Hybrid Cars for a Greener World

he type of automobile we drive has a greater impact on the environment than any other consumer choice we make. In just one year, the average car emits nearly 730 pounds of chemicals hazardous to your health, plus more than 10,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (which contributes to global warming). The numbers are even higher for light trucks, such as SUVs. In addition, poor gas mileage leads to increased drilling, more spills from oil tankers and more refineries polluting the environment. Many organizations are working to promote the development and use of hybrid cars, and they need your help.
