 About the Book 

The OECD transport sector produced nearly three times as much carbon dioxide in 1990 as it did in 1960. Most of the increase was due to cars. This study analyzes trends in greenhouse gas emissions from cars and the opportunities for abatement. TheMoreThe OECD transport sector produced nearly three times as much carbon dioxide in 1990 as it did in 1960. Most of the increase was due to cars. This study analyzes trends in greenhouse gas emissions from cars and the opportunities for abatement. The report examines the potential for emission reductions through car fuel economy and alternative fuels. It compares overall greenhouse gas emissions, the state of technical development, and the associated costs. Market niches are identified where alternative fuels may be cost effective in the year 2000. Several case studies illustrate strategies to promote fuel economy and alternative fuels. The study explores ways in which governments could improve their analysis of the options.
