I can see how this type of animation can make a statement. But objectively, visualizing vehicle emissions with any color you choose doesn't make it any less true.

@SMRD: You mean Priuses surrounded by bubbles of "smug"? LOLZ!

@draino123: Excellent point! CO is much nastier than CO2, but IDK if it's as much of a "greenhouse gas" eh?
Wiki - Carbon Monoxide
Wiki - Carbon Dioxide

Both get produced by burning stuff, iirc...

Where are the diesels with the bubble of "clean" air around them?

@ba12348: Oh I agree that buildings produce some CO2, either directly or indirectly.

But keeping in mind this is a SIMULATION of what it "might look like" as opposed to actual footage of real CO2 emissions? That's why I object to the "scary image" of CO2 spewing from buildings like that... it crosses from informational to being propaganda-like...

@5Cats pretty sure the shot of the city you are referring to the CO2 is coming from the cars on the roads, or building exhaust fans doing their job. Stick a couple thousand people in the same building and they do have a noticeable CO2 output.

Yes, so? CO2 is a naturally occurring gas. Without it plants would all die.

The shot of the city buildings is just bunkum: CO2 doesn't "leak out" of closed windows of office towers...

@iansquall is correct: humans and all other mammals breath OUT CO2 as well, and there's just no stopping that is there? CO2 is part of human existence, whoever is 'surprised' by this hasn't been paying attention...

The honest truth is CO2 isn't necessarily bad. It helps vegetation a ton. The PROBLEM is the rate of change. That's a big deal and something we need to figure out. We don't want to go through a mass extinction event if we can avoid it.

Ok, I get that CO2 in these contexts would be warmer... but shouldn't it be sinking?
