After the unveiling of the Model 3, then after the IPCC climate report, there have been a rash of articles asking if electric cars can essentially save the world. The consensus seems to be that if powered mostly by renewable energy, then they might save us from cooking the planet.
We severely disagree.
Electric micromobility’s massive global impact: Unlike newer, car dependent cites, much of the emerging world gets around on scooters and motorcycles. Their electrification will have massive impact on pollution and carbon emissions.
Designed to fly: From its corrosion resistant/eye-catching paint to an electric motor/batteries, how JUMP’s bike design put it on the map.
We had an incredible weekend at ReCharge/Culver City Art Walk and Roll!
Thank you to the Culver City Arts District BID for organizing and inviting us!!! 🎉🎶🖼🥙🌯🍺🚲🛴⚡️
Thank you to our sponsors Micro Kickboard and LA CoMotion 💚💚💚
Advocates of scooters (such as Have A Go) tout the many, many benefits of micromobility. One of these benefits is their tiny carbon footprint.
As scooters proliferate, some are beginning to question just how carbon free they are when fleet management is taken into consideration.
“Better the devil you know.”
It feel like more than ever, we seem to prefer the hell of today rather than entertain even slightest bit of change.
In Los Angeles, where our streets are near infernos, references to hell are unfortunately more than mere exaggeration…
