112: How Micromobility Can Save The World

In celebration of Earth Day 2021, Oliver interviews Horace about his latest project - looking at the carbon emissions in the transport sector and modelling the pathways for the current options. You can probably imagine where they get to, but they don’t want to spoil the show.

This is still a work in progress, and they are putting this out as a primer so that folks may understand the narrative arc, and the background/context of why Horace is looking at this.

Specifically they look at:

- The math of emissions, and why transport is hard

- The lifecycles of vehicles and why the shift to electric cars will take a long time

- The ‘gap’ that exists between existing emissions reduction plans and reality

- Where micromobility might contribute

Also, the next Micromobility America conference is now scheduled for the 23rd of September. It’ll be in Pier 70 in San Francisco and have more than 50 top speakers from the industry, more than 1000 global participants and 500ish startups and brands represented.
