To be serious and honest about greening Fresno and improving air quality:
Restrict and eliminate drive-throughs.
Encourage human-centered transportation for schools and work (walking, bicycle lanes).
Synchronize stop lights (minimize idling).
Never miss a local story.
Support green cabs (hybrids that don't idle and earn good fuel economy), as are increasingly used in other communities.
Support retailers by limiting "single-use" plastic shopping bags and encouraging reusable cloth bags.
Encourage semiarid climate-appropriate landscaping (vs. lawns).
Include all schools and sports venues (Grizzlies, Fresno State) as part of an active recycling program.
