    I can't believe it's the last day of the challenge! I learned a lot about drawdown solutions, and I hope to put as many as possible into action.

    Watching Planet Earth II. Amazing.

    I know that part of my town's energy comes from coal plants, but they are so far away we don't see their smoke, or even know they're there. Being fairly remote, there is a lot of transportation cost just getting our stores stocked. We also truck out garbage to a landfill two hours away. We truly don't get to see firsthand the effects of our...

    Happy Earth Day!

    Meat tends to be more common in affluent areas. In the US, often celebrations are held at a nice steakhouse rather than a vegetarian place. I would even go so far as to say that the behaviour is akin to running credit card debt or being overweight, in that we often buy or eat more than we should.

I'm not being sarcastic, just brutally honest. I do what I can and it never seems enough. However, the things I can do help me feel a little better. I joined the county...

    If I had to build a community from scratch: At the center, I would put most of the commercial and educational buildings, with networks of paths connecting them for ease of walkability. There would be an electric public bus going around the outside (for some reason, I envision a monorail ... but not necessary). Inside, there would also be...

    I'm not sure I have the time to write all my thoughts on unsustainability. Let's see, dependence on cars (individual transportation), fast fashion, planned obsolescence, cultural expectations, keeping up with the Jones's, in-your-face advertising, easy-to-get credit, industrial-scale farming, dependence on coal and unwillingness to change with...
