It's council sessions like this where I am proud to be a citizen in Santa Monica. Investing in a more sustainable transportation future and adopting tough green house emissions goals in one swoop.

Family friendly bike event coming up in Santa Monica, volunteers being sought as well. Will feature a bike swap for parents looking to trade bikes for growing kids, a serious dilemma for bikey families, and a booth for helping organize "walk buses" and "bike trains", for commuting to school together.

Thoughts on bike movement in Santa Monica as we head into years ahead, and part two will elaborate on specific strategies and milestones I think will be critical to getting to the next level, and beyond.

Building housing for people without cars shouldn't be a crime, and I could think of some better land uses than seas of parking lots on some of the most beautiful and ideal climate landscape on Earth.

My initial thoughts from being at the rally in DC to push climate change as an issue of national discussion, an issue requiring both mitigation (reduce emissions speeding up process) and adaptation (bracing for change) are needed, and relating it to current land use and transportation policy debates in Santa Monica (shared by many local municipalities).
