New York, Northeast U.S. States to Cut CO2 From Vehicle Fuels
By Jeremy van LoonJan. 6 (Bloomberg) -- New York and 10 other northeastern U.S. states agreed to develop new standards for low-carbon fuels burned in car and truck engines to help reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide, the main gas blamed for global warming.
The states, which include Pennsylvania and New Jersey, may try to run more vehicles on electricity and fuel manufactured from plants, known as biofuel, a statement on the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection Web site said.
"After power generation, transportation is the next logical target for reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions," Environmental Commissioner Laurie Burt said in the statement.
Cars and trucks contribute almost a fifth of the world's output of heat-trapping CO2. U.S. states, led by California, are enacting rules to cut pollution to improve air quality and slow climate change. The federal government has failed to pass national legislation to limit emissions of gases that spawn the so-called greenhouse effect that holds heat close to the earth's surface.
The U.S. has no international restrictions on greenhouse gases, having never ratified the Kyoto agreement, a 1997 United Nations-sponsored treaty that commits industrialized countries to reduce CO2 emissions about 5 percent from 1990 levels through 2012. The U.S. and China are world's largest greenhouse gas producers.
U.S. President-elect Barack Obama has pledged to increase clean-energy spending by $15 billion a year. Some of the money may come from an economic stimulus bill planned early this year that's intended to back wind, solar and biofuels technologies, improve energy efficiency and create "green" jobs.
