gdlogoTuesday, August 19th - Transportation: I, You, We Get Around

 

Transportation (with buildings and food) is one of our three heaviest impacts on ecological footprint: it uses 28% of total U.S. energy. Daily, we and our things (e.g., groceries, work materials) travel between home, work, school, stores, entertainment venues, etc. Over 86% of U.S. passenger miles per year are by automobile and light truck, averaging only 18-25 mpg and 1.55 persons per vehicle. An average one-way commute for U.S. workers is 25 minutes. Produce in the U.S. travels an average of 1,300-2,000 miles from farm to fork. About 97% of energy consumed for transportation is fossil fuels, which causes pollution (e.g., nitrous oxides, particulate matter, smog) and 27% of greenhouse gas emissions. However, there are more environmentally responsible means to get from Points A to B, quickly, safely, and affordably. Join us for some hydration as we go for a spin on the topic of moving us and our stuff.
