Nuclear automobiles, the lowest CO2 vehicle on the planet. The big Mars rover is direct nuclear and also ZERO CO2. ..HG..

Even if it ran on gasoline, it would contribute CO2 to a different planet, so no problems.

I suspect that the 2013 numbers will also show 100%+ increases, led by the new Renault Zoe and Smart ED.
