Electric vehicles stand to pack a punch where Georgia pollutes the most. According to Drawdown Georgia, an initiative road mapping solutions to climate change, the transportation sector has the highest emissions out of any sector nationwide, statewide and in Chatham and Bryan counties. In 2020, Georgia emitted 98.3 metric tons of carbon emissions according to federal government data collected by Drawdown Georgia.
Blair Beasley is the director of climate strategies for the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, which helps fund Drawdown Georgia. Before working in this role, Beasley worked for years in Washington, D.C. with the Energy Project at the Bipartisan Policy Center, drafting policy solutions to reduce carbon emissions.
"Drawdown Georgia is really focused on solutions. So we don't want to just point out the problem but also help people plug into how they can be part of the solution," Beasley said.
