Abstract:

Cars and light trucks produce roughly 25 percent of Connecticut's global warming pollution. Cars and Global Warming explains how Connecticut 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 Connecticut's contribution to global warming.
