Public health is at the forefront of many people's minds right now, just as it was 50 years ago on the first Earth Day. Back then, leaded gasoline burned from wildly inefficient cars was accepted as the cost of doing business. Thankfully, Earth Day 1970 arose, giving a voice to a growing urgency to take actions that protected our planet. That moment is not unlike today, when youth leaders are rising to demand we take action on climate change.
Transportation is the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., with light-duty vehicles accounting for the majority of those. Drive Electric Earth Day highlights the need to transition from gasoline-fueled vehicles to clean transportation, including plug-in electric vehicles, in order to reduce the effects of climate change and protect public health.
Mark your calendar on Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22 at 2pm ET/11am PT for this entertaining and informative event!
