Transportation in a Climate-Constrained World


MIT Press





In the nineteenth century, horse transportation consumed vast amounts of
land for hay production, and the intense traffic and ankle-deep manure created
miserable living conditions in urban centers. The introduction of the horseless
carriage solved many of these problems but has created others. Today another
revolution in transportation seems overdue. Transportation consumes two-thirds of
the world's petroleum and has become the largest contributor to global environmental
change. Most of this increase in scale can be attributed to the strong desire for
personal mobility that comes with economic growth. In Transportation in a
Climate-Constrained World, the authors present the first integrated assessment of
the factors affecting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from passenger transportation.
They examine such topics as past and future travel demand; the influence of personal
and business choices on passenger travel's climate impact; technologies and
alternative fuels that may become available to mitigate GHG emissions from passenger
transport; and policies that would promote a more sustainable transportation system.
And most important, taking into account all of these options are taken together,
they consider how to achieve a sustainable transportation system in the next thirty
to fifty years.
