Go green and carpooling

Go green and Carpooling

We all know that carbon emission is major cause of Global warming. Needless to say it again and again – Vehicles produces major part of greenhouse gases that affects our eco-system drastically.
With the ever rising cost of fuel, a sluggish economy, and the dangerous greenhouse gases and pollutants that vehicles produce, the need to implement economic and eco-friendly alternatives like carpooling has become a vital necessity. Increasing traffic and pollution are real threat to all cosmopolitan and metros in India. Lack of infrastructure and outburst population migrating to cities is the cause for this increasing traffic. It takes hours to reach office because of traffic jams. All major Indian cities are polluted by vehicles. Road dust, due to vehicles, contributes 33% of air pollution in India. Population in cities like Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad, Ahmadabad etc are growing exponentially and so is the number of vehicles. All these cities has potential health hazards and can cause asthma, breathing problems to commuters. Especially children can get affected quickly.

Everyone is shouting to control the traffic congestion? What are the solutions then?

  • Better infrastructure – throwing the ball on government’s court
  • Increase the city limits – creating ring roads, flyovers, bridges, etc., (this will decrease the momentum of urbanization & over-crowding at one particular place. (eg. Gurgaon in Delhi / NCR. Indra Nagar in Bangalore, Adyar in Chennai, Hi-Tech City (Madhapur) in Hyderabad)
  • Traffic sense – OMG, is this going to happen? Are we going to drive with a sixth sense? It’s better to forget this option.
  • Carpooling – Sharing the ride with others. Instead of 1 or 2 riding a car which has the capacity of 4-8, commuters can share a car and can make a carpool if they are going in the same route to their workplace.

On all the above discussed points, only Carpooling is in our hand. We can control the traffic congestion only by carpooling. All the other options are dominated by Govt’s action plan.

Unless we act now, our children will inherit a hotter world, dirtier air and water, more severe floods and droughts, and more wildfires. So lets join our hands together to fight against global warming and reduce our carbon footprint. Lets-pool-in…
