Putting the Brakes on Climate Change : A policy report on road transport and climate change

Putting the Brakes on Climate Change : A policy report on road transport and climate change Road vehicles currently account for 22 per cent of all UK carbon dioxide emissions, the main greenhouse gas responsible for the human contribution to climate change. Although increased fuel efficiency has offset the increase in traffic, it is unlikely that it will keep pace with this growth. The government should start to develop for introducing congestion charging on a wider basis. By Julie Foley of the Institute for Public Policy Research.

How Does Britain Score? Transport A Policy Exchange scorecard on transport shows that travelling, both by car and tube, is more expensive in the UK than in any other industrialised country... Automobiles, despite being a costly way to travel, are still Brits' most preferred mode. This affinity for cars may also explain why the number of Brits who choose walking as a means of travel is so low compared to our European counterparts. On the good side though, the vehicle fatality rate in the UK is the lowest of the countries surveyed.

The Sky's the Limit: policies for sustainable aviation The number of people flying from UK airports is forecast to almost treble by 2030, while air freight is growing at an even faster rate. The economic and social benefits of growth in aviation must be weighed against the environmental costs, including noise, air pollution and climate change. Unconstrained growth in aviation may also increase regional economic inequalities as well as the development pressure in the south east, while extracting jobs from other regions.
