According to the article ” CSM Worldwide: Election Year Promises Will Meet Automakers' Harsh Reality”, at present, both of two president candidates want to provide finance to vehicle producers and look for new energy for environment protection. However, they use the different way to solve this kind of problems. In Obama’s plan, he tries to make an improvement of energy and allocate funds for the development of new energy and new vehicles, because Obama wants to though this improvement, change the currently energy problem. Battery will instead of fuel can be come true under this change, in order to save oil and protect the global environment. Now, some car producers have already response Obama’s call, and Obama use both 'carrot and stick' to improve it as soon as possible. In addition, from McCain’s plain, he wants to force cars producers and increase fines, in order to make them follow the limit of cars’ displacement, especially some big car producers. Also, McCain provide a big prize to encourage following this limit. He thought that should be a good way to solve the problem, instead of providing loan for producers to develop new kinds of vehicles.
Since America president Obama claimed auto emissions, more and more people and countries keep their eyes on this issue. America is considered to be one of the strongest nations in the world. As a more developed country, if US become the leader of this behavior, it must have good influence on other countries. At first, many Americans agreed with Obama, but Obama decided to put huge amount money to make the policy work. This caused people objected his decision and just went the opposite way. They thought the government can do this by law or make a strick publishment, not costing so much money. In my opinion, I still think that this we can get more benefits than disadvantages of this policy.
Firstly, this kind of investment cannot just be measured by money. If people want to make the policy affective, it must cost money. No matter how much it cost, I think it is worthy. It is said that the global warming is becoming worse and worse, it will cost not only money if we still don't do anything for the environment.
Secondly, it can protect the environment. Air pollution is closely related to our daily life. Some countries that don't pay any attention to the environment have suffered from nature disasters every year. In some cases, auto emissions can protect the environment.
In addition, it contributes to the constant renewal of automobile technology. According to media sources, the plan by the United States welcomed the automotive industry. It allows car manufacturers no longer in production because of different state standards and at a loss, and leave the car manufacturers is relatively ample time to adapt to the new standards. However, this plan will make U.S. consumers purchase new cars each cost an average of 1300 U.S. dollars
In conclusion, the restrictions on vehicle exhaust emissions to ensure clean air, reducing the funds to deal with gas, but also improve the way of creating new cars.I want to stand up for supporting is policy.
