California helps consumers buy green cars. If only we had these for houses…

California Pollution Label

From Autopia:

The California Air Resources Board is making it easier to identify “greener” cars by requiring new vehicles to display window stickers indicating how much smog-forming and global warming pollution the car produces. The label will note the vehicle’s “smog score” and “global warming score” on a 10-point scale, with cleaner cars getting higher scores.

Miles per gallon is only a measure of efficiency (and not a very good one apparently), which a consumer needs to make an informed choice, but it doesn’t tell the whole pollution story.  After all, motorcycles get great gas mileage
