Truth in advertising in Norway: Cars are not environmentally friendly

CarEctomy.com reports that Norway's Conumer Ombudsman has ruled: cars are detrimental to the environment, and it is officially false advertising to claim otherwise. Specifically, car advertisements are not allowed to use the phrases "green," "clean," or "environmentally friendly," and the senior official is quoted as saying “cars cannot do anything good for the environment except less damage than others.”
