ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the government of Quebec to impose California-style limits on vehicle emissions, which are thought to cause global warming. The decision caused continentwide struggle to get automakers to build cars and trucks with lower greenhouse-gas emissions. Despite California's effort to treat global warming as an air pollution issue, fuel consumption is directly linked to climate change theory. Many scientists say excess carbon dioxide in the air traps heat and threatens to disrupt the global climate.
