In the wake of various conflicts and disasters like oil spills, wars, and weather events, oil prices have skyrocketed, underscoring how important it is to transition to alternative energy sources and modes of transit.

On a personal and local level, investing in and choosing low-emission solutions for public transportation, improving walking and biking infrastructure, our everyday reliance on oil and gas will decrease and allow for greater self-sufficiency and savings. Flying less and supporting the transition to 100% sustainable aviation fuel, carpooling more, and grouping errands can be done now. Some other proposed methods to reduce our dependency also include slowing rates of motorization, funding innovation, and providing safe routes and infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians.

To influence systemic change both individuals and corporations can advocate for all cargo and shipping industries to become carbon neutral quickly as an important structural goal. Air, sea, and land transit of goods and services all have key options available to make this shift. Such transitions would benefit both the environment and help guarantee a more resilient way for the economy to continue, thus protecting the quality of life for all in years to come.
