Why do we need world-class transit in San Diego? Climate.

Everything we do at Climate Action Campaign is in service of our mission to stop the climate crisis.

That’s why, on May 13, we’re dropping a white paper which addresses the question, why does San Diego need world-class transit? The answer is climate. Here’s what we found:

  1. Transportation accounts for more greenhouse gas emissions than any other sector in the region by a long shot. 42%, to be exact.

  2. Cornerstones of our existing public transit network, like the LOSSAN corridor, are not ready for climate impacts, like sea level rise.

  3. There is a pervasive belief that electric vehicles alone will save us. This is not truewe are in a climate emergency, and we cannot achieve climate goals fast enough without also reducing vehicle miles travelled.

The most devastating impacts of the climate crisisextreme heat, wildfires, flooding, and moreimpact low-income communities and communities of color first and worst. Slashing emissions from transportation is key to achieving climate justice.
