While we are cognizant that carbon dioxide emissions from cars are having a lasting and negative impact on our climate and human health, we continue to do little to mitigate the harm.It became increasingly clear that the parties contributing to the emissions problem are a set of interacting players. It also became evident that the portrayal of this system and the related environmental and resource issues as described in this work is a unique interdisciplinary synthesis of philosophy, scientific data related to climate change, automotive technology, domestic policy, and socio-historical information. "Mary Gresens makes important contributions to our society's effort to understand the consequences of the continuing degradation of its physical environment caused by some of the very technologies that made modern society possible." - Jay Reuscher, Professor, Georgetown University "This analysis represents a serious and substantive attempt to deal with a pressing economic and ecological concern." -Terrence Reynolds, Chair Department of Theology, Georgetown University "This book addresses a real problem by using information from several disciplines, presenting the scientific evidence clearly and convincingly, and making concrete policy proposals. It points to alarming responsibility for future generations." -Wilfried Ver Eecke, Professor, Georgetown University
