Whether at the Solar Decathlon, making clever environmental awareness clips or interviewing Darth Vader, young Carrick and his dad Colin have made some fun green transportation videos over the past year or so. The duo returns this week with a look at sustainable transportation in the future. Their new video was made as a submission to the US PIRG video contest, which asks the cloud for better ideas on shaping smarter transit plans. As the US PIRG puts it, "time spent stuck in traffic is time you never get back."

Colin writes:

Our video focuses on systems of mass transit such as personal rapid transit systems and high-speed trains, as well as making cars and trucks more sustainable with electricity. When we were researching for the video we kept coming across strong advocates of public transportation who clearly hated cars and would have them taken all away if they could. I don't believe that it is realistic for any vision of sustainable transportation in the future to leave out cars and trucks - it's unnecessary.

If you'd like to submit your own video, you've still got time. The deadline for entry is July 4. In the meantime, watch Carrick's latest star turn after the jump.
