Global Warning: Vehicle Solutions

U.S. passenger vehicles are one of the largest contributors to global warming pollution, responsible for roughly a quarter of annual U.S. energy-related emissions of CO2. Better transportation choices can have an enormous impact on climate change. With our members’ support, UCS spearheads research that finds new and better ways to reduce harmful vehicle emissions.

Global Warming: Energy Solutions

The energy choices we make have an enormous impact. Electricity generated by coal burning power plants is a major source of global warming pollution in the United States. But by reducing how much energy we use through energy-efficient technologies and by displacing dirty fossil fuels with clean electricity sources, we can build a cost-effective and sustainable energy future.

Global Warming: International

Climate change is real and already underway. Although this is a global phenomenon, different regions of the world have their own specific consequences and unique concerns. In the tropics, for instance, plans to curb deforestation must take into account the needs and incentives of local economies. Read More

Global Warming: Southwestern States

Climate change is real and already underway. Although this is a global phenomenon, it has very specific consequences for the different regions, states, cities, and neighborhoods where we live. To help raise awareness about the local impact of global warming and the costs of inaction, UCS has gathered and synthesized regional climate analyses that can help lay the groundwork for effective solutions.

Are You An Energy Efficient Consumer?

The Koshland Science Museum has developed a webquest aimed at middle and high school students which focuses on global climate change. The Global Warming Webquest presents a fictitious scenario in which students play various roles as they try to determine how and why the global climate has changed and what role humans play in causing and responding to these changes.
