Big Daddy and El Guapo, I don't care how many degrees or other qualifications you have, that is no excuse for your being so condescending towards others.

Vehicle pollution is much more than merely emissions, you have to include the whole lifecycle of the vehicles (and how often those vehicles are replaced). The industries needed to build the vehicle components (plastics, steel, aluminium, glass, etc), the consumables used to maintain and service them, the roads built to drive the vehicles on, etc. Burning gasoline is but one factor.

The world is not coping with the current level of consumption of resources in the USA (and other similarly developed countries). This is not good, but the real danger is the billions in China, India and elsewhere aspiring to the same trappings of the lifestyle of the US. I don't enjoy the prospect of the damage to the environment caused by running 2 billion cars in India/China with environmental standards "we" used to use a couple of decades ago. I also dread the thought of 100 to 200 million cars being built annually just to maintain a fleet size of 2 billion vehicles.

The Iraq war was about oil and oil security (the ability to guarantee future supply).
