Abstract

This pieces introduces the papers brought together in this specialsection of Journal of Transport Geography. It explores some of the difficulties of decarbonising transport and argues that the social sciences, including human geography and its many sub-disciplines, can make important contributions to understanding the links between climatechange, energy use and transport. Some research priorities for social scientists interested in these issues are outlined, and reflections are offered on how the social sciences can make further contributions to the thinking about transport’s decarbonisation.
