How the Clean Cars Program Curbs Global Warming Pollution in Oregon

Executive Summary

The transportation sector produces 38 percent of Oregon’s global warming pollution. Cars and Global Warming explains how Oregon 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 Oregon’s contribution to global warming.
