If Ford Motor Company were a country, it would rank as the 10th largest source of
greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. In its report, Ford estimated that yearly greenhouse
gas emissions from its vehicles and manufacturing plants totaled the equivalent of 400
million metric tons of carbon dioxide, which scientists have identified as one of the
leading man-made causes of global climate change. As a result, Ford has vowed to cut
emissions of greenhouse gases from its popular but gas-guzzling sport-utility vehicles,
sought to burnish its environmental image. The director of the Sierra Club’s global warming
project said cars and light trucks account for about one-fifth of the greenhouse gases
generated in the United States every year.
