Cats Indoors

People who love their cats should keep them indoors, where they can be kept safe and won't be raiding the nests of dooryard birds. If allowed to run loose, cats are subject to catching parasitic infections and other diseases from the rest of the neighborhood's cats and at risk of being run over by vehicles.

Brushing Teeth: Turn it OFF!

When you're brushing your teeth, turn off the water. Yes we understand that you need to rinse and spit, but its better for everyone if you just fill a cup halfway and rinse and spit with that. You're wasting water that is seriously needed for the rest of the world.

Knowledge

First Step: KNOWLEDGE!!

I think the first step anyone can really take is to let people know about what's going on. Sometimes, the only reason people don't want to help is because they don't know HOW! We have to first spread knowledge before we can change anything.

Prepare infrastructure for electric vehicles

Prepare for infrastructure needed for electric vehicles. The all-electric Nissan Leaf is coming out later this year, and there is no where to charge it in central AR other than your house or an RV park.

Stop pushing light rail transit

Stop pushing light rail transit. It is very cost intensive and lacks flexibility. Use a mixture of buses and vans instead.
