ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the growing threat of carbon dioxide emission to global warming. Legislators across Europe are putting effort to deliver the promises of the Kyoto treaty of 1997. The European Union is planning to set a limit of 130 grams per kilometer by 2012. In Great Britain, no tax is charged for a car producing less than 100 grams per kilometer.
