Planes, trains, and automobiles! But, make it sustainable. This week's 1-Minute Climate Snippet revolves around how we can reinvent our traditional transportation systems.
Planes, trains, and automobiles! But, make it sustainable.
With the current landscape, the majority of our transportation methods rely on diesel, gasoline, and jet fuels. According to Project Drawdown, the transportation sector accounts for roughly 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions each year.
The challenges in this sector are threefold — it’s key to find alternative forms of mobility (hey MicroMobility), improve efficiency, and electrify.
By reducing the demand for fossil-fuel-based transportation, we can alleviate emissions, save money, reduce pollution, and improve living conditions.
Companies like Culdesac, EVgo, Flock Freight, ChargePoint, Bolt Mobility, Alstom, Neste, and many more are making these goals far more achievable.
On Tuesday, the IPCC's Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) was released, representing the most comprehensive scientific evaluation of climate change.
In response to a changing climate, we must create technologies and infrastructure improvements that are designed to mitigate and/or withstand the effects.
