Overview

The transportation sector's role in global warming and what can be done about it is the focus of this book. Global climate change has no "quick fix" but requires a long-run strategy that must be comprehensive, addressing growing global demand, energy efficiency, and alternative, noncarbon energy sources.

The book attempts to put the problem of the U.S. transportation system into perspective among worldwide systems. In addition, the effects of engine technology improvements, fuel choice and production, vehicle design, commercial transportation requirements, transportation choices by consumers, and government policies are examined.

Based on presentations by leading transportation experts at the 1991 conference, Transportation and Global Climate Change: Long-Run Options.
