Adoption is growing in “record numbers”
By Mark Boada, Executive Editor
A study by a clean energy consulting firm has found that there is no significant loss of performance when surveyed commercial fleets convert from diesel and gasoline to most alternative sources of energy.
The 141-page report, published last month by the California consulting firm of Gladstone, Neandross & Associates, also asserts that the use of alternative fuels by fleets of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles is “at a critical inflection point where…adoption is expanding from the gradual uptake in niche applications over the past several decades to faster and broader adoption within the last few years.
The report, entitled “The State of Sustainable Fleets 2020,” says that although diesel and gasoline are likely to remain as the dominant choice of commercial fleets for some time, “fleets are now testing and purchasing sustainable vehicle technologies in record numbers.”
While extreme weather is a part of the natural cycle, the recent uptick in the ferocity and frequency of these extremes, scientists say, is evidence of an acceleration of climate impacts, some of which were underestimated by climate computer models.
But many scientists believe that there is more at play contributing to this extreme weather than simply the direct effects of warming and drying. One of those mechanisms is the indirect impacts of global warming on the most influential weather-maker on day-to-day conditions: the jet stream.
"While the extent of the ongoing fire siege is beyond what most have seen in the West, the alignment of ingredients for such fire seasons is becoming more favorable as a result of climate change and land-use practices," Dr. John Abatzoglou, climate professor at the University of California Merced said. "We should expect, adapt, and prepare for similar years moving forward."
