Reducing transportation emissions is one of the most vital steps in fighting the global warming that now threatens the Earth’s ecosystem, its most populous habitats and the food supply of our entire planet. Transportation depends almost entirely on fossil fuels, and transportation vehicles are the number one cause of climate-changing emissions in Canada and the United States.
Magnovate provides a multi-faceted solution to reducing transportation emissions
"The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them."
– Albert Einstein
What's the problem with personal vehicles?
Personal vehicles account for roughly two-thirds of transportation-related emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of carbon dioxide and other global-warming gases for every gallon of gas. About five pounds comes from the extraction, production, and delivery of the fuel, while most of the heat-trapping emissions—more than 19 pounds per gallon—comes right out of a car’s tailpipe.
What's the problem with flying?
Flights are energy-intensive and are a substantial contributor to global warming. Emissions from flights are released directly into the atmosphere, triggering chemical reactions and atmospheric effects that heat the planet for several centuries. If the aviation industry were a country, it would place sixth in emissions. It is responsible for 12 percent of transportation emissions.
Magnovate's sustainability advantage
Magnovate provides a multi-faceted solution to the reduction of hazardous emissions by offering high-speed, on-demand, vehicles that use no fossil fuels and emit zero pollutants.
Electric vehicles are propelled by a silent, frictionless and highly energy efficient powertrain that can run on any source of renewable energy. Solar panels mounted on stations or above the guideways can supply much of the system’s day-to-day power requirements.
High-speed networks have the potential to offset substantial emissions by taking over a large share of present vehicular transport for urban, commuter and regional travel, including air transport, and encourage the development of auto-free communities that have a lower carbon footprint.
Convenient on-demand, non-stop service entices more people to abandoned their cars in favor of transit. By offering faster travel times than aircrafts for trips under 600 miles, Magnovate networks can eliminate the emissions from most regional flights.
