As we (supposedly) suffer from the effects of climate change here in North Carolina, way out on the left coast there are brave people (supposedly) working to alleviate the effects of said climate change. And the electric buses are running on time, but they’re–shall we say–somewhat under capacity:
Mayor Alan Webber of Santa Fe, N.M., tried to do his part, but he did it alone. On the full-size electric bus with its flashing digital sign proclaiming “zero emissions,” Mr. Webber was the lone passenger on the one-and-a-half-mile shuttle from the Fairmont Hotel to the main conference location at the Moscone Center, a route that often had few riders.
“It’s important to send the right signals, to do the right thing,” Mr. Webber said.
Hey–who has time to wait on a bus when there’s a world to change?
