Driving Down Emissions: Transportation, land use, and climate change
Driving Down Emissions … The urgency of the climate crisis demands it.
With transportation accounting for the largest share of carbon emissions in the U.S., we will never achieve ambitious climate targets or create more livable and equitable communities if we don’t find ways to allow people to get around outside of a car—or provide more housing in places where that’s already an option. A new report from Smart Growth America, Driving Down Emissions, shows how we can reach those targets while building a more just and equitable society.
Join Smart Growth America on October 28th for a short online discussion about what’s in Driving Down Emissions. They will walk through the report briefly and have a conversation with our partners at Move Minnesota about how one state has had some successes, what policy barriers still exist in Minnesota—and the limitations of electric vehicles.
