Retelling Urban Mobility - South to North 22.6.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Cities are important because that's where the majority of the world's population lives and an even bigger share of the global economy resides. How people move around their city is a big deal. It affects productivity, security, health and global warming, among other things. Cities are complex and contain just about anything or concept ever invented by humans. How the city is built, its topography and how close you live to your work and a grocery store affects your mobility. Even that subject - urban mobility - is complex to communicate. Experts agree that urban mobility needs to be multi-modal. And every city needs a mix that caters to its climate, topography, infrastructure etc. So it is very difficult just to copy another city's transport system and scale. Wallkability - and maybe cycleability - seem to be the only constants. But saying that transport must always be locally adapted doesn't say much.

Roadmap 2020: Iowa Candidate Friese Campaigns on Bike to Showcase Johnson County Sustainability Issues 12.5.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Nationally known as a pioneer in the local food and farm movement, Johnson County supervisor candidate Kurt Friese is giving a new twist to the old motto of walking the walk in politics.
