The Energy Information Administration today released CO2 emissions numbers through 2016. While I could rant about the 21.4% increase in GHG emissions in Florida since 1990, as compared to the 23.7% decrease in Massachusetts over the same period, when Florida faces even great climate risk than Massachusetts, I won’t do that.
Today’s rant is about transportation GHG emissions. While there’s a lot of fun data in the EIA report, I’ll keep this short. Since 1990, electric generation sector emissions in Massachusetts have declined by 58% — that’s not a typo. Over the same period, transportation sector emissions have increased by 10%. Transportation Climate Initiative, you’ve got your work cut out for you.
