No matter how much manufacturers reduce the direct emissions of individual vehicles, (and putting the ethical and practical absurdities of biofuel aside) there is still the small matter of replacing the entire planetary fleet of cars and building and servicing the infrastructure and maintaining the disconnected living arrangements that the car habit encourages -for an imminent NINE BILLION people . This monumentally destructive endevour cannot be hidden behind a handful of hybrids and a lot of empty promises.
Kick the car habit.

Good news on the car-front - Detroit-loving Dingell has been ousted from his chairmanship of the Energy and Commerce committee of the US House of Representatives. This will make it much easier for Democrats to get green legislation passed once Obama is in office.
