Climate change has fully entered the public consciousness, but what to do and how fast to do it remains intensely controversial. Questions about how to mold transportation policy to help achieve climate goals were the focus of the Asilomar conference hosted by the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies in July 2009. Two hundred leaders and experts were assembled from the automotive and energy industries, start-up technology companies, public interest groups, academia, national energy laboratories in the United States, and governments from around the world. Three broad strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions were investigated: reducing vehicle travel, improving vehicle efficiency, and reducing the carbon content of fuels. This book examines strategies, technologies, and policies to reduce GHGs and oil use. The book is aimed at researchers, policymakers, and students interested in the future of energy and transportation.
