On March 20, 2023, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provided a major update on the state of climate science and ways forward in its synthesis of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). Here’s what the world’s top authority on climate says about climate action and transportation: #1. Climate change is probably humankind’s biggest unfoldingContinue reading “Takeaways from IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report for Transportation”

U.S. Launches Blueprint to Decarbonize Transportation, Mobility First
When the U.S. passed its most important climate legislation ever, the Investment Reduction Act (IRA), it didn’t tackle transportation very squarely. Not in the sense of what climate science authorities, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), say is the path to deep decarbonization, a sequence known as “Avoid-Shift-Improve.” What passing the IRAContinue reading “U.S. Launches Blueprint to Decarbonize Transportation, Mobility First”
Transportation Questions for Climate Action
To bring climate pollution under control, we need to reshape transportation, especially the way we get around on the ground. Namely, we have to evolve from a mono-modal system that is extraordinarily energy-intensive because it requires one tool for almost every job–the private car, typically carrying one person–towards a system that is resource-efficient. No questionContinue reading “Transportation Questions for Climate Action”
Why “More” Mobility?
More Mobility is about the possibility of more from mobility. More freedom and joy in how we get around. A higher standard of care and dignity for the large number of people our transportation system is leaving behind. Both travelers and those living where travelers are moving through. Better shared results between public transportation departmentsContinue reading “Why “More” Mobility?”
Climate Action Requires Mobility-First Transportation Action Says IPCC
Earlier this year, the world’s top authority on climate science, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), gave an update on our best chances to minimize further climate damage and keep humankind as safe as possible.1 Here are some of the conclusions about transportation from the 3000-page report, which deals with every main aspect ofContinue reading “Climate Action Requires Mobility-First Transportation Action Says IPCC”
Welcome to the More Mobility Blog
Welcome to the blog of More Mobility! This space is for policymakers, practitioners, investors, and grant-makers contemplating how to unlock more at the nexus of transportation and climate action. The aim is short, slightly wonky discussion on ideas that inspire More Mobility (see the about page), original More Mobility resources focused on decisions and action,Continue reading “Welcome to the More Mobility Blog”
Pardon the Dust
Hello there. And warning: This is a construction zone. The More Mobility website is under development. New pages and materials are still on their way up, and some material might get reworked. This post will be updated when the cones come down. To be a part of the first newsletter and hear when that happens,Continue reading “Pardon the Dust”
