Resources – Greening your transportation

We’re being told the climate is heating up and that we’ll all fry, sea level will rise, and other major cataclysmic changes will happen to the world around us.  We’re also being told our cars (and other transportation) is a large part of the problem, and that we must switch to cleaner cars and transportation choices.  If we don’t, the planet is toast and our grandchildren won’t have a place to live.  Those may sound like extreme statements, and while I did play it up a bit, the actual predictions from climate scientists are dire.  The question is, how can we as individuals make effective changes and collectively change enough of the transportation system to avert these problems?
