Former Vice President Al Gore and former Mexican President Felipe Calderon are pushing for $90 trillion in spending to ban cars from every major city in the world and make them more dense.
Gore and Calderon presented a report from the Global Commission on the Economy & Climate (GCEC) and argued that fighting global warming will require making cities more compact and wholly reliant on public transit. This is the only way to make sure urban areas don’t contribute to global warming, the two politicians argued.
Calderon and Gore argued that $90 trillion is going to be spent anyways in the coming decades upgrading cities around the world. They argue that it should be spent on making cities more climate friendly.

Are you trying to tell me there's a sane reason for having several thousand lb personal transportation vehicles that on average have seaing for 4-7 people, yet are 90%+ of the time occupied by a single inhabitant.
You think that's sane?
There's absolutely no reason for personal transportation vehicles in the 21st century. Public transportation makes sense on every level imaginable.
