What is the biggest question faced by the human race?
“What can possibly motivate
people around the world
to want to do what must be done?”
The US is capable of providing a global solution for containing carbon dioxide emission with a “drivers wanted” solution.
Two measures would have come to play:
- To convince the upper crust population of China and the US to put their money where their mouthes are and drive no emission Tesla Motors’ no emission Model S, because it is available now and time is of the essence.
- Lit Motors to recalculate the positioning of their Cargo Scooter with a potential of 150 million sold by 2015.
In just a decade, the e-bike population in China will go from near zero to more than 150 million by 2015 – the largest adoption of an alternative fuel vehicle in the history of motorisation.Source: The Guardian.

Honestly now, Google’s driverless car technology won’t do what needs be done to contain the carbon dioxide emission, instead it will create plenty of harm to the work force.
Lit Motors Cargo Scooter Kubo will. With an affordable drivers wanted solution for countries the likes of China or India, where cargo is being moved around by bike, barrow and motor scooter. If I’d asked people what they wanted, they would have asked for a better horse
