U of M study names fuel-efficient cars as best way to fight climate change

ANN ARBOR — Researchers at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute say driving a car that gets better gas mileage is the best way for individuals to combat climate change.

That information comes from a new study that examines how people can contribute to the reduction of five man-made sources of greenhouse gas emissions without substantial time and effort. Findings show that if every American drove 31 mile-per-gallon vehicle, total emissions could be cut by five percent.

Using LED light bulbs and turning down your thermostat by just three degrees were also listed as effective ways to reduce emissions. Click here to read more about the study.
