Transportation is the largest contributor to climate change in the US according to the EPA, accounting for around 28% of greenhouse gas emissions. Since 1990, transportation has also seen the highest absolute growth in emissions as compared with any other cause, and that trend looks primed to continue: freight transport is expected to double by 2040, with freight emissions easily overtaking those from passenger transportation by 2050.
