  • Reflection Question
    Transport Improve a Bus Stop
    How can you advocate for transportation systems which minimize environmental impact while also meeting human needs?

    Alexis Bane 5/13/2019 3:49 PM
    I can advocate for them because even though they have minimal impact on the environment there still is an impact. If humans are being satisfied then these transportations can be justified 
  • 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?

    Alexis Bane 5/13/2019 3:46 PM
    The fact that transportation was so easy with cars, buses, etc, made it easier for me to take these transportations
  • Reflection Question
    Transport Stay on the Ground
    What was your process like for restructuring your trip? How can you avoid more air travel in the future?

    Alexis Bane 5/13/2019 3:43 PM
    I can decide not to travel as much because I don't really like traveling anyway.
  • Reflection Question
    Transport Try Carpooling
    List some of the places you frequent often (work, grocery store, natural areas). Could you choose one or two days a week to schedule driving with a friend, neighbor or co-worker to these places?

    I go to this restaurant a lot every weekend called Darby'O Gills. I always carpool with my friends when I go there.

    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience or enjoyment differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    Alexis Bane 5/13/2019 3:36 PM
    My trips to class are more enjoyable because I can walk with my friend ava and we listen to music. Also the campus is beautiful so it is fun
  • Reflection Question
    Transport Research and Advocate for High-Speed Rail
    What are the factors that influence your choice of transportation? These can include things like money, time, and convenience, as well as perceptions of danger or safety. What would need to change for you to regularly choose more climate-friendly options?

    Alexis Bane 5/13/2019 3:35 PM
    I did not have enough money and I also wanted to exercise and walk more
  • Reflection Question
    Materials Recycle Everything I Can
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle? How does considering implementing these "R's" make you feel?

    Alexis Bane 5/13/2019 3:35 PM
    The R's make me feel good because whenever I see people doing any of these R's it is clear that they care about the environment and are doing their best to make an impact. 
  • Reflection Question

    How do you address your own feelings of concern, fear or despair about climate change?
