Climate Impacts


Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment, Volume 103, February 2022

Efficiency, consistency and sufficiency as complementary strategies for sustainable mobility.
Transport emissions play a large role in climate change. Unfortunately, measures to address this risk creating inequalities in access to mobility. This article proposes policy recommendations to reconcile these two problems.
Towns and cities worldwide emit significant pollution and are also increasingly affected by pollution's health and climate impacts. Local decision makers can alleviate these impacts by transitioning the energy they control to 100% clean, renewable energy and energy efficiency. This study develops roadmaps to transition 53 towns and cities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico to 100% wind, water, and sunlight (WWS) in all energy sectors by no later than 2050, with at least 80% by 2030.
