London Strong-Arms Drivers To Go Electric

Some big, crowded cities like New York and London have tried to reduce traffic jams and air pollution with congestion fees that make it expensive to bring your car downtown.

Eric Roston, Bloomberg’s sustainability editor, joins this episode to explain why electric cars are such a big deal in tackling air pollution–and what a tall challenge it will be to make the switch on a large scale. And Feargus O’Sullivan, a contributing writer at Bloomberg CityLab, talks about what London is doing, and why other cities are watching.

    The part where he mentions that he wants to be adopted by a more functional family even at 45 yrs really hits home. Really delineates how no matter how old and independent you are, you still need love and support.
