! As a mechanic I can tell you cars sold in America are zero or near zero emissions. It’s the 3rd world countries f*cking the environment up.

    Still automobile is running by petrol - not a big project of renewable energy is seen anywhere - no government or private concern is seriously eger to run automobiles and all other transportations by using renewable energy - aeroplanes are also polluting the air in the sky - up and down everywhere air is polluted which induced warming - oceans and its all living creatures are also in deep crisis for oil drilling and shipments ... !!!

    That’s right, a future where you can only walk, ride a bike, or row a boat.

    Your headline implies for example: The lifetime of a car is about 15 years but let's just say 10 years. So 10 year of car pollution = 1 year of European people polution? Cull the herd? The problem doesn't appear to be cars if this video is to be believed. Watching the video revealed that not europeans, but European emmisions. Many don't watch the videos. Please address this headline.

    Axaxaxaaxaxxa sorry but quite don't believe to a bung of "eco" idiots in their propaganda! This is just one side of the medal. Guess what marine transport have even bigger impact, while the air-flights are potential "winner" producing even more... and yet simple thing as fashion harms the environment more then flights and shipping combined... BUT NO GREENPEACE IDIOTS TELLS YOU THAT?! F**king bastards! Keep that pity propaganda for someone else!
