Former Vice President Al Gore and Mexican President Felipe Calderon proposed a $90 trillion plan to redesign every city on earth so that motor vehicles would become obsolete due to more dense populations.
Gore and Calderon announced the proposal with colleagues from The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate at the annual World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland Wednesday, Business Insider reported. The conference – attended by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world – runs from Wednesday through Saturday.
Entitled Better Growth Better Climate, the report’s objective is to combat climate change. “The world is now experiencing a new, different type of urbanization,” according to the introduction.
Calderon said these new, redesigned cities would not include the integration of automobiles, but rather more mass transit.
