Climate Solutions for Transportation Sector


A short reading from ‘Project Drawdown’ that discusses climate solutions for the Transportation Sector. It lists different solutions by the Transportation sector towards addressing the climate crisis such as:

  1. Shift to alternative modes of mobility to reduce demand for fossil-fueled transportation
  2. Enhance efficiency through mechanical improvements and better design
  3. Electrify vehicles by pairing them with renewable electric generation

This reading includes specific solutions from each sub-sector within the transportation sector. These solutions are based on adaptation scenarios, financial models, and are integrated with other solutions. They also include discussions related to each sub-sector. Climate solutions for the transportation sector included in the reading are:

  1. Bicycle Infrastructure
  2. Carpooling
  3. Efficient Aviation
  4. Efficient Ocean Shipping
  5. Efficient Trucks
  6. Electric Bicycles
  7. Electric Cars
  8. Electric Trains
  9. High Speed Rail
  10. Hybrid Cars
  11. Public Transit
  12. Telepresence
  13. Walkable Cities

Students will learn about climate solutions from the transportation sector and sub-sectors.
