Chapter 8 - Transport, Energy and Environment
Transportation systems are linked with a wide range of environmental
considerations at all geographical scales, from the global to the
local. The nature of these environmental impacts is related
to the transport modes themselves, their energy supply systems, their
emissions and the infrastructures over which they operate. While consuming
large quantities of energy, especially oil, vehicles also emits numerous
pollutants such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and noise and transport
infrastructures have damaged many ecological systems. Several of the environmental
impacts of transport systems have been externalized, implying that the
benefits of mobility are realized by a few while the costs are assumed
by the whole society. The spatial structure of economics activities,
notably their land use, is also increasingly linked with environmental
impacts. The sustainability of transport systems has become one core
issue in the provision of mobility.
