    What are your next steps for saving energy?

    my home in Ithaca has many features that are sustainable and energy efficient! we have solar panels, rain water totes, a permaculture garden and a regular garden, a bee garden, energy efficient windows, and electric heating. However a lot of our personal and cleaning habits are far less sustainable. My main goal for saving more energy in our home is replacing all our single use items such as sponges, shampoo bottles, toothbrushes, papertowels, menstrual products, with sustainable versions.

    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    Ive been eating more fruits and vegetables (normally a big part of my diet anyways) but I've also cut meat out of my diet as best as I can (sometimes there's not much in the dining hall)  because the meat industry has such a huge carbon footprint. reducing meat in your diet reduces C02 released into the atmosphere by pounds every day

    How does city planning and design relate to equity and climate change?

    Urban areas can create heat islands due to more concrete and fewer trees. However areas that were redlined had fewer trees and parks creating micro heat islands that caused dangerous and deadly extreme heat in predominantly low income or black communities. These communities also have fewer resources to deal with extreme heat and will be less prepared to adapt with changing climate.

    I think I saw the peregrine falcon again today! some flowers are poking out of the brown grass! beautiful! In Ithaca there are some great water features and I hope I can explore more here in Brockport and find some more places (besides the Canal)

    What does your vision of a sustainable community look like? What would need to be changed in order for such vision to become reality?

    sustainable farming in Ithaca is already a big part of the community! Things like community gardens, solar farms, and mutual aid are attainable goals for sustainability. More long term community geothermal and more accessible personal farming are important. Supporting local farmers and businesses is a huge community sustainability goal as well

    Micro turbines can be placed on large structures to take advantage of stronger, steadier breezes. The Eiffel Tower now sports vertical axis turbines that produce electricity for use on site. Where could micro turbines potentially be installed in your city?

    Brockport is so windy we could almost put them anywhere! however the bridges could be retrofitted for wind that could power the drawbridges and the college high rises could have mini turbines on them

    I went on a run and saw a bald eagle catching a fish, I love being outdoors because I can see things like that and I want to preserve those kinds of. experiences for other people
