think the main problem with conventional automobiles is greenhouse gas
emissions. There's also the problem of oil imports, but I worry more
about emissions of heat-trapping gases. And if we don't reverse course on
greenhouse gas emissions soon, we're going to face catastrophic climate
change. A new study, in fact, just came out which basically said we need to
peak in global emissions by 2015 to 2020 if we're to avoid catastrophic
warming, and then cut emissions 75 percent from current levels. So we're
going to have three times as many cars on the road, and if we're going to
be reducing emissions by, you know, 75 percent, we're going to need cars
that have very, very low emissions of greenhouse gases.
