Why is Bill Ford talking about the environment?

16 Jan

The answer: Ford (Executive Chairman of Ford Motor Company) is looking for ways to keep our freedom to move around while we reduce the emissions of CO2 and spend less time in traffic.  An increase in population means having more cars on the streets and more traffic. And while people can switch to electric cars in an effort to cut the CO2 emissions, that alone does not help with the other issue – the traffic! In this TED talk, Bill Ford (yes, his great-grandfather was that Ford) talks about possible solutions like building smart streets, smart parking, smart cars and smart public transportation. We would like to add biking and walking as a way to reduce the number of cars on the road.

It’s a fascinating way to think about the future of our mobility while also thinking about sustainability!
