Abstract

In recent years it has become imperative for the government of United States of America (USA) to sanction vehicle manufaturers that are not compliant with the CO2 emissions target set. Stricter regulations, like Carbon tax and CO2 emissions minimum and maximum caps have been introduced to ensure that the transportation sector which accounts for about 32% of CO2 emission in the USA complies.

The analysis of trends in CO2 emissions in car manufacturing and evaluarion of its impacts on human life and the society as a whole is of paramount importance due to health implications posed to human and its effect on climate and global warming issues.

A detailed review of literature on CO2 emissions in vehicle manufacturing and its impact on human health and the society in USA was carried out to support the study. Also, data from the internet was analysed using data mining techniques. Evidence gathered from the findings suggested a linkage between the trends in CO2 emissions target in vehicle manaufacturing and its impacts on human health and society as whole.

This research outcome provides the importance and understanding of compliance and non compliance with CO2 emissions target set not only for car manufacturers, but also the US government and the americans.
