"Three Revolutions is a bold attempt to weave together the latest global developments in transportation, drawing on research in a variety of topics ranging from technology to economics to urban planning. Sperling and his colleagues make targeted recommendations for policy that can guide the new automated, electric, shared vehicles toward a bright future, while also sounding a clear warning about how these developments could actually make pollution, inequality, and congestion worse."--Mary Nichols, Chair, California Air Resources Board
"Three Revolutions is essential reading for anyone interested in how technology and mobility will shape our communities and our lives. This extremely timely book helps to inform the various decisions we need to make as these new technologies emerge. In Sacramento, we are implementing some of the innovative ideas in this book in an effort to lighten our environmental footprint and become a technology leader. Our cities need to define their own destiny as new opportunities emerge. This book shows us how."--Darrell Steinberg, Mayor of Sacramento, California
"Dan Sperling understands the mix of business, policy, and markets necessary for the transformational changes that will lead us to a greener future. He and his coauthors expertly show the importance of electrification and shared rides as global cities transition to automated vehicle technology."--Stella Li, President of BYD Motors Inc.
"Three Revolutions is a must-read for anyone who cares about guiding our cities to a safer climate future. A technological revolution alone will not get us there. This thoughtful book shows us how to drive policy change at the federal, state, and local level that will advance the three revolutions of electrification, automation, and pooling together While America waits for the return of strong federal leadership, we can and must make continue to make progress at all levels of government."--Roland Hwang, Director of the Energy and Transportation Program at Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
"As Executive Director of the Transportation Research Board, I have an appreciation of the depth and quality of policy analysis and research that Dan Sperling and the other coauthors of Three Revolutions have contributed to this issue. They have clearly articulated and analyzed the choices we have in front of us and assessed the potential positive or negative consequences that might occur based on the policy choices that get made, or not made. These choices can make the difference between whether we have a safer, more sustainable, healthier, more livable, more equitable, and more economically viable future, or one where we are lamenting the negative consequences of the technological changes that have occurred. Three Revolutions gives us the insights needed to help make the wise policy choices."--Neil Pedersen, Executive Director, Transportation Research Board
"Highly readable and engaging."--EEnergy Informer Newsletter
