The Global Warming and Climate Change Committee held a hearing on the climate impact of the transportation sector this week. The presentations were useful and read well as standalone documents.
Here are links to the three presentations:
- DEP overview of the Global Warming Solutions Act planning process
- DOT overview of transportation emissions sources
- MAPC geographic perspective on transportation emissions sources
The Transportation Sector is the largest contributor of carbon dioxide in Massachusetts and also the sector that our legislative activity in the last session does least to address. The series of hearings will continue towards the end of framing additional legislation for the the 2011-2 session.
