Clean, accessible transportation– we all depend on it!
September 25, 2020
Terea Macomber, Electric Vehicle Director, Grid Alternatives, and Woody Hastings, Energy Program Manager, The Climate Center discussed the challenges and opportunities in securing equitable, clean, and climate-safe transportation policies and infrastructure, with moderator, CEO Ellie Cohen. With transportation the single largest measured source of greenhouse gases in California, a rapid transition to greenhouse gas-free, equitable mobility is a key goal of The Climate Center’s Climate-Safe California campaign. Terea and Woody shared their expertise about the fundamental need for clean reliable transportation- from public transport to personal vehicles and bikes—to ensure a functional society, how transportation policies have often been used to marginalize lower-income communities and communities of color, and how, working together, we can secure accessible, clean transportation for everyone.
