Carbon Emissions from Cars and Trucks Increasing, Act Now

EPA-DC.jpgUnless action is taken to address greenhouse gas emissions from cars and trucks in our region, we will never meet our 2050 regional climate change goal of reducing all greenhouse gas emissions by 80% below the 2005 levels.

Please contact the Metropolitan Washington Transportation Planning Board by Saturday April 12, and urge them to address climate change in their long-range transportation plan.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As you review the 2014 Constrained Long Range Plan (CLRP), I urge you to fully account for the forecasted climate change impact, and commit to immediate action to align our transportation plan with the region's climate change goals.



The Washington Region should be a leader in addressing climate change and our transportation emissions. Please don't wait for the federal government to require action, act now.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
