Cities are some of the most carbon-consuming places in the world. Their size and immense population ( Tokyo has a population of 39 million! ) means that carbon footprints climb quickly. However, some cities have started to get greener.
Cities take up so much carbon that it's kind of a no brainer to reduce their emissions. In 2015 Seoul, the capital of South Korea, produced 276.1 metric tons of CO2. That's enough to boil 3944285 kettles! Transporting some of that energy into sustainable equivalents would mean saving masses of CO2.
On the other hand, cities have already established good and stable connections with national grids. Changing this would throw public transport into brief disarray, which would affect millions of people, as some wouldn't be able to go to work. It's a good idea to slowly shift to green energies, but is it good to do it immediately.
So, what do you think? Yes or no? Why or why not?
