Pod of the Planet Ep.3: Transport for the People



Pod of the Planet Ep.3: Transport for the People

Why bad decisions?
Cars, carbon, pollution, death.
Pathways must change now.

—Jacqueline Klopp, co-director of Columbia’s Center for Sustainable Urban Development, and an affiliate of the Data Science Institute.

Jason Smerdon and Kyu Lee talk about travel, transportation and how the current coronavirus pandemic is affecting their lives. Then an interview with Professor Jacqueline Klopp on how travel early in her life affected her career. Also she talks about “Digital Matatus” — her work in Nairobi, Kenya to develop a map system for local transit. Last, Phebe Pierson helps answer one of our most commonly received You Asked questions: “Do individual actions on climate matter?”
