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

    By walking to classes more than driving i get to see more within the community i live in and i get to diminish the amount of pollution i put in the air by doing this as well. I like walking more than anything else because i get to see what is happening on campus more and also get some excersise as well.

    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    Brad Wilson 2/24/2020 8:45 AM
    People in richer countries eat more meat because it is available to these countries more than impoverished ones. Eating meat can sometimes be an unhealthy option, red meats can cause various health issues and other fatty meats such as bacon, pork, etc..Our planet gets affect by this because we put a dent into the animal population and force these animals to live in harsh living environments.

    Changing lightbulbs is an excellent first step toward energy efficiency! What's next for you?

    My next step would to be to add more lightbulbs in my house and to promote this idea to others as well.
