Letter to Editor: Reduce Carbon
Letters to the Editor • firstname.lastname@example.org • December 9, 2010
We need a plan that will provide transportation choices for all Floridians while reducing our oil dependence and greenhouse gas pollution from transportation in both the short and long term.
In 2008, Florida’s Energy and Climate Action Plan outlined how to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from transportation. Any transportation plan going forward should be in line with those recommendations.
Prioritize public transit and provide appropriate infrastructure for pedestrians, cyclists and public transportation riders in the next few years.
Carpooling, cycling, walking or using public transportation should be a viable option to all members of our communities. Availability of these resources will enhance our counties and reduce our carbon footprint.
