|Favorite green websites/publications:
||Transportation informative reading- human power, electric, mass transit. Or readings concerning architecture/design Even information on Microcars like mine My city-el EV is yellow colored Microcar, but it is a "green machine". Many magazines- Wired, Motor Trend, Dwell, San Francisco magazine
|Favorite non-profit organization
||Many, but what is most interesting are those based on ecology (Eco Action) and several regarding the 'green' concept or frugality.
|If I could change one thing in the world, it would be:
||People everywhere live and let live! Enough of that country versus country nonsense! Of course that begins with city A getting along with city B.
|I think the most important environmental issue is:
||Overpopulation without planning, and economic concerns- constant urban sprawl in a throw-away nomadic society! I like to grow where I was rooted.
|The greenest thing I do is:
||Pedal my recumbent trikes, or use my Electric Vehicle! Of course; I use many florescent light bulbs, have re-used and re-cycled a LOT for many years- since 1980 or so with 'envelope' housing, "scrub" bicycle motors & huge florescent light bulbs.
|What does "sustainability" mean to me:
||Treading lightly on the earth, not using everything up.
|Why am I passionate about being green?
||Dislike driving now for the most part, although I still drive (doctor/store) a "recycled" disposable car. Using my own power on a trike is an invigorating exercise, and having built that trike gives me special pride! The trike is even a green colour, but my City-el is yellow!
||Artist-bike-mini bike-go kart-cars-motorcycles--cars-limousine-back to cars-"adult" tricycle to scooter then recumbent trikes AND scooter ~~-general education-college-trade school- back to college for architecture (education)~~many jobs working for others, but enjoying my 2nd childhood now! I had eventually opened my own bicycle shop but retired early-maybe I will be an artist someday!
