Integrated climate change mitigation requires active action in most sectors, particularly transport, which is the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States and needs reform.

Fortunately, improvements in technology have led to the development of electric vehicles that produce less than 25% of the greenhouse gas emissions from traditional vehicles, according to a report by the California air resources Council. Continue reading
