Transport accounts for 26% of global CO2 emissions and is one of the few industrial sectors where emissions are still growing. There is a need to consider adaptation so that society is resilient to the future impacts of climate change on our networks, and a holistic framework for research and investment is required to improve the relationship between transport and climate change. This highly topical volume covers the intersection between transport and climate change. It begins with a comprehensive introduction with definitions of transport and climate change, including mitigation a adaptation, as well as sustainability. It then proceeds to examine the relationship between transport and climate change in two parts. In Part A the role of transport modes at varying spatial dimensions is considered. A range of perspectives on the relationship between transport and climate change are provided in Part B including economic, behavioural, social, policy, time and technological perspectives. Many of the contributions are from the 'Transport a Climate Change' session of the RGS-IBG conference in London, September 2010, co-chaired by the two editors, Dr Tim Ryley and Dr Lee Chapman.The vast majority are powered by a common technology and power source: the four stroke cycle engine, fuelled by petrol or diesel. ... and affective emotions (a sense of freedom, the thrill of driving, perceived success and enjoyment) (Anable aamp; Gatersleben, 2005). ... 1966-), closely followed by the VW Golf (25 million, 1974 -), VW Beetle (22 million, 1938-), Ford Model T (16.5 million, 1908a€“1927) ...
