Favorite green websites/publications:

Any with discussion on mass transit / transportation, underground or earth berm architecture, efficiency (small) home design, wheelchair accessibility.

Favorite non-profit organization

Ecology Action comes to mind and many similar; but I do not have a list.

If I could change one thing in the world, it would be:

Having everyone in all countries drop the ''war machine" mindset. A segment on 60 Minutes TV show discussing Brazil shows that this IS possible.

I think the most important environmental issue is:

personal home and environment; with use of local transportation (micro-cars, electric vehicles, bicycles, tricycles, scooters).

The greenest thing I do is:

I rode an old recumbent trike-based velomobile kit from 2003 to 2011. I rode many recumbent trikes since 1980 and currently ride an electric scooter. I sold my three different size recumbent trikes this year.

What does "sustainability" mean to me:

sticking to it ; same old same old (hint- I began riding a trike in 1976 and a recumbent trike in 1980).

Why am I passionate about being green?

I am old enough to see so many things vanish or become unbearable for intended use.

About Me

Humorous (usually enjoy things others do NOT!). I am physically disabled (and have a wheelchair to prove it), I have been disabled since 1971 @ 19 years old (yes; a damn car). I lived 19 years and went though school as a "normal walking and talking person" before disabilities. It seems like I lived 2 completely different lives. Double the fun!
