Starting this week France will start posting eco labels that will be indicate the CO2 emissions per kilometer for each car.
As France’s environment minister, Nelly Olin, said, “We must avoid a drift towards cars that are too big for our towns, too polluting, like in other countries."
Hopefully Olin hasn't visited our hometown, where soccer moms drive Hummers to go grab a gallon of milk at the grocery store. And we really hope Olin doesn't know that we've currently made a sport out of watching college girls try to parallel-park the SUVs that their daddies bought them.
A matching "energy label" will also become compulsory for French homes starting in July.
