Your thinking for the environment

Our world is more connected than ever before. Modern transportation has effectively made our world smaller and more accessible. However, these amazing transportation achievements are also a serious drag on our planet, even as we enter a new age of electrification. We may never be able to fully reverse the damage done in our lifetimes, but we can make changes to slow climate change by rethinking our transportation choices and how we retire our vehicles.
