Every single trip via MTA can save around 10.4 lbs of greenhouse gases. You might think it is not a big number, but actually, it equals to the carbon emissions required to make about 30 disposable coffee cups. And if I take MTA for 2 unique trips per day, I would save 7,592lbs GHG emission savings annually. That’s a lot of coffee cups.
Not all environmental policies are good. Indeed, some are worse than others including some policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions that can have undesirable side effects.
