I was prepared to star your post until the very last line with the racial remark.
BAD!! No star 4 U.
Another physicist to whom I spoke also claimed that the increasing numbers of black population people could also contribute to global warming as black skin absorbes radiation more quickly and hence contribute to global warming.as more energy is more quickly absorbed then a white reflective surface.In other words the albedo of the planet is decreasing.

Asphalt is porous.
just like chewing cum the white tyre particles will be embedded in it.
also remember it will constantly renewed by white tyres passing over.
I suggest you contact your government official so that he can get it started.
Already incandescent bulbs are being outlawed, let us outlaw black tyres now.
you only need to add a dye to make black tyres look white.
I believe i have seen white tyres somewhere already...possibly antique cars.
