Excerpt
Excerpt: Light-duty vehicles are amazing artifacts, made by the worlds largest industry and fueled by the second-largest. American automakers make a new light vehicle every 2 seconds. Cheaper per kilogram than a fast-food hamburger, those vehicles meet conflicting requirements for performance, emissions, fuel economy, esthetics, and safety with remarkable skill. Yet, a typical light vehicle releases its own weight in carbon dioxide annually, and each day it consumes gasoline made from about a hundred times its own weight in ancient plants (Lovins et al. 2004). Cars and light trucks use 42% of Americas 10,000 gal/second oil habit and account for 58% of projected growth in U.S. oil use to 2025 [Energy Information Administration (EIA) 2004].
