Transportation is now the largest source of climate-busting greenhouse gas emissions in America. The federal government does have important tools available to reduce these emissions. One such tool — the MAP-21 pollution rule — requires federal transportation planners to measure the climate change impact of transportation projects, and to plan to reduce emissions.
But as part of the Trump administration’s broader attack on climate action and clean energy, the U.S. Department of Transportation is now trying to weaken the rule.
Help NRDC defend action against climate pollution from transit. Tell the DOT you support MAP-21’s strong requirements to measure — and reduce — climate pollution from transportation. DOT comments are due by midnight on Monday, Nov. 6, so please act fast.
