Global Warming Scores For Cars

by | 8th, July 2008

CALIFORNIA is making it mandatory for cars to be labelled with global warming scores.

From 2009, cars will feature with the figure takes into account emissions from vehicle use and fuel production.

The score ranges form one to 10. The higher the score, the cleaner a car is. The score takes into account emissions related to production of fuel for each vehicle as well as the direct emissions from vehicles.

Californian cars already feature a smog score.

It’s all to the good, of course. Americans can show off how green they are by giving themselves a low score, a questionable system in a culture when bigger is better.

Who wants a car with a score of 1 when you can have a perfect 10?

Picture: China today
