Active Transportation_Climate Change InfographicBy biking, walking, and rolling you are improving your physical and mental health and addressing one of the biggest contributors to climate change – emissions from transportation. 

Greenhouse gas emissions contribute to our changing climate, resulting in increasing temperatures and extreme weather.

Climate change impacts our health, causing and exacerbating heart and lung diseases like asthma and COPD and increasing cases of heat stress and heat stroke among other health impacts.
