- Shouldglobal climate change be considered in the discussion regarding the useof diesel fuels? Should problems of air pollution (particulateemissions) prevent the increased use of diesel fuel?
- TheU.S. government is proposing limiting imports of foreign cars that aregenerally more ‘environmentally favorable’. This move will helpautomakers in the U.S. and arguably provide more jobs. Do the benefitsto U.S. companies and workers outweigh the environmental impacts? Whatare your views?
