    New help in making my self defense of car package against enviromentalists.

    there's a statistic i've been looking for that i can't find about global warming and stuff: how much CO2 is emitted in total, and how much of it is because of humans? on TG they also once showed a diagram explaining how much of CO2 comes from cars, if somebody could find that it would be great.
