Report Points to Drastic Emissions Reduction by 2050

By March 20, 2013

Follow me on:

<p>Emission could be cut by as much as 80 percent by 2050, according to a new study out this week from the National Academy of Sciences. Greener cars -- whether electric, hybrid or other alternative fuel-driven vehicles -- should drastically cut national greenhouse gas emissions. President Barack Obama's push for gas-free driving will serve as a strong catalyst for getting the country there, the report concludes.</p>

<p>The report states that the President's push for new vehicle technologies will mean consumer adoption of currently available EVs, as well as future hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, should knock down carbon emissions to about one-fifth of current levels.</p>

<p>The study points out that consumer-drvien cars and small trucks account for about 17 percent of the nation's overall greenhouse gas emissions. The predicted green car movement could cut that level by more than 10 percent.</p>

<p>The Academy underscores that while some consumers may experience sticker show at the initial investment, longer-term benefits outweigh front-end costs.</p>
