Californians Must Cut Driving by 1.6 Miles Per Day to Meet State Climate Change Goals
A new study by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) and UC Berkeley finds that Californian’s must cut their driving by 1.6 miles per day in order for the state to meet its climate change goals by 2030. The report suggests that California needs billions of dollars in new funding for housing and transportation improvements and suggests that people should turn to telecommuting, carpooling, biking or taking transit. In order to reach the 1.6 miles figure, the reports assumes that the state will also substantially boost the number of electric cars on the road. CLICK HERE for an outline of the report.
