Global Energy Independence: What it Means for Transportation

For the last 150 years, fossil fuels have been powering the vast majority of the world’s energy. Today, they are responsible for supplying about 80% of energy around the globe.  

We now find ourselves standing at a critical crossroads as a world community. How do we even begin to repair the damage our dependence on fossil fuels has caused? Examining the extreme consequences of our reliance on non-renewable energy and exploring our path forward will take an enormous transition to full decarbonization. 

With a world effort so profound, there is good reason to recognize a day like Global Energy Independence Day. On July 10, commemorating the birthday of engineer and inventor Nikola Tesla, the message of renewable resources and energy independence is spread worldwide.  

It doesn't take an expert to recognize that relying so heavily on fossil fuels cannot continue in any sustainable way. We must evolve the technology that powers our world. The transportation sector is a substantial part of this.

Kicking Fossil Fuels to the Curb: One Small Change at a Time

Did you know that fossil fuels supply around 80% of the world’s energy? Being such an overwhelmingly dominant energy source, fossil fuels were found to be responsible for 89% of global CO2 emissions in 2019.  

With the fossil fuel industry powering so much of our world, it can feel like the standard—like there’s no other way to live. But by making small changes in our daily lives, we can begin to decarbonize our lifestyles for the greater purpose of becoming less dependent on these detrimentally harmful fossil fuels.  

Transportation is a large contributing factor to our carbon footprints. To kick off Earth Month, let’s talk about how we can begin the transition into sustainability in small ways while moving around our world that will lead to a greater impact.
