Tell Automakers: Stop Fighting Progress on Global Warming

Environmental Defense take action for the environment...online

*Tell Automakers - Stop Fighting Progress on Global Warming*

You would think that hybrid cars, better engineering and rising gas prices would combine to make every year's new cars burn less gas than the year before. But it turns out that each year since
1988, new cars are spewing even more global warming pollution into the air.

The damage from global warming is more visible every day, and emissions from cars are a major contributor. But automakers are blocking progress on global warming, fighting state and national efforts to curb global warming pollution.

Find out which automakers are responsible for the most global warming pollution, and ask them to support, not block, policies that reduce it.

Take action:

What's at Stake: In the last five years, gasoline prices have soared, and more fuel-saving hybrid-electric vehicles debuted to an enthusiastic audience. That should, in theory, lead to less global warming pollution from cars and trucks. After all, the less gas cars burn, the less carbon dioxide they release.

Yet carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from U.S. cars and light trucks jumped 25 percent from 1990 to 2003. Both total emissions and average emissions per vehicle continue to rise, even over the last five years.

Yet the major automakers still fight cutting carbon pollution in the U.S., the world's largest auto market. In February 2005, the big automakers sued the state of California, for example, to block the state's clean cars law.

Take action! Send an email to the CEOs of Ford, GM, Toyota, Mazda, Honda, DaimlerChrysler, Porsche, Mitsubishi, BMW and Nissan. Tell them to stop blocking progress on global warming.

Your letter will be addressed and sent to: Major Automakers

----THIS LETTER WILL BE SENT IN YOUR NAME----

Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here],

I am concerned about the growing damage global warming is doing today. The global warming pollution that your products add to the atmosphere each year is growing, in spite of high gas prices and new technology like hybrids.

I ask you to stop blocking state efforts to control global warming pollution, and to support a national cap on greenhouse gases.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

----END OF LETTER TO BE SENT----
