"I saw ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ and ‘Who Killed the Electric Car’ back to back in the summer of 2006. Those movies blew my mind. Right then and there I made a personal commitment to do my part in the fight against global warming.," says Frank Minero, President of UrbanScooters.com, "…then I started thinking about a way to help people get around their local neighborhoods in a not so gassy way. Badabing Badaboom the Marketplace was born."
The EPA estimates that Americans hop in their cars 900 million times a day. Half of the time these trips are less than five miles and by solo drivers! So, whether you're motivated by global warming and the environment, saving money or national security, leaving your car behind when traveling locally makes a huge impact.
Money Saving: While gas prices have recently dipped, supply and demand ensure it’s only a matter of time before $5.00+ gas is once again an unfortunate reality.
Global Warming (aka Climate Change): Diminishing resources, disease, famine, drought, erratic and destructive weather patterns, and rising sea levels threaten mass human migration, suffering, and death. Eco-systems changing faster than animal populations can adapt is expected to result in mass animal extinctions this century.
National Security: If unchecked, a Pentagon funded report warned, warming could lead to resource wars, environmental refugees and failed states in already vulnerable regions of the world.
