Presented by The Conversation

U-M research professor emeritus John DeCicco authors an article featured in The Conversation discussing transportation’s contribution to global warming, focusing on the Biden administration’s executive order regarding climate and the environment. DeCicco highlights electric vehicles and their role in cutting carbon emissions and how many states are implementing “clean-car strategies,” though data hasn’t proved CO2 reductions due to popular demand for fuel-consumptive SUVs and pick-ups. The faculty expert delves into the role of clean-car standards as well as legal obligation by automakers in terms of making electric vehicles more convenient to charge and purchase.
