Here’s an eye-opening image that I found pretty fascinating. A lot people tend to brush off the solutions to congestion and pollution, but when you make one of those solutions visibly accessible, the result becomes more tangible than you expected.
From the Atlantic’s Andrew Golis:
We continue to lead advanced economies in per-capita carbon emissions, 28 percent of which come from transportation. But even if the crunchy granola argument isn’t good enough to make you see the benefits of public transit, consider that trains, trams, buses, and the like reduces traffic congestion, which is good for the life satisfaction of everybody behind the wheel, since science shows long commutes make us unhappy.
