Gas prices are climbing amidst the Ukrainian War and subsequent sanctions. Many in America are bemoaning the higher prices, but our administration wouldn’t be. The higher the gas prices, the more motorist conservation measures (driving slower, inflating tires properly, bicycling, walking…) will be taken. Global warming gasses will decrease in kind, with new and better habits being developed in motorists. What’s more, this will make the country a lot more receptive to the sweeping change we promote in our position paper on transportation.
