Transporation accounts for twenty-eight percent of our current energy usage. This is primarily in the form of oil/petroleum products such as gasoline and diesel fuel. The use of such oil products adversely contributes to carbon emissions, and thus global warming. It also accounts for the primary sources of smog. As such, to design a more sustainable future requires us to rethink our current methods of transportation and new, improved methods to reduce air pollution and energy usage.
