"How can you get to the point where people are actually not moving around as much and reducing their carbon footprint in various ways? The main way we're planning on doing that is decarbonizing the economy. This means electrifying a lot of things. People still are moving around. They're now using electric cars, but they're still using cars. How can you build new cities that don't require that in quite the same way? And maybe we've got some visions as to the sort of things that might happen or should happen during the pandemic when people suddenly couldn't travel, or they were in lockdown, and they had to work from home. Increasingly people have been able to work from home. This was something I advocated a long time ago when I was working at NCAR is that we needed to develop better ways of going to a seminar without driving eight miles across town to a building where that was actually happening."
