real talk:
climate change is serious, and we need to take serious, large-scale action to mitigate it.
when i say :bancars: #bancars , this is shorthand. but: don't be stressing about your personal issues, *like that guardian article says*, addressing climate change is about society-wide choices. and as a society, we have chosen cars to transport us. this is not about you, or your job, or your kids.
reliance on personal automobiles needs to stop at the society level. this is not about you.

this is about *us*. this is about the choices that we make as a neighborhood, as a community, as a city.
we choose what to fund and how to get it funded.
our voices are heard by our local elected officials. we *can* make a difference in how we choose to structure our world, at the infrastructure level.
we can say, "prioritize funding for other things over continuing to support private automobiles", in a million ways.
it's not one big change, but a big scaffolding that needs to be re-aligned.

Not to mention public input on city planning and human centric design so we don't need cars in the first place

@pootz that's what i was referring to with "the choices we make as a neighborhood" line so yes

Gotcha, yeah. It's just like going from having to drive to work to being able to bike is such a game changer. Even then though I dream of the day we can finally just ditch cars for good.
