Cars and light trucks produce approximately 20 percent of Washington's global warming pollution. Cars and Global Warming explains how Washington 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 Washington's contribution to global warming.
