This research evaluates the impact of the economic recession on the California Air Resource Board (CARB) strategy for reducing current greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from motor vehicles. The principle potential contribution of this work is that it evaluated whether the rationale behind the CARB strategy is or is not valid under the current, unanticipated economic recession.
