Automotive manufacturers are uniquely vulnerable to any CO2 threat, according to Professor Karel Williams of Manchester University's Business School.

"The amount of energy required to make a car move is so transparent, so obvious, and its "green" performance so easily measured, this single measure makes the industry peculiarly transparent," said Williams.

"Oil companies and other huge corporations are also implicated, but its enemies can't sum up their business in terms of CO2 or miles per gallon," said Williams.
