Playing Catch-Up: CALSTART’s John Boesel on Fuel Efficiency Standards

We often hear about efforts to raise the fuel efficiency standards for our nation’s fleet of automobiles but what’s being done to make our trucks and buses burn less gas? This week’s guest on Sea Change Radio, is doing something to help tackle this problem. John Boesel is the CEO of CALSTART, a non-profit organization that’s trying to help ┬ádevelop and implement clean, more efficient transportation solutions by advocating for more progressive policies. Boesel and host Alex Wise discuss the barriers to change fuel efficiency standards over the past thirty years, the progress that’s been made over the past four years, what hurdles lie ahead and what lessons we can learn from similar efforts in other countries.
