Synopsis

Transport by Rob Bowden

Everyone in the world uses some form of transport almost every day of their lives. We move around for work, school, leisure and pleasure, and forms of transport range from walking and animals to high-speed planes and trains. However, transport is one of the greatest causes of damage to our planet. Carbon-dioxide emissions contribute to climate change, and transport congestion, injuries and deaths affect millions of people every year. This book explains how transport must change and evolve in the future. Many countries and individuals are now choosing to create more sustainable transport: that is, transport that does not cause harm to others or to the environment, both now and in the future. It looks at current developments in transport design and use that could make it more sustainable. It also suggests some choices the reader can make on a local scale to ensure a more sustainable world. 'Databank' boxes give key facts, 'Opinion' panels highlight quotes from well-known speakers on the subject. There are also weblinks with useful website addresses which link to sites with more information about a particular topic.
