A new study found that while nearly 90 percent of the vehicles on the road today are either “sustainable” or “green,” a little over 20 percent are actually worse off than they were a few years ago.
The new findings were published in the peer-reviewed journal Global Change Biology.
The researchers analyzed data from more than 1,600 drivers around the world and tracked how they drove and where they lived.
The findings show that the average driver has a 2.7 percent crash risk, up from 1.9 percent a few decades ago.
While many factors are responsible for driving fatalities, the researchers found that people are driving more slowly and that people in poorer neighborhoods are less likely to drive than those in better neighborhoods.
The study also found that those in poorer urban areas are at higher risk of crashes and that higher levels of pollution, air quality, and other air-quality issues have a greater impact on health and the environment.
“This is a sobering and sobering reminder that climate change is having a profound impact on the health of our cities and on the people who live in them,” said study author and associate professor of geography at the University of Michigan David Cote.
“There are a number of ways we can mitigate the impact of climate change, but one of the most important ways is to get our cities built with the right infrastructure and to make sure people are protected from the adverse effects of climate disruption.”
The researchers found a dramatic decline in car ownership in the United States.
From 2003 to 2015, car ownership declined by about 6 million vehicles.
But, according to the researchers, this drop was driven by two factors: the introduction of more fuel-efficient vehicles and the growing affordability of electric vehicles.
The researchers note that more than 40 percent of U.S. car ownership has been driven by electric vehicles since the early 1990s.
In cities like Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco, people drive an average of 9,000 miles each year on their electric vehicles and that figure is expected to increase to nearly 25,000 by 2035.
As the cost of electric vehicle ownership continues to increase, there is an increased need for electric vehicle charging stations.
For example, the average U.K. driver charges their electric vehicle at a charging station five times a week.
Other countries are also trying to figure out how to address climate change and environmental problems.
In 2016, the United Kingdom announced that it would build new roads, bridges, and tunnels that will reduce the carbon footprint of travel by 40 percent by 2050.
China is also trying its best to tackle climate change.
Last year, the country installed more than 4,500 solar farms to meet the needs of the nation’s expanding solar power sector.
China’s government is also building the world’s largest carbon capture and storage facility.
The plant, which will capture up to 100 tons of CO2 from every kilowatt hour of electricity generated, is slated to be completed by 2021.
It’s not just people in wealthy countries who are paying more attention to climate change in recent years.
For instance, in 2017, the cost per gallon of gasoline in the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Paris increased to $1.50.
Some of the world is also preparing for the consequences of climate action.
In the United Arab Emirates, the first ever solar farm was inaugurated in 2017 and solar panels are now installed on the roof of the Emirates State House in Abu Dhabi.
In Japan, the government is working to create more solar power plants and has a plan to create 1,200 megawatts of renewable energy by 2020.
And in France, the French government announced in March that the country would invest an additional $1 billion to develop green energy.
