President Obama’s plan to trim CO2 emissions from the transportation industry is not a total disaster
President Barack Obama is proposing to trim pollution from vehicles by reducing the number of fuel-burning cars on the road and boosting electric cars by 30 percent over the next decade.
The plan, unveiled on Thursday, is the result of a yearlong investigation into the impact of air pollution on health and the economy.
It would reduce vehicle emissions from 20 million cars by 20 million vehicles over the course of the decade and increase electric vehicles by 35 percent.
The plan calls for the elimination of cars from state and local transportation by 2030.
The plan would reduce emissions from all vehicles by 20 percent by 2030, with the goal of reducing emissions by 25 percent by 2035.
The president’s goal is the equivalent of cutting emissions from 100 million cars, but this is far less ambitious than some other proposed cuts.
Obama also said in the plan that his administration would be spending $6 billion to upgrade air quality and water quality standards in the transportation sector by 2030 and invest in air quality monitoring and control systems.
He also said he would work with other states and localities to create a Clean Air Interstate Compact, a national regulatory framework for air quality.
The White House released the plan in response to a petition from the Environmental Working Group, a liberal environmental group, which said that it would reduce air quality, pollution, and other impacts of air quality pollution.
Obama has pledged to reduce emissions in the United States by 25 to 35 percent by 2020.
The Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates the transportation and transportation infrastructure industries, is expected to release a plan in early 2017 to reduce air pollution by up to 25 percent from 2030 through 2035 and boost electric vehicles from 5 percent to 10 percent of all new vehicles by 2030 to help cut carbon emissions.
