Five Concrete Steps Toward a Climate-Smart and Fair Transport Sector in Stockholm

The climate threat is the most fatal problem humanity has ever faced.

In 2009, the current Kyoto protocol will be replaced with a new international climate agreement, a process in which the EU must be one of the main drivers.
