Hawaii Commits To 100% Renewable Roads By 2045

By

Hawaii has announced a new commitment to sustainable living technology, declaring that the state will transform both private and public transportation to completely renewable fuel sources by 2045. Hōkūleʻa, the Polynesian Voyaging Society, hosted the state's four mayors from the City and County of Honolulu, Maui County, Hawaiʻi County and Kauaʻi County aboard a canoe in mid-December. There they signed proclamations declaring their goal.

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell, Maui County Mayor Alan Arakawa, Kauaʻi County Mayor Bernard P. Carvalho Jr. and Hawaiʻi County Managing Director Wil Okabe (representing Mayor Harry Kim) met with Master Navigator Nainoa Thompson in Pōkaʻī Bay. Hōkūleʻa has special significance in regards to transportation. 

Fast Company reports that the voyaging canoe made a highly publicized trip in June of 2017, using only traditional navigation tools to make their way around the world. The choice of location was a symbolic gesture to Hawaii's history.
