Introducing Myself

Hi, Thank you for inviting me to this group! I'll look forward to seeing posts and will sign the petitions before I leave. I belong to a group called The Citizens Climate Lobby. You may be interested in visiting the CCL site and looking at their Plan for the transition to clean energy and renewables. The CCL is currently taking this plan around to Senators and Rep.'s in hopes one of them will want to present it as a bill. It would replace the current, and as you all know, not yet voted on Climate bill. I would love to know what the members here think of the CCL version of a climate bill. On to the petitions!

I am glad to be here. We have some exciting things going on in Memphis. Work is progressing on the Shelby Farms Green line. It looks like it will be opening by the first week of October in time for the scheduled ribbon cutting on Oct 9th. There will be one huge block party along the seven mile route across Memphis plus several Memphis bands and a bicycle parade and this is just the start. More trails are in the works and the Mayor's office is instituting an ambitious bike lane project for the city streets as they are repaved. I hope everyone coming to Memphis will bring their bikes and enjoy our city.

hello from jill. I am happy to be part of a group like this with like minds. I feel we need to move fast to help save our environment from climate change, and other pollutions. I take part by my facebook page: people for six dollar gas tax in america, hopefully promoting alternative transportation, and detering people away from oil. I also have my bike canopy company, www.jillnerkowski.weebly.com. Transportation is as exciting as a Camaro to a teenager. we all go places, and we want to have fun while we do, exercise is nice, some prefer speed, and now we all realize that we need to travel in green cars, and green roadways, for our health, and the health of our fellow creatures and the earth. namaste, jill nerkowski

Here in New Zealand, we have just had our elections for mayors and councils in our towns and cities. In our two largest cities, Auckland and Wellington, we have elected a lot of people who are more pro-public transport and pro-cycling than their predecessors. Wellington even has a new Green mayor! Hopefully this will mean big things for sustainable transport here in future.
Greetings from Ukraine

Hi, I am Elena. I live in a very beautiful city Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. My city is more than 15 centuries old. I've never driven a car and even have not driving license. I can go anywhere I want by bus, trolleybus, tram or subway. It's very different from USA where I lived at 2005-2009. I could not survive there on my own because I could not drive. It's one of the reasons why I returned back to Ukraine after divorce with American. Sadly, but with my University degree, ability to speak 3 languages and IQ 128 I could not adjust to life in USA. I think reliable public transportation should be at every city. People should have choices and options how to get from "point A" to "point B"- by bus, subway or shuttle-bus. Buses or commuter trains between city and suburbs are good too.
