Uncool change

Cadogan, John
October 2007
Wheels;Oct2007, p36
The author comments on the environmental effects of global warming. He says that elite scientific opinion has it that elevated CO2 levels are warming the Earth, and that most of this effect is anthropogenic or down to humans. It is caused basically by burning coal for electricity and oil for transport and the intrinsic emission of CO 2 when these hydrocarbons are burned.
