Abstract: A report on the past, present, and future of the automobile industry efforts to control emissions should, ideally, be a record of technological advances to solve persistent engineering problems. Unfortunately, the record cannot be that simple, Efforts to control automobile emissions are hopelessly entwined with problems of increasing costs, government regulations, real and politically induced energy-source problems, and vehicle fuel economy considerations. Im, sure that youve all heard stories about big, bad Detroits unquenchable thirst for profits, or their utter disregard for the health of the people and the preservation of all thats good in our ecological balance. Other myths include the belief that Detroit can do anything immediately-if a law or regulation is adopted and somebody holds Detroits feet to the fire.
