Lets do some oil math
Lets look at a car I use to own
3.8 liter V6 Oldsmobile
3.8 liters = 1 cubic gallon
4 stroke (suck, squeeze, bang, blow) it's an air pump.
So, that means cruising down the freeway at 2,500 RPM I am able to fill two thousand five hundred empty 1 gallon milk jugs with exhaust fumes every minute.
I will be driving 30 minutes to work so...
2,500 X 30 = 75,000 (empty milk jugs filled with exhaust fumes)
I need to drive home today...
75,000 X 2 (the return trip) = 150,000 (empty milk jugs filled with exhaust fumes)
I'm not alone in America so...
150,000 X 62,000,000 (registered vehicles) =
9,300,000,000,000 (empty milk jugs fulled with exhaust fumes)
IN ONE DAY! This is just the cars and this is only looking at America.
We've probably run our entire atmosphere through internal combustion engines since 1950, maybe a few times :/ It really is out of control.
