ANALYZING THE EFFECTS OF TRANSPORTATION
ON THE ENVIRONMENT
In Massachusetts, transportation consists of 43% of greenhouse gas emissions. To better understand why transportation contributes to almost half of MA’s GHGs, I used ArcGIS to analyze whether or not the residents of West Roxbury use public transportation. However, due to West Roxbury’s distance from the city center, many techniques have not been implemented, but remain only in planning. With the increasing danger of global warming, there is an urgency to reduce GHG emissions.
