- General Overview

Every day, all over the world people are travelling. People travel to work and school, to visit their friends and family and to see new places and new countries. Farmed and manufactured products are also constantly being transported from one place to another everywhere. There are lots of different modes of transport that are used to transport people and goods to places around the world - cars, lorries, buses, trains, aeroplanes, coaches, boats, ships, bicycles and our feet! Forms of transport that are powered by petrol or diesel can cause pollution because they produce carbon dioxide when they are burnt by the engines of the cars, buses, or lorries. Some buses and trains are powered by electricity which produces less pollution than petrol and diesel.

Understanding the link between our transport choices and decisions in the UK and global warming and climate change is essential in facing up to our responsibility towards the majority of people who live in the countries of the South.
