    Most transportation has been generated by burning liquid hydrocarbons. It is responsible for 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions. 
    For more bike friendly cities - 
    a. Networks of well-lit, tree-lined bike lanes or paths - the more direct, level, and interconnected - the better. 
    b. Well-designed intersections, roundabouts & points of access.
    c. Access to public transit, secure bike parking, city bike share programs, and workplace showers.

    Women and girls have higher risks and are more vulnerable to events of climate crisis and natural disaster. It is most acute in women of poverty. If we gain ground in gender equity, we also gain ground in climate crisis.

    Population of the Earth depends on fertility rates and headway made for gender equity. Drawing down emissions depends on rising up underrepresented communities. 130 million girls are denied basic education. An education can mean strength, adaptability, and choice for pregnancy rather than chance.

    Women and Girls Research Businesses Owned by Women, POC, or Immigrants

    I take my bike in Portland to Gladys Bikes which is a bike shop owned by women - for women bicyclers specifically. It's really nice to go to a business that knows how to work with bikes and confronts equity challenges. I can research more women-owned businesses! I have also been looking for businesses owned by people of color.

    During this time, it is essential that people work from home as much as possible, and meet virtually. It honors values of wasting less resources through unnecessary travel while still trying to stay connected.

    I could avoid paper towels in my kitchen, & instead have my own hand towel. My roommates buy them and we've been avoiding community hand towels, but there could we a waste free way to do it!

    Smaller protions are also, if not easy, at least expected to be rewarding.  Or am I the only one who's put on 4 lbs since this started?

    Reducing animal products (meat) has been pretty easy for me - especially hearing about the coronavirus conditions in slaughterhouses... ugh!
