Solar streetlights along bicycle path in Moscow, Idaho for blog action day
My post for Blog Action Day 09 topic of climate change.
Paradise Trail along Paradise Creek in Moscow, ID. and it was Paradise. My 09 bicycle tour was lots of fun. Feels good bicycling and staying healthy. 1,300 miles in 31 days.
Glad I get lots of time off work. Vacation is possibly the best thing about my job.
The technology of solar power and the less "rat race" form of travel. For protecting the earth, what more could one ask for.
Technology can help us reduce the carbon footprint. Years ago, I couldn't have brought a computer with me on my bicycle. Too heavy and bulky. Now there's several types of computers that can fit easy in the pannier.
Computer for WIFI stops. Brings more variety when all one can carry is what fits on a bike, or possibly a bike and trailer.
Microelectronics: Also makes it easier to live in a small dwelling year round. Who needs a big house or sprawling residential area.
Nice to be "child free" also. Percent of population raising family could diminish thus allowing a more livable world for the lower number of children. A world of less rat race where progress is measured in quality of life and technological advance rather than total amount of material consumption. A less obese world in many ways.
