Abstract:

Cars and light trucks produce roughly 25 percent of Maryland's global warming pollution. Cars and Global Warming explains how Maryland could reduce global warming emissions from passenger vehicles by adopting California's clean car standards. By requiring advanced-technology vehicles- including hybrid-electric and eventually hydrogen vehicles - and establishing global warming pollution standards, the clean cars program could begin to reduce Maryland's contribution to global warming.
