||Santa Cruz, CA. (75 miles south of my birthplace: San Francisco, CA.)
|Forum Post Count:
||1 week, 6 days ago
|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.
||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!
