    OK, I pledge to complete EdX (on-line MOOC) Climate Change -  The Science by completing assignment (two papers).  This is a superb course!

    Just before the Challenge I joined Chicago Council for Global Affairs and signed to attend Renewable Energy event May 21, paying for the top student in energy technology sequence at Community College where I had taught to also attend.  The event will offer an opportunity to present request that CCGA follow up an excellent resilience/adaptation webinar with one that specifically identifies those climate impacts for which no amount of resilience/adaptation will be effective.  This in line with effort to have planning professionals forecast what US policy, lacking focus on Preventing climate change, can expect from Planning and Put Pieces back Together.  I ask planners to share their forecast directly (face-to-face) with legislative officials.

    I got to listen briefly to WRI's “An Intimate Conversation with 2018 Goldman Environmental Prize Winners.”  Then tuned in to WRI's excellent “Powering Vehicles With Waste: Renewable Natural Gas as a Climate Strategy in the United States,” which will inform visit with MO-8 Representative Jason Smith, whose District lacks ethanol plant, wind turbines, or other renewables that increase farmers' revenue.  Later heard RFF's “What Research Says on Key Fracking Debate Issues.”  This interspersed with pilates exercise, Spanish lesson, and attending a play by Lorca at near-by community theater in Cuenca.   It’s been fun reading others’ posts.  Maybe there will be a template for collaborative efforts??!

    OK, I took bus, rode my electric tricycle, and I walked almost this much, and if I add less than expected biking I did about 10mi/day of low enviro-impact moving about.  Should I take the points ????

    Tough to stay motivated to check in with this dashboard, without face-to-face contact or knowledge of who else is on the team with me!

    This was fun. Earth Day is everyday, not just April 22 or the month of April.

    Materials Eliminate Toxic Plastics
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    We don't use any plastic stuff only once. We try by every means to keep from taking possession of such things, and when it happens we find some new use for it.
