Drive less. The fact is that we’re going to have to change our travel habits. More walking, cycling, tram, bus and train, less car and plane. We might eventually end up using electric cars for some things, but electric vehicles require a huge amount of energy to build (ie carbon emissions) and rare and increasingly expensive resources for their batteries (like cobalt which principally comes from under the threatened tropical forests of the politically unstable Democratic Republic of Congo). So simply to replace all our internal combustion engine cars with electric ones is not the solution. So let’s start taking steps towards greener ways of getting around.
