37 million of vehicles in France today, 80% of drivers are travelling alone. Carpooling is a practice which reduces the number of cars on highways. The first consequence is the reduction of pollution and the emission of greenhouse gas emissions. This also allows the reduction of consumption of non renewable energy such as oil.
The bus is the mode of transportation less polluting among those who use the fuel. A bus emits when it is half full, 40g CO2 per passenger kilometer. In urban areas, each bus is 40 to 50 fewer cars on our roads. The bus is the perfect choice to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and contribute to improving air quality and environment.
A tram is planned in Tours in 2013. Powered by electricity, it’s an ecological and a quiet transport because, unlike cars which emit carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide consumption of gasoline, the tram does not dismiss gas or smoke, and do not pollute.
For all these reasons, I think we should disturbed our routine to bequeath a beautiful earth for the next generations.
