We were all wrong, cars and polution aren't the problem.

Based on studies from the UN (and we all know how perfect they are ) the real problem with greenhouse gases is not the car, not factory polution, not hairspray, but instead too much flatulence.

A United Nations report has identified the world's rapidly growing herds of cattle as the greatest threat to the climate, forests and wildlife. And they are blamed for a host of other environmental crimes, from acid rain to the introduction of alien species, from producing deserts to creating dead zones in the oceans, from poisoning rivers and drinking water to destroying coral reefs.
The 400-page report by the Food and Agricultural Organisation, entitled Livestock's Long Shadow, also surveys the damage done by sheep, chickens, pigs and goats. But in almost every case, the world's 1.5 billion cattle are most to blame. Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together.

If we could only convince India to eat all those cows maybe global warming wouldn't be a problem. Another scenario would be to harness all that potential energy for our vehicles.
