We occasionally get asked about how our work relates to fighting climate change. I’m recopying below a short email response I wrote on this subject:
The main thing is that we fight sprawl, the car-use-maximizing, environment-destroying driver of climate change.
We’ve written about climate change here:
We’ve submitted critical environmental comments on bad projects that point out the climate change effects. We’ve opposed many logging projects which have climate change impacts. We’ve supported natural flood plain protection as opposed to dams, pumping, and still more streamside development. We’ve supported initiatives that reduce house sizes, which waste energy.
And we’ve proven that environmentalists can win victories, just as the environmental values will win and stop climate change.
