Removing Older Cars Will Reduce Emissions

A survey from the Pew Research Center found that more than half (52%) of those polled believe the U.S. government isn’t doing enough on climate change. When asked what they would like to see done, 71% said they want the government to impose tougher fuel-efficiency standards for all vehicles.

While auto manufacturers are building new cars with more fuel-efficient engines and some are even coming out with electric models, there are still older vehicles on the roads. These older cars do not have the “green” technology that their older counterparts do and continue to spew emissions into the air. In order to reduce greenhouse gases, people need to take their gas-guzzling cars off the road and sell them to buy a newer, more fuel-efficient car.
