Environmental Impacts of Transportation

In 1990, transportation counted for 45% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the City of Berkeley. Surprisingly, the type of automotive travel that generated the greatest amount of emissions is not the daily commute to work, but the short, non-commute trips.  

Each gallon of gasoline burned creates 20 lbs of CO2 emissions. Find out what your vehicle uses.
