More vehicles can make more global warming. If numbers of automobiles keep increasing like a present rate, it will be more than a billion vehicles on the road by 2025. Also by 2025, two-thirds of the world's people will live in cities, so traffic jams and pollution will become a big problem in most people's lives. Worst of all will be the megacities of Asia. Therefore, such as, Calcutta, Beijing and Shanghai will each be home to as many as 20 million people, Bombay reach to 25 million. Live in countryside may not be a good idea. Asia is heading for a downpour of acid rain that will destroy forests and shrivel crops. The worst hit look like being south-east China, north-east India, Thailand and Korea, where economic growth is powered by fossil fuels rich in sulphur. Industrialised nations have reduced SO2 emissions. They have also cut production of CFCs and halons, the chemicals that destroy stratospheric ozone. However, the ozone layer is still in danger. Developing nations have until 2010 to slash production under the Montreal Protocol.
