CO2 Emitted by Selected Vehicles

This chart tells a story, doesn’t it?

The approximate value for Lear Jet CO2 emissions is thanks to a calculation on http://benzzo.co.tv/learjet-fuel-consumption and is based on values from the DOE site http://www.eia.doe.gov/ Here is the Entrance script for producing the chart:


    plot rotatedbarchart

      all axislabels,
      datalabels right
    with

      no outlines
      baroverlap 0
      barwidth .85

      scale x 0 1800 600
      frame insets 175 40 85 0
    select
      `grams_per_km`,name, concat(grams_per_km, ' g/km')
      from co2_emissions
    union
    select
      1766, 'Lear Jet', concat(1766, ' g/km')
      order by grams_per_km
;

Finally, here’s sample data for the various cars:

“383″,”Escalade”
“346″,”Hummer”
“324″,”Corvette”
