Transportation accounts for more greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions than any other sector – 29% of all GHGs in the United States come from people and goods traveling from point A to point B. It is tempting to think that most of these come from large trucks, planes, etc. but fully 59% of the emissions created by transportation come from light duty vehicles, the vehicles we own that make much of our lives possible. In fact, SUVs alone account for more carbon emissions than trucking and aviation.
The good news is that there are many choices we can all make that help reduce these emissions. Choosing to walk or bike when possible are the best options. Taking the bus is also very beneficial. And finally, if driving is your preferred mode of travel, there are a great number of things you can do to reduce the carbon footprint of your travel.
