Fight global warming: Ditch the car

Document Actions

Here in Phoenix, where we recently had over 120 days without rain, a record, I believe we are already seeing the results of global warming (HCN, 3/6/06: Save our snow). I’m not waiting for government officials to come to their senses. I got rid of the car; I telecommute. For local trips to the store or to go out to eat, I use a three-wheeled Trikke scooter.
