Abstract:

While the Bush administration and federal policymakers continue to resist efforts to reduce global warming pollution, many states are taking dramatic, effective actions to address the threat--including the adoption of the "Clean Cars Program" which sets limits on global warming pollution from cars, light trucks and SUVs. The 10 states that have adopted the Clean Cars Program will cut global warming pollution from cars, light trucks and SUVs by 64 million metric tons per year in 2020, while saving consumers money and reducing the nation's reliance on oil.
