Since it was linked to Tokyo by a railway line in 1872, the small fishing port of Yokohama has been growing continuously; today it is Japan’s main international port and second-biggest city after the capital. The freeways that encircle it symbolize a type of economic development largely built around road transport, as in many industrialized countries. This dominant model has led to an increase in freeways all over the world. The number of vehicles has risen to 826 million, of which 552 million are concentrated in the United States, in Canada, in Japan and in Western Europe. 27,6 percent are in the United States alone. With 2.3 billion people, China and India only posses 39.2 million, or 5 percent. Despite the pollution and congestion in cities, the number of cars continues to grow relentlessly. The density of cars is also poorly distributed: there are 481 vehicles per 1,000 inhabitants in the United States, but just six in India Transport is the chief emitter of greenhouse gases, and the sheer number of users renders the measures for controlling it complex. Although emissions from industry have fallen since the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, emissions from transport have risen by 75 percent.
