Our Future Without Cars

by Gietinger, Klaus

Cars claim millions of lives every year, they pollute the air, and they poison our atmosphere. The almighty car industry has us in a tight grip. Driving is addictive, we are the junkies, and the politicians, the corporations, and the media are our cartel promising us more mobility while only bringing us more traffic jams, and more deaths. Klaus Gietinger says the time is ripe. It is time for a hard stop!
