This special episode of More Power To You was recorded last week at the Bipartisan Policy Council in Washington, D.C. The BPC and the International Council on Clean Transportation sponsored a fascinating panel discussion entitled "International Competitiveness and the Auto Industry: What's the Role of Motor Vehicle Emission Standards?"
This discussion about U.S. emissions standards and America's international competitiveness is covers a range of issues including: emission standards policy diffusion among states and also across countries; first mover advantage for countries that adopt higher emission standards; the impact of higher standards on domestic innovation, investment in production facilities and jobs; what the difference between the U.S. and China's national emissions strategies may mean for global leadership in the future; the outlook for technology advances in biofuels, internal combustion engine vehicles and electric vehicles; and more.
