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.

The Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, contrary to all expectation, has become the most important left insurgency in the United States in nearly half a century. A year ago, even his most optimistic supporters might have hoped that Sanders would enliven the presidential debates by challenging Hillary Clinton on issues of Wall Street power and big money corruption, and perhaps garner a quarter to a third of the primary vote. Instead, Sanders won primaries and caucuses in 23 states, and amassed over 12 million votes and nearly 43% of the pledged delegates. And all this while unapologetically and unabashedly proclaiming himself a ...
