This is the first of an Outrage + Optimism investigative series on The Future of Transport. Today our cars, planes, trains and ships cause nearly 30% of carbon pollution. We think the pioneering spirit that got these industries underway needs to be reinvigorated to get transportation fit for a low carbon future.
This first episode tackles The Future of Flight. COVID-19 has dealt the airline industry a devastating blow. Airline revenues have been decimated, passenger numbers are down by 70% and hundreds of thousands of people have or will lose jobs.
Can this moment of darkness invigorate a sustainable future for airlines? Are there sustainable solutions ready now? And what does the future hold? Tom Rivett-Carnac leads this mission to find out what opportunities the new aviation pioneers have in store to accelerate the sustainability of airlines and propel us into the Future of Flight.
