Carbon footprint of Chevy Volt

  1. Hi all, I've heard people try to estimate the carbon footprint from the production of cars based on the cost of production. Can such an estimate be accurate at all?

    Of course it can be "accurate at all" ... the trick is quantifying how accurate.
    I wouldn't bet money on the estimates so obtained - to get a proper idea you need to know the actual method of manufacture. However, automobile manufacture is pretty standardized. You want to read the assumptions.
