Climate Change in the American Mind: April 2020

Two in three Americans (66%) say the issue of global warming is either “extremely,” “very,” or “somewhat”important to them personally, while one in three (33%) say it is either “not too” or “not at all” personally important.

More than six in ten Americans (64%) say they “rarely” or “never” discuss global warming with family and friends, while 36% say they do so “occasionally” or “often.”

climatecommunication.yale.edu Our latest national survey finds that, in the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic, American public opinion about climate change has remained steady and, in some cases, reached all-time highs.

How cycling could help drive racial equality

"[Bicycling] is the most energy-efficient means of transport in the world with an energy consumption of around 0.025 kWh per kilometre. In comparison, a car uses 22 times as much energy....The bicycle is, as such, an equitable object, yet, this is not the social reality with which we are confronted."

weforum.org Bike culture could help progress racial equality and bring massive societal benefits but is tangled in issues of gentrification and economic exclusion.

A #HealthyRecovery

"The layers of this ongoing tragedy are many, and magnified by inequality and underinvestment in public health systems....In a healthy economy and civil society the most vulnerable among us are looked after. Workers have access to well-paying jobs that do not exacerbate pollution or nature degradation; cities prioritise pedestrians, cyclists and public transport, and our rivers and skies are protected and clean. Nature is thriving, our bodies are more resilient to infectious diseases, and nobody is pushed into poverty because of healthcare costs."
