Green Code must address transportation sector, too
Buffalo’s plan to redevelop itself under the Green Code is a fantastic idea that will allow the city to grow in a more sustainable manner. Coupled with this improved housing, there should be improved transportation.
We need to clean up our transportation sector, the new largest source of global warming pollution. We can do this through supporting new efficiency standards for cars and accelerating our transition to 100 percent clean cars.
Only through addressing this huge source of emissions can we avert the worst effects of climate change, such as deadly heat waves and more bad air days. We need to make sure we’re doing everything we can to protect our health and safety.
