Thought of the Day: Are Electric Cars Enough?

Welcome to Thought of the Day! Join Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield as she poses a question for you all to think about and answer.

Today, prompted by watching Before the Flood last night, Nikki asks if driving zero emission electric cars charged by renewable energy is enough when it comes to lowering our carbon footprint — or if we should be working harder to rethink our carbon footprint and travel footprint. Should we be bicycling or walking more, for example? And what would that look like in the real world?

Watch the video above, and leave your thoughts in the Comments below.
