Former presidential candidate and mayor of South Bend, IN, Pete Buttigieg, can use The Transportation Department to fight climate change if confirmed as Transportation secretary, according to The New York Times

Americans’ reliance on gasoline-fueled vehicles to get around each day account for one-third of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. 

Pete Buttigieg can:

  • Rethink transportation grants by providing $1 billion in competitive grants to help states and cities fund green transportation projects.
  • Require states to track greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Mandate the use of vehicles that use less gasoline.
  • Help with public transportation throughout the United States. 
  • Urge lawmakers to pass new laws.
