This paper discusses how the internationalized economic crisis and the increasing levels of pollution can both be addressed through the massive introduction of fuel efficient engines, which generate a reduced dependency on oil, decreasing prices and demands for gasoline, but also lower levels in terms of air pollutant emissions.

Introduction and Thesis Statement
In Favor of Fuel Efficient Engines

From the Paper:

"The main problem of the contemporaneous environmentalists is the protection of the natural habitats in the face of global warming. The processes sees the gradual increase in global temperatures, with multiple effects, including the melting of the glaciers, the increasing levels of seas and oceans, the extinction of species or structural modifications in seasons and animal and plant composition and geographic disparity. All these represent the direct effects of vast amounts of greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere. The number one generator of greenhouse gases within the United States is the coal-burning industry, followed closely by the automobile industry, which releases an annual 1.5 billion carbon dioxide (United States Environmental Protection Agency).
