Transcript: Drive Clean By: Gehreen Brar What is Initiative? What is Initiative? Drive clean was implicated by the government of Ontario to reduce the total amount of smog-causing emissions from light-duty vehicles by about one-third every year. Vehicles that are seven years and older need to pass an emissions test before you can renew your registration and licence plates. When and why was it started? Who does it affect? When and why was it started? Who does it affect? It was started in 1999 and has been continued for some time It was started to contribute to reducing emissions as a result of the mandatory requirement for vehicle emissions testing and repairs, with advances in cleaner fuels and vehicle technology adding more clean air gains. This affects society since it is a positive step towards addressing the issue of climate change since it reduce the emission levels of co2 It also affects the government since the money goes to them How does it address the issue of global warming? It addresses the issue of global warming in many ways. One way that drive clean is addressing the problem is that smog-causing emissions of hydrocarbons (HC) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) from light-duty vehicles (LDVs) by an estimated 397,636 tonnes. Emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), a poisonous gas, by more than 3.8 million tonnes, and carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas, by about 327,000 tonnes. Therefore, it addresses global warming by cleaner fuels and better vehicle maintenance have contributed to a steady decrease in the overall emissions inventory from vehicles. How does it address the issue of global warming? Is there any data or information on how effective the initiative is ... Is there any data or information on how effective the initiative is at reducing the problem? 2009 2011 2014 total CO2 emission reductions due to improved vehicle fuel efficiency, as a result of Drive Clean related repairs, was approximately 327,000 tonnes. In the graph below it shows how these factors have contributed to fewer pollutants in the overall vehicle emissions inventory in the Drive Clean program area Is this initiative working as it was intended? Is this initiative working as it was intended? Yes, this initiative is working as it was intended since it was intended to reduce the levels of emissions and work towards less pollution from out cars The data shows that these reduction happened and how this will improve the state of climate change Story 2 WORK CITED JavaScript is required to view this site.

The History of CAFE Regulation <-working together-> 2008-9 Big Three in trouble Honda Civic Rep. Upton Michigan THEN Price sensitivity Auto Execs testify before Senate Committee Sen. John McCain Current Events "The Inhofe-Upton bill allows many Clean Air Act programs to continue, but takes away the agency’s authority to apply the landmark law to carbon dioxide. A deal negotiated with automakers to limit carbon dioxide emissions from cars and light trucks would be allowed to stand through 2016, but no further greenhouse gas emissions rules for vehicles would be permitted. State programs to try to address global warming and carbon emissions would be allowed to continue." Every month that passes brings us closer to the day when we will be dependent on imported energy for 50 percent of our requirements. A new embargo under these conditions could have a devastating impact on jobs, industrial expansion, and inflation at home. Our economy cannot be left to the mercy of decisions over which we have no control. – President Ford urging Congress to act to reduce dependence on foreign oil, April 10, 1975 1978 CAFE regulation begins 1985 CAFE increases cease Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole Sen.
