Is car a ridiculous way to travel? – Today’s CLIDEMY climate poll

Imagine someone tells you that the hand bag you carry will weigh 20 Kgs, while the stuff in it that you carry will weigh max 1 Kg.

You would consider that ridiculous – no one will have a 20 Kg container to carry a 1 Kg item.

But that’s precisely what a billion cars are doing today on the world’s roads. Each transports a human weighing 75 Kg, but a car weighs on average 1.5 tons (1500 Kg) – 20 times the “item” transported.

95% 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐮𝐞𝐥 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐦𝐞𝐝, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 95% 𝐨𝐟 𝐜𝐚𝐫 𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭 𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬, 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐮𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐫𝐮𝐛𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐬, 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐬. Even when 3 people are travelling in a car, this is 85%.

Given the above, don’t you think car is a ridiculous way to travel?
