I'll go ahead and be "that guy": Factory farming of animals is a significantly larger contributor to global climate change than pollution from cars. It's not just the methane, hydrogen sulfide and ammonia emmissions, either... it's the fact that half the crops we grow are fed to animals, which itself requires massive amounts of diesel gas to move around. Depletion of the water tables is a major issue, too.

What I'm saying is, if what motivates you to change your consumption habits is reducing your harmful effect on the environment, become a vegetarian. Driving 20km to work in a Chevy Volt does almost no harm in comparison.
