Has the time come to get rid of Storrow Drive? The Climate Minute

The pandemic, climate change, and mass transit planning all come together to allow new ideas about the future. A recent opinion piece in Commonwealth Magazine proposes that the City of Boston turn Storrow Drive into a clean energy mobility corridor. In many ways, doing so would cut the Gordian Knot of Boston traffic. We talk to the author, and find out why this is the moment to act.

The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.

Thanks for listening.
