Sea Change Radio

The indus­tri­al rev­o­lu­tion ush­ered in an era of more effi­cient trans­porta­tion. As his­to­ry has shown us, the impact of our abil­i­ty to move eas­i­ly across town and across the plan­et is com­plex. It has made the world small­er but it has also giv­en rise to the cli­mate cri­sis. This week on Sea Change Radio we speak to TreeHugger‘s Lloyd Alter about inno­va­tions in the trans­porta­tion space. First, we look at one of the clean­est, old­est and best forms of mod­ern trans­port: the bicy­cle. We look at the lat­est designs in e‑bikes, dis­cuss whether or not they will come down in price and become more ubiq­ui­tous, and exam­ine the gen­der gap in cycling. Then we talk about the threat that cheap flights and boom­ing rid­er­ship pose for the plan­et, and the future of self-dri­ving cars and ride-sharing.
