The annual deviations shown in the chart have been adjusted to be relative to the period 1850-1899 (for Hadley Centre/CRU) and 1880-1899 (for NASA/GISS) to better monitor the EU objective not to exceed 2 ºC above pre-industrial values. Over Europe average annual temperatures during the real pre-industrial period (1750-1799) were very similar to those during 1850-1899.

In addition to being very expensive to run, SUVs are very fuel inefficient. They emit twice as much carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen dioxide as an average car. These chemicals contribute to air pollution as well as global warming!
