Transport accounts for 20% of all greenhouse emissions worldwide, and 50% of this comes from automobiles. Legislation is driving down CO2 emissions for new vehicles, but are the targets and their achievement too little and too late? Prevention of a 20°C rise in temperature requires an 85% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050. Can this be achieved, and what contribution can the automobile make? In his address, Prof Peter White will examine these questions taking into account technical innovation, energy sources, trends in vehicle ownership and socio-economic behaviour.
