A lot has to change - especially in cities. People need to be able to get around, better public transportation is a start - and better pathways for cyclists. I bought a Prius last year. It's the only thing I actually own (well, the bank still owns it) - but, it's one of the best investments I ever made. We have to make change on just about every level of our existence. Currently, I live in a place where I have to drive.
I have made many choices based on sustainability - including tubal ligation (zero population growth). However, I am in a relationship with a man who has a child. The child in my life has split custody - there is no leaving AZ for now - and there is a lot of driving to and from school, to and from therapies (special needs kid), to and from work, to and from parents. It's just the way it is.
In the meantime, many of us are doing the best we can. If people who aren't completely aware are buying Priuses and driving the shit out of them, it's better than doing nothing.
Thanks for directing this movie, Nick.
So right on with this article. I wondered what the YA did as well. After years of teaching, I finally signed up because I couldn't get certain work without it.
Beginning to think a competitive alternative alliance that uses your suggestions as an outline for its mission may be the way to go - if YA doesn't act.
