The auto apocalypse is here and cars are going extinct
There are few technological innovations that have changed the human landscape more than cars. From the earliest steam- and petroleum-fueled automobiles to the first fully electric Tesla, cars have changed the way we work, travel, and move around the globe. But this ubiquitous technology is on the way out. Innovations in how we communicate, shop, and work online are changing our interactions with the automobile industry. Fears about the climate are compounding this interaction, motivating us to allocate our attention toward alternative means of travel. Our future, in other words, might be car free.
