Green Ways of Getting Around: Careers in Transportation
Green Ways of Getting Around moves readers toward careers in “green” transportation, including travel by air, sea, and land, and even in more “extreme” environments, such as outer space and under water. This book explores mass transit and automotive transportation, highlighting fuel-powered vehicles, such as buses, planes, and boats, which carry with them their own pros and cons as being fuel-efficient and ecologically sound.
Also included: using “pedal power,” pedestrian-friendly venues, concepts that promote walkability and sustainable mass transit, and powering transportation with alternative energy sources.
