Falling Used-Car Demand Puts Pressure on Carvana and Other Dealers – The New York Times

MIT study finds huge carbon cost to self-driving cars – Dezeen

The widespread adoption of self-driving cars will create a major bump in carbon emissions without changes to their design, a study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has found.

The study found that with a mass global takeup of autonomous vehicles, the powerful onboard computers needed to run them could generate as many greenhouse gas emissions as all the data centres in operation today.

These data centres currently produce around 0.14 gigatonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year, equivalent to the entire output of Argentina or around 0.3 per cent of global emissions, according to the researchers.

A similar amount would be generated by one billion aut…….

The analysis, published Monday in the journal Nature Human Behavior and drawing on data from 15 count…….
