    The Post reports that Bangkok residents produce just as much carbon dioxide as New Yorkers and more than Londoners, a UN-sponsored study has found.
    Both Bangkok and New York emitted 7.1 tonnes of CO2 a head in 2007, the report found. Bangkok's emissions were higher than those of London's residents, who produced 5.9 tonnes a head.
    The transport sector, responsible for almost 38% of CO2 released annually, is the largest contributor, particularly passenger vehicles.

    Having seen some of the black stuff chugging out of cars and particularly buses in Bangkok, can't say we are surprised...
