The article relates the author's presumption pertaining to the environmental aspects of some automotive products that brought global temperature changes. It has been presumed that people can give accurate details about the amount of carbon dioxide being emmitted into the atmosphere each year. The major cause of the global warming has been explained. The increasing concentration of man-made carbon dioxide is the major cause that will lead to catastrophic consequences for the environment.
