1) Americans are 5 % of the world's pop but emits 45 % of its carbon dioxide
2) GM produced as much CO2 as AEP
3) Smaller cars produce more CO2 than SUVs because there are more of them
4) U.S. drivers average 11,000 miles per year, 29 % above the global average
5) U.S. cars emit 15 % more carbon dioxide per mile than the global average
6) In 2004 U.S. cars & light trucks emitted 314 metric tons of carbon dioxide
