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