ABSTRACT
Encourages consumers in the U.S. to buy fuel-efficient automobiles in order to help address the problem of global warming. Carbon dioxide emissions from automobiles that contribute to the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which in turn contribute to global warming; Information on the savings consumers can realize by buying fuel-efficient automobiles; Samples of some of the fuel-efficient automobiles available in the market; Tips to automobile owners on how they can maximize their contribution to solving the global warming problem.

    The economic benefits of a multi-gas approach to climate change mitigation are clear. However, there is still a debate on how to make the trade-off between different greenhouse gases (GHGs). The trade-off debate has mainly centered on the use of Global Warming Potentials (GWPs), governing the...
