Climate change has been happening since the beginning of time and will continue till the end of time (how else could have continents been formed?). Nothing will stop it.
We will just end up with boring, bland and appliance hybrid electric cars like Toyota Prius and the climate change nazis will pick another agenda to wipe out in the name of climate change.
p.s. The cars on the road today are 97% more efficient and fuel efficient than the cars on the average back in 1971. A Porsche 911 Turbo/GT3 (270 - 290 gm/km CO2 emissions) would inhale more polluted air in Calcutta or Los Angeles than it expels from the exhaust.
There is no denying that there is a global warming. The question is how much impact human pollution had on it if at all. That's where scientists disagree. Proponents of status quo say humans had no impact while crazed out eco nazis would like us to return to the stone age. I'll agree with you that the auto industry has been IMO unfairly put forward as the main culprit even though they made great improvement in their level of emissions in the last few decades.
Let's face it, a city like London with its millions of inhabitants is facing some serious flooding problems if the level of the Thames River rises a few meters due to a climate change. So apparently it's easier to reduce the emissions to avoid a rise in the river's level as opposed to relocating a whole population.
