Hybrids for all and plug in hybrids with like a 10kwh battery for the people who want to think they are being extra green.

I figured they were going with best case scenario economy.
About 2 ton of CO2 per year for a gasoline burning car is very optimistic, only if you include tiny diesel cars you can't buy in the US. If you only count 40mpg cars driven the standard 12,000 miles per year and each gallon of gasoline produces 20lb of CO2, should be 3 tons per year. IMO a built in trap for any math illiterate that tries to challenge their numbers.
I was wating for someone to ask where did you find that and lead them right into a red pill trap, but can't do that now. The chart was also made for people who would argue "but my 1980 diesel car gets 60mpg" and "so your chart is wrong".
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
