Coffee & Conversation @ Saint James Dexter

Transportation is the biggest source of carbon emissions in the US. What effect do greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles and other sources have on the planet’s climate? What effect will the Trump administration’s rollback of auto mileage standards have on emissions? How can private citizens change behaviors and advocate for policies that help reduce emissions?
