Global Car Industry Still 'Upwardly Mobile'

The world's auto manufacturers produced a record 67 million vehicles in 2006, putting more cars on the road than ever before, according to a new Vital Signs Update from the Worldwatch Institute. While global production grew 4 percent last year, China increased its production by nearly 30 percent, overtaking Germany to become the third largest producer. As Worldwatch Senior Researcher Michael Renner says - 'America's car addiction is becoming a global phenomenon with no sign of reversing'!

Surely not a good sign: governments say 'pay more green tax', then they allow industry growth in transportation sector - mixed messages anyone?
