climate change

This week, international climate negotiators gathered in Geneva, Switzerland for the first in a series of negotiating sessions to establish an international climate agreement in Paris at the end of 2015.

Following is a statement from Jennifer Morgan, Global Director, Climate Program, World Resources Institute:

A WRI study shows new bus rapid transit (BRT) projects in Mexico, Colombia, China, India, and South Africa have the potential to reduce GHG emissions by 31.4 million tons over the next 20 years. This amount is equivalent to the annual emissions of more than 6.5 million cars.
