Photo by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder, text by Craig Welch | Between the photo booths and the pretzel stands, not far from the electric violin player and the man who molds busts of tourists out of clay, sits the world’s first solar-powered ferris wheel. The Santa Monica Pier is the place where America’s Mother Road—Route 66—meets the Pacific, a fixture of the Los Angeles region, which is the cultural soul of our autocentric nation. But L.A. County, like the rest of the planet, is paying a price for our global dependence on fossil fuels. Following seven years of drought, visitors here last November could stare up into the hills and watch the menacing glow of the region’s most destructive wildfire as it forced the evacuation of a quarter million people. Just 18 miles north, Malibu’s Broad Beach is no longer so, as rising seas and storms bring this ever narrowing sandy reach right to back porches. Increasing heat threatens the health of many southern CA residents. So this seemed like the perfect place to start an epic journey, a road trip toward the unknown. We are crisscrossing the country in a series of electric cars, trying to examine our progress toward a cleaner energy future. Can we make this transition? Of course we can—if we truly make the effort. But what will it take, how are we doing, and how do we get there? Follow along as we attempt to find out. #roadtripto2070
