Book Review David A. Hensher and Kenneth J. Button (eds.) Handbook of Transport and the Environment
Nowadays, any transport policy which does not account for its environmental implications should be considered inappropriate. Therefore any decision making regarding the transport system must reflect and consider the likely environmental consequences it might have. Moreover, many changes to the transport system are nowadays proposed not to improve transport operation but to reduce its environmental impact. In these settings, the Handbook of Transport and the Environment brings together the up-to-date knowledge we have on the interrelationship between transport and the environment. The word Environment is used here in its broader sense although naturally the focus is more on the core problems of climate change and air pollution.
