Hi Chris,

With all the talk these days about global warming and the environment, autos play a large role in global warming with their carbon emissions, I am wondering what the effect t their rubber tires have on the environment. With all the millions of cars already out on the road right now and the many more being added every minute, multiply that times at least four for all the tires they require and wear into the
environment. What effect is that having on us?

Thank you,
