At the COP 21 Paris Climate Summit 194 nations made commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These Commitments show progress but fall short of the reducing 2-degree Celsius goal. To meet our commitments, the US must address its growing transportation emissions or we will seriously undercut the progress of all other climate actions. What should be the priorities?

This session qualifies for .75 CM credits.
