Earth Week -- Cool Your Commute
Original post made by going green, Evergreen Park, on Apr 19, 2008
Consumption of fossil fuels for transportation accounts for approximately 45% of our communityâ€™s greenhouse gas emissions. Taking the pledge for a greener Palo Alto suggests those who live or work in this city reduce their contribution to these emissions by choosing to walk, bike, take public transit or carpool more often.
Each driver who reduces the number of miles driven by ten miles a week also avoids generating 450 lbs per year of greenhouse gases (assuming 25 mpg). For more information on calculating CO2 emissions from auto travel, go to www.cool-it.us
