This report examines the prospects for substantially reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the U.S. transportation sector, which accounts for 27 percent of the GHG emissions of the entire U.S. economy and 30 percent of the world

Air Pollution is caused by a number of pollutants emanated from various sources. Under sound air pollution control strategy the detailed analysis and assessment of all the pollutants having detrimental effects on human health and environment is required.

Transport is the sector with the highest final energy consumption and, without any significant policy changes, is forecast to remain so. In 2008, the IEA published 25 energy efficiency recommendations, among which four are for the transport sector.

This white paper summarizes the differences between size-based and mass-based efficiency standards, discusses their relative advantages and disadvantages, and provides guidance on the development of future standards. Specifically, the paper argues that size-indexed standards are more effective in promoting efficient technologies, and more neutral with respect to technology.

EPA and NHTSA are issuing this joint Final Rule to establish a National Program consisting of new standards for light-duty vehicles that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve fuel economy. This joint Final Rule is consistent with the

As the U.S. debates an economy-wide CO2 cap-and-trade policy, the transportation sector remains a significant oil security and climate change concern. Even though the transportation sector consumes the majority of the U.S.

As a result of various proposals currently under consideration by EPA, it seems highly likely that many stationary sources of greenhouse gas emissions will face new regulation under the Clean Air Act in coming months.
