Here is the scientific explanation of why we need to get rid of the automobile if we want to continue to live on this planet.

While I agree to what you say, I wonder what remedial or alternative measures can be adopted to tide over the problem.

You will find the answer to your question when you start reading articles and books about ‘new mobility concepts’. The technical solutions have been available for quite a while but it takes several generations to get rid of the car addiction.

I love riding my e-bike. No petrol needed at all, just a bit of electricity to charge the battery.

Hi Natalia,

It is true. I don’t know if you like cycling, but an e-bike gives you all the benefits of keeping yourself in terrific shape. You have to make the movements, but if there’s a strong wind, you won’t even feel it. I even bought some rain clothing and I usually reach 25 kilometers an hour when riding and I don’t even have to take a break.
