Forward Thinking and Backward Practices
Kooris spoke September 17th at a roundtable discussion on transportation and climate change hosted by Yale University's School of Forestry and Environmental Sciences:
"'The transportation planning institution has been focused on cars and highways for so long that the tools that are available to them are not able to answer the questions that face them,' Kooris said. The transportation establishment is being asked to help reduce the negative impact of cars and trucks on the world's climate, but in this era of sophisticated modeling, transportation agencies have fallen flat, he indicated."
"'The problem is data availability,' in Kooris's view. 'It's difficult to get data that is reliable and that answers the questions we are now asking.'"
