New Book Says Cars Are The Future

A review of the new book, Two Billion Cars: Driving Towards Sustainability, which argues that cleaner cars are the future of transportation and barely mentions bicycling, walking or transit.

Reviewer John Calimente is critical of the book:

"Two Billion Cars is another book I've read recently that does a good job of presenting the problems we are facing in auto-dependent North America. Where it goes off the rails - ahem - is in presenting cleaner cars as the only solution. But honestly, I didn't have very high hopes for a book with a foreword written by Arnold Schwarzenegger."
