  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Research and Consider Switching to a Hybrid or Electric Vehicle
    Reducing (or eliminating) exhaust emissions and improving public health are two benefits of green vehicles. What other motivators inspire you to consider switching to a more fuel-efficient vehicle?

    James Riddle's avatar
    James Riddle 10/26/2021 9:53 AM
    My single biggest motivator for buying an EV really is reducing overall GHG emissions and promoting the rapid transition to a low carbon economy and community.

  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Research My Investment Portfolio
    In what ways can you increase the positive impacts and decrease the negative impacts of your financial investments?

    James Riddle's avatar
    James Riddle 10/26/2021 9:17 AM
    increase positive impacts by investing in activist funds, decrease negative impacts by investing in ESG funds.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Stay on the Ground
    What was your process like for restructuring your trip? How can you avoid more air travel in the future?

    James Riddle's avatar
    James Riddle 10/25/2021 8:54 AM
    my family thought critically about who really needed to travel and where. in doing so fewer of us needed air travel and we flew less distance.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Choose a Carbon Offset
    A round-trip flight from New York City to Los Angeles emits just over 1.5 tons of CO2—per person. That’s a lot of carbon! What can you do to reduce the number of flights you take per year?

    as much as virtual meetings are an awful substitute for in-person interaction, at least they save on air travel impacts.
  • Reflection Question

    How might impact investing help you better live your values?

    impact investing can drive change at levels i'd otherwise not have access to.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Forage for My Food
    People are motivated to forage for many different reasons: as a source for food, a means of income, to connect with nature, to participate in cultural tradition, transmitting specific ecological knowledge, or as a means of stewarding local and native plant populations are just a few examples. What is your chief motivation for foraging?

    James Riddle's avatar
    James Riddle 10/25/2021 8:51 AM
    foraging is both a fun and relaxing activity (you pretty much have to be outdoors), also foraging helps me feel like my modern city life is just a little bit less wasteful.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Buy From a Farmers Market
    What is one food choice that you make, or could make, that would do more good and less harm?

    James Riddle's avatar
    James Riddle 10/25/2021 8:49 AM
    eat more vegetables and less meat. and when eating meat/dairy buy from local farmers that are good stewards of their land.

    advocate for all community infrastructure and procurement spending to take long term sustainability and social equity into account.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Improve a Bus Stop
    How can you advocate for transportation systems which minimize environmental impact while also meeting human needs?

    James Riddle's avatar
    James Riddle 10/25/2021 8:46 AM
    the best way to advocate is by using public transit to show the value to the community in real time.
