Using gasoline and diesel as transport fuel causes emissions of both greenhouse gases, driving climate change, and of other air pollutants that are dangerous to human health and the natural environment. Transportation is the fastest-growing source of human-produced greenhouse gases. To prevent destructive climate change and reduce health impacts, the sector needs to move towards fuels that have a lower carbon footprint, and reduced emissions of sulfur and other conventional pollutants.
