Question of the Month: Climate and Transportation

In October 2018, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a special report detailing likely catastrophic impacts of an additional 0.5-degree Celsius increase in global temperatures. Scientific studies indicate the world is on track to see this increase in temperature much sooner than we thought.

Likely impacts include increased droughts and severe storms, more frequent and more severe wildfires, and loss of habitat and species—some of which are already being seen across the world and in our local community.

To avoid these impacts, communities need to quickly take urgent, large-scale action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Boulder’s current climate goal is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80 percent or more by 2050. Transportation accounts for about 28 percent of Boulder’s current GHGs.

Given this information, and taking into account other transportation goals such as safety and efficiency of the system, how important is it to you to accelerate the city’s efforts to reduce the number of gas-powered cars on the road and increase use of walking, biking and transit through programs such as electrifying vehicles and buses, enhanced regional transit, free and expanded local transit and expanded paid parking?
