ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the carbon emission of vehicles in Australia, which constitutes 1.4 percent of the world's total. He mentions that atmospheric CO2 levels are the highest, which jumped from 280 parts per million (PPM) at the start of the 20th century to 380 PPM today. The author agrees with John Schellnhuber's hypothesis on global warming and climate change.
