To reduce carbon emissions, make urban buses fare-free

This is such an obvious step to take. Making urban buses and trams fare-free would reduce car-driving and lower carbon emissions. Why are we not hearing this idea in the major conferences like #COP21?

The answer is simple. Free public transport is a threat to capitalist profits. People will buy fewer cars, and will not be a likely to live in sprawl where they need even more consumer products.

When a politician will not support fare-free buses, you will know right away he is pro-growth and that puts him directly opposed to protection of the biosphere.
