September 22 is World Car-Free Day 20.9.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Brent Patterson This Saturday September 22 is World Car-Free Day. That's a day when people in cities around the world opt to walk, cycle or take public transit rather than driving a car. In 2016, about 1,500 cities in 40 countries took part in the day. John Vidal writes in The Guardian, "This weekend, as part of World Car-Free Day, London will close 50 major streets to traffic, and Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Glasgow, Cardiff, Oxford, Cambridge and Liverpool will also ban cars from parts of their city centres." The City of Ottawa does not appear to be officially marking the day, but Critical Mass cyclists will be self-organizing with this local event . Cars, trucks and buses fuelled by gasoline are a major contributor to air pollution. The U.S.-based Union of Concerned Scientists has noted: "Passenger vehicles are a major pollution contributor, producing significant amounts of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and other pollution. In 2013, transportation contributed more than half of the carbon monoxide ...

Auto Alliance Pushed Climate Denial to Get Trump Admin to Abandon Obama Fuel Efficiency Standards 8.4.2018 Truthout.com
(Photo: LanaElcova / Shutterstock) The Trump administration  officially announced Monday that it will scrap fuel economy and emissions targets  for cars and light-duty trucks sold in the United States and set new weaker standards, effectively undermining one of the federal government's most effective policies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. As  the New York Times  and  the Los Angeles Times  anticipated late last week, the two agencies responsible for auto standards -- the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) -- both claimed that their internal reviews have found the Obama-era standards to be too strict, and that the agencies would go back to the drawing board to revise standards for model years 2022-2025.  The weaker standards, expected to be revealed in coming months and reported to be well below the  current targets of 54.5 miles per gallon  (or roughly 35 miles per gallon in real-world driving conditions), will be celebrated as a ...
