In May of 2019, my wife Grace and I purchased a fully electric 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf. I wrote a travelogue about my adventurous road trip from Memphis, TN to Carbondale, IL. Now, it’s time for an update about what owning an electric car in Southern Illinois has been like so far.
My wife and I just bought our first electric car! We couldn’t find what we were looking for in Southern Illinois, so we bought one in Memphis. The tricky part was getting it home! This is the story of our new car and the journey to bring it back home.
Spring is coming.
Carbondale Spring is a visionary development proposal for the city of Carbondale, Illinois. This proposal serves as both a local response to the global climate crisis and as a solution to many other challenges and needs facing Carbondale on a local and regional level.
What we need in 2019 is climate courage. We need to act boldly and decisively for climate justice. Climate justice delayed is climate justice denied. Let’s not wait another 12 years, or 2 years, or even a single day. It’s time for climate action now.
