Read the section “What’s Your Take” found on page 78 (15th Edition) of your text. Address each of the following:
- Should U.S. automakers switch to diesel engines as the Europeans have?
- Should global climate change be considered in the discussion regarding the use of diesel fuels? Should problems of air pollution (particulate emissions) prevent the increased use of diesel fuel?
- The U.S. government is proposing limiting imports of foreign cars that are generally more ‘environmentally favorable’. This move will help automakers in the U.S. and arguably provide more jobs. Do the benefits to U.S. companies and workers outweigh the environmental impacts? What are your views?
