Transportation, Land Use, and the Climate Connection
In one of their latest action pieces, Transportation 4 America has posted a particularly insightful and well-researched policy brief examining the link between transportation and greenhouse gas emissions. The brief focuses on an important, yet often overlooked, piece of the overall solution to reduce carbon dioxide emissions: policies that provide transit options. Since the population is projected to keep growing, vehicle ownership is likewise expected to grow. Useful policies that promote smarter transportation choices will help curb the amount of vehicles on the already-congested roadways. Check out the policy brief here, and feel free to post your reactions to the findings and recommendations below.
