As part of its efforts to increase fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions from transportation, the Province of Ontario plans to double the amount of ethanol in gasoline by 2020. On CBC’s Here and Now, The Atmospheric Fund CEO Julia Langer explains why this policy change could turn out to be a useful step in tackling Ontario’s emissions and help achieve our TransformTO climate goals.
