In 23/30 July we were told that 'a1998 car is likely to produce less than 15% of the emissions of a late 1980s model'. On page 34 of the ICE/Engineering Council 2020 Vision for Transport on global warming we are informed that 'the average fuel consumption of new cars in 1996 was little better than that in 1984. People are buying bigger, heavier cars with energy consuming extras such as air conditioning and power steering'.
It would be helpful to have some sort of agreed view of what actually is happening on pollution and global gas emissions.
