Some days, it feels like we spend most of our time in cars— commuting to and from work, running errands, driving carpools, taking a road trip, you name it. While this may be great for some car karaoke, hitting the road comes at a steep environmental price. Cars are a major contributor to global climate change, emitting roughly 20 pounds of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere for each gallon of gasoline burned. In fact, cars, motorcycles, and trucks account for nearly 1/5th of all U.S. CO2 emissions.

All of the talk about the “Green New Deal” and what that means, what it encompasses, and what it would take to achieve its vision, even if the specific strategies remain to be fully defined, has gotten us to thinking about where the Blue Economy fits into this conversation, and this concept of re-framing our economy in more sustainable ways.
