Climate Hour: Green Transportation Re-Imagined

The electrification of transportation is well underway.  Electric cars, trucks, and trains are increasingly common and electric commuter flights are in the air.  With carbon-emission issues being addressed, people are starting to ask tougher questions.  How much transportation do we really need?  How does transportation impact civil rights?  Are there better ways to live?  For instance, do we need to commute to work?  What does the city of the near future look like?  How do we re-imagine transportation?
