Hi everyone and welcome "In A Perfect World". In a Perfect World we're all perfect human beings who always set the planet's needs over our own. Well, besides when we find it to be too much work to do so. My name is Julie ...
... and with my are my two perfect co-hosts Derek and Lisa.
We're here to talk about all the things we know we should be doing if we want to save the planet. How we're supposed to stop eating meat, stop flying, stop buying clothes and really just stop breathing in order to reduce the CO2 we're letting out.
Today we're going to talk about transport. Because we all know that cars and planes are some of the planet's worst enemies. And I know that in a perfect world I should sell my car in favour for a bike and public transport.
Well, I live 6 km from work. So either I'd have to take a bus, but that would definitely take way more time. I could buy myself a bike, but then I'd meet in here all sweaty and smelly - and you'll be the ones suffering under that.
What is holding you back, Derek?
We do appreciate your consideration. And even though the smell of sweat does seem like a small sacrifice for a better planet, it surely is an unpleasent one. So I'm not really sure whether it is worth it or not.
And that's even without considering the dangers of riding a bike in the Sydney traffic. And how my hair will look after wearing a helmet.
We decided to find out if it's really so bad to be climate friendly when it comes to transport. Julie, you won and got to take the car. Lisa, you jumped on the bus and I borrowed my brothers bike to test, what's the fastet way through Sydney.
I know, just imagine having to fit this hair under one. But that's why it is so hard to live climate friendly, there's always a more convenient and comfortable way.
