Honda Publishes Cradle To Grave Greenhouse Gas Totals
August 26th, 2012 1:40 PM Share
Honda says it is the world’s first car maker to disclose the totals of all greenhouse gas emissions caused globally during production and use of its products. In the fiscal year that ended March 31, 225.06 million tons of greenhouse gases were produced while making, using, an even disposing of Honda products, including motorcycles, power products, and cars.
During making of those products 4.2 million tons were created, or 1.9 percent of the total. By far the largest amount, 195.88 million tons, or 87 percent, are created while customers use Honda cars and motorcycles.
The estimates of greenhouse gas emissions were calculated in conformity with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

This debate will never end. AGW is about the future, so unverifiable claims can be made. Statists such as socialists and similar rent-seekers love AGW because it is an excuse to take control of everything. (Yes, everything.) Modern-day Gnostics love AGW because it is the special knowledge that distinguishes them from the lumpen proletariat. Shallow thinkers love AGW because it raises their self-image. The media loves AGW because an anxious (about anything) public is a media-consuming public. Tax eaters love AGW because it is a lever to secure more attention and money. Con men love AGW because it makes money for them. (The skeptics have other ways to make a living.) Conspiracy theorists love AGW because it feeds their paranoia. Bottom line: Doom will always be just around the corner.
"In fact, the real scientific debate is OVER" Except for mistakes, omissions, and a few lies. Biggest contributor to the greenhouse effect is water vapor, so let's see a plan to eliminate that from the air.
When you lefty greenies say "denialist", don't you really mean heretic?
How many CAGW advocates does it take to change a light bulb?
