    • Abstract:
      The magnitude of climate change beyond the next few decades depends primarily on the quantity of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions humans produce globally. Achieving substantial reductions in GHG emissions is possible, but will require widespread utilization of low-carbon energy, improvements in energy efficiency, and conservation measures that reduce demand for energy. Transportation agencies can help develop climate solutions by implementing measures to limit growth in vehicle miles traveled, improving the efficiency of operations and promoting infrastructure to support low carbon vehicles and fuels. The U.S. has pledged to reduce GHG emissions 26-28 percent by 2025 and 80 percent or more by 2050. These emissions reductions are consistent with scientific targets for stabilizing atmospheric concentrations of CO2 at 450 parts per million. The transportation sector is a significant source of U.S. GHG emissions, and will need to achieve major reductions to support national climate commitments.
