New Lung Association Study Shows $142 Billion Benefit of Converting to Zero-Emission Vehicles by 2030
Date:3/20/2008

e total cost to public health and society of the existing motor

vehicle fleet is over $10 billion in 2010, and this cost only drops to

approximately $7 billion over the 20-year timeframe of the study with

normal fleet turnover.

-- The existing motor vehicle fleet generates health costs in terms of

hospitalizations, premature deaths and illnesses that add up to over

$7.4 billion per year (2010), including $4.4 billion per year linked to

one pollutant, nitrogen oxide (NOx).

-- The total greenhouse gas (well-to-wheel) emissions from the existing

motor vehicle fleet are 150 million tons per year, and drop only to 140

million tons per year in 2030 through existing programs and vehicle

turnover. This is far from the total reduction that is needed to meet

California's greenhouse gas reduction goals.

"ZEVs are the road to healthier air and a sustainable transportation future," said Holmes-Gen, "and the American Lung Association of California is looking to the California Air Resources Board to make the vision of zero pollution transportation a reality."

About the Study

TIAX LLC -- a contractor that also worked with the California Energy Com
