Abstract:

Transportation is the leading source of global warming emissions in Connecticut and the trips that state residents make to and from work are a major contributor to the problem. Driving Global Warming documents the impact of commuting on global warming emissions in Connecticut, identifies towns whose commuters produce the greatest emissions, and suggests policy solutions that can reduce the region's contribution to global warming.
