Here's a first mile, last mile solution to L.A.'s transit woes - try walking 10.6.2016 LA Times: Commentary

When babies learn to walk, they stumble at first, clumsily cruising from coffee table to couch until a leap of faith finally frees them to walk independently. Even then, the steps are unsteady — most babies don’t master the smoother heel-to-toe motion that adults use until they’re 2.

Two Degrees for Food: Rebuilding the Global Food System 10.6.2016 Politics on
After the success of the Paris Agreement, I can walk into any room shouting "2°C!" and everyone knows that I am talking about climate change. We have a problem, there is a science-based target to aim for, and we are implementing the solutions to solve it. If I walk into those same rooms and shout "food," people would just look around for lunch. Yet as with climate change, food-related issues are entwined with every development challenge we face. Food insecurity, famine, hunger, nutrient deficiency, distribution and transport issues sit cheek-by-jowl with obesity, over-consumption, food loss and waste -- not to mention the rise of diabetes in adults and now in children. While a child dies from hunger every six seconds, the global weight-loss industry generates close to $200 billion in revenue every year. Our food system is broken. It contributes to climate change, water stress, desertification and ecosystem degradation. It's also a vast contributor to global emissions. According to the IPCC, agricultural ...

Spoke Talk: How do you use your bike 9.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
How do you use your bike? What kind of bike is it? Here in Steamboat, you see a big cross section: older steel road bikes, ultralight carbon road bikes, really old vintage road bikes, cruisers, hybrids, comfort bikes, old mountain bikes, shiny-new, full-suspension mountain bikes, fat bikes and everything in between. I haven’t seen any bamboo frames in town, but there’s probably at least one hiding somewhere nearby. Most of us use our bikes for recreation and fitness, whether that’s a casual ride on the Core Trail or grinding up Rabbit Ears Pass. But bikes aren’t just toys; they’re a useful tool. Bikes are a great transportation option, especially for shorter distances, and you can carry a surprising amount on them. Maybe the idea of biking to work or for errands intrigues you, but you’re a little nervous about how to make that happen? Start with short trips on routes you know well and are comfortable riding. The Core Trail is a great resource for getting from one side of town to the other, so that you ...
