Did you know that the single largest source of global warming pollution in America is from our cars and trucks.There’s no two ways about it: If we’re going to turn the tide on climate change, we need to tackle transportation — and clean, electric vehicles are a big piece of that puzzle.
That’s why we need to push for our state to join the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) program. By requiring manufacturers to offer and sell more electric vehicles to consumers in Washington, the ZEV Program will help address our biggest source of carbon emissions and air pollution: gasoline cars.
We can’t keep using gasoline without further damaging public health and the world we are passing on to our children. The ZEV Program is a common-sense, low-cost, consumer-friendly measure to move us away from gasoline and toward a sustainable, carbon-neutral future.
And the climate crisis has never been more serious — there’s no time to waste if we’re going to avoid the worst impacts of global warming. Our ambitions must match the problems of our time, beginning with our answers to carbon pollution from transportation. From Environment Washington
