You don’t have to be an expert or a car owner to get involved in the exhaust pipe debate – from the way your parcels are delivered to how you get around, we’re all using a transport system which is hurting our planet. The solution? Electrifying transportation, especially fleets. On this episode of TEDxLondon’s Climate Curious podcast electrification advocate and TED speaker Monica Araya breaks down how we can shift to an emissions-free world, in an equitable way. She joins hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst to debunk the different energy sources that power our vehicles, explain why EVs are so much more than a Tesla, and highlight the cities leading the way to eliminate these exhaust pipe polluters. Having spent her career campaigning for clean air across the world, Monica is optimistic for where we’ll be in ten years; “the sound of the city will be different”. This week’s Climate Confessions? Taking flights just for the loyalty points, hybrid Ubers, and being unable to resist buying that new shirt.
