Global warming is the most important challenge of our time. If we continue on our current course, we will see more dangerous heat waves, deadlier storms and increasing public health issues due to degraded air quality.
One of the quickest ways we can take action on the climate crisis is to reduce the pollution we generate from our transportation system, now the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, both in Connecticut and in our country. By switching to more sustainable modes of transportation, like electric vehicles, public transit and bicycling, we can create a livable future for our kids and for generations to come.
