On February 24, Axios' Joann Muller hosted a virtual event on the transportation sector and the travel industry's focus on sustainability and eco-friendly transit featuring United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby and General Motors Chief Sustainability Officer Dane Parker.

Scott Kirby unpacked the green future of air travel, highlighting scalable sustainability approaches like carbon sequestration. He shared his expectations for the airline industry's return to normal, and the impact of effective vaccine rollout and government response.

  • On how the airline industry can get to carbon neutral: "Carbon sequestration is the only solution that is fully scalable. We're doing a lot with sustainable fuels, for example, but you run into a limit of getting feedstock for sustainable fuels."
  • On his projections for when people will feel confident traveling again: "I have real confidence in the long term that by this time next year we'll be back towards a world where people feel safe traveling again."

Dane Parker unpacked GM's intent to completely phase out gasoline-powered cars and trucks, as well as how the government can employ policies to support the industry in its sustainability efforts.

  • On reaching an inflection point around electric vehicle adopotion: "There's an alignment of the technology and the maturity of the technology, the understanding of customers and the willingness of customers to embrace something new, and the understanding and support of policymakers around the world."

Axios CEO and co-founder Jim VandeHei hosted a View from the Top segment with Uber SVP of Mobility & Business Operations Andrew Macdonald and discussed sustainability in ride-share, focusing on electric vehicles and creating an equitable electric charging infrastructure.

  • "When you think about where chargers tend to be in cities today, often those are wealthier neighborhoods, office buildings, etc. When we look at our driver base, they live all over cities and they often live in areas that are underserved by some traditional services. And so we want to make sure that drivers have access to charging and that it's not just in wealthier areas."

Thank you Uber for sponsoring this event.

Americans increasingly see China as an enemy

One in three Americans, and a majority of Republicans, now view China as an enemy of the United States, according to a new survey from Pew Research Center.

By the numbers: Just 9% of Americans consider China a "partner," while 55% see Beijing as a "competitor" and 34% as an "enemy."

Fresh internal documents from the Department of Health and Human Services show how quickly the number of child migrants crossing the border is overwhelming the administration's stretched resources.

Driving the news: In the week ending March 1, the Border Patrol referred to HHS custody an average of 321 children per day, according to documents obtained by Axios. That's up from a weekly average of 203 in late January and early February — and just 47 per day during the first week of January.

Mounting emissions data paints bleak picture on Paris climate goals

Researchers keep finding new ways to reveal that nations are together showing very few signs of getting on track to meet the Paris Agreement's goals.

One big question: That's whether a spate of recent analyses to that effect, and scientific reports coming later this year, will move the needle on meaningful new policies (not just targets).
