The SUV Owners of America group has launched an advertising campaign blasting California's legislative efforts to curb greenhouse gases. The automakers already have a lawsuit against the measure that goes into effect with 2009 model year vehicles. SUVOA spokesman Ron DeFore argues that even if all vehicles in California were eliminated, worldwide greenhouse gases would be cut by one only one-tenth of one percent. Calling it "absurd," he says the law will "have no effect on global temperatures."

The SUV owners main fear is that the only way automakers can meet the greenhouse-gas objectives is to build smaller vehicles or drive less.

California officials say the SUV owners erred in estimating California's effect on global warming. They figure it's more like a full one percent.
