After Environment New Mexico and our allies delivered more than 10,000 public comments in support of cleaner cars, the Obama administration announced that fuel-efficiency standards will double by 2025 to a fleetwide average of 54.5 mpg: the single biggest step this country has ever taken to end our addiction to oil and tackle global warming.
Global warming is taking its toll on people and the environment around the world. Here in the U.S., we see more extreme weather like heat waves, droughts, floods, and bad air days because of global warming. We know that to avoid catastrophe and meet the goals of the Paris climate agreement, the US will need to cut overall global warming pollution by more than 80 percent by mid-century.
America has made progress in cutting pollution from cars and trucks over the last decade as a result of improved vehicle fuel economy and slower growth in driving. But eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from our urban transportation systems is going to require more than incremental change – it will require transformation.
Every citizen in New Mexico lives in a county affected recently by weather-related disasters, including wildfires, according to an interactive, online map released today that crunches data from the federal government. Scientists say global warming is already exacerbating some extreme weather events and their impacts.
