  • Reflection Question
    Transport Test Drive an Electric Bike
    Half of all trips made in the US are three miles or less; 72% of them are driven. Private vehicles account for 60% of trips of a mile or less. Do you often drive short distances instead of biking or walking? If so, how might incorporating an electric bike into your lifestyle help you make more climate-friendly choices?

    IT will help because it doesn't release greenhouse gases into the environment. Also it's more fun.

    My challenges are going well.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Composting
    Producing food that goes uneaten squanders many resources—seeds, water, energy, land, fertilizer, hours of labor, financial capital. Which of these kinds of waste most motivates you to change your behavior regarding food waste? Why?

    Wasting food is not good because there is other people that need it. When you waste food you create greenhouse gases because the trucks need to drive it to the dump, and if there is less trash, there is less greenhouse gases being release.

    Planting trees makes better air in the world. It is good for your health because it helps the air in the world, and doesn't release greenhouse gases.

  • Reflection Question
    Transport Use Public Transit
    How has your access to various kinds of transporation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    yes, i think that public transportation is a good idea because people don't release greenhouse gases by driving their own vehicles. If there is less vehicles being used, there is less waste.
