The efficient movement of people is crucial for any society.In many parts of the world, mobility is a matter of life and death; it is dirty, unsafe and chaotic.Companies around the world are making bold predictions that electric mobility is the future of transportation.For starters, consumers must overcome the belief that zero-emission mobility is only for wealthy people in developed countries. Every year, 6.5 million people die from polluted air, and 92 percent of the world's population lives in places where the air is unsafe to breathe. Investing in electric mobility and infrastructure – including electrified public transportation, charging stations, and electric car-sharing programs – will help, not hurt, development.I have been fortunate to experience firsthand what electric mobility feels like, and how it is superior to gasoline- and diesel-only cars.Governments and consumer groups everywhere must work together to put more people behind the wheel of these inspiring vehicles.Others in Latin America are finding their own ways to promote electric mobility.Just like the CEO of Shell, I, too, believe that the transition to electric mobility is inevitable.
The latest climate science must mobilize us, not paralyze us
