Some good newses again this week.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Culture of Health Blog ran an article last month (April, 2021) entitled Climate Change, Environmental Justice, and the Rise of Local Solutions by Sharon Roerty. Among other things, it says:
In response to our funding proposal, Cities Taking Action to Address Health, Equity, and Climate Change, we learned of promising solutions to air pollution, heat stress, and food insecurity taking root in over 100 cities across 60 countries—from Accra to Athens, Seoul to São Paulo. It gives me hope to see that so many are centering racial equity in their work, increasing community power over the systems and environments where they live, and prioritizing the needs of those who are most affected by the climate crisis.Sharon Roerty
Back in March, the Environmental Protection Agency of the United States of America issued a press release announcing that, under our new president, the EPA would return to its former practice of posting facts on its website. And, sure enough, it has. Here’s a link to its Climate Change page, and here’s one to its Environmental Topics page. Y’all, there is SO MUCH INFORMATION here! I even have a place now to learn what I need to know about green vehicles. Happy!
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a green vehicle. Interpret that any way you want to.
