I don't actually consider that a positive... With one modification I'd be over the fucking moon, and that would be to incorporate carbon capture devices into the engines like are being retrofitted some coal fired power stations, over time, the very engines that polluted our atmosphere could play a part in cleaning it again.

ETA... Of course I'm just ignoring for convenience the high level CO2 we couldn't hope to reach with a car engine.
