Planet Earth is Home to One Billion Cars

It's Official: We Now Have One Billion Vehicles on the Planet - by John Voelcker
With one billion vehicles on the planet it is essential that we protect places like the vast lagoon and mangrove forests of Laguna San Ignacio
According to this article on TPM the world has reached the billion vehicle mark. What sort of impact will this have on our environment? Although we do not know the exact significance nor timeframe of the consequence of carbon emmisions associated with one billion vehicles, we do know the earth's climate will change dramatically leading to mass extinctions and severe weather patterns. Whether you believe in global warming or not, we all must recognize the importance of protecting the wild areas that remain on this planet to offset the future challenges we face.
