1/No climate plan is credible w/o a meaningful plan to reduce driving.

Electric vehicles aren’t enough.

We must invest in transit & reform land use to allow more housing near transit & jobs.

Bottom line: We gotta make it easier for people to drive less. huffpost.com/entry/the-demo…
2/“US needs to electrify its vehicle fleet & significantly reduce driving by 2030 to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius. In CA, even a tenfold increase in electric vehicle sales would still require residents to drive 25% fewer miles each yr to reach emissions targets.”
3/To be clear, this transition to a society where people drive less can’t just be about *demanding* that people drive less. We have to make it *possible* for people to do so. That means massive investment in transit, accompanied by significant density increases by jobs & transit.
