climate change is serious, and we need to take serious, large-scale action to mitigate it.
when i say #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.

Help me identify this sci-fi novel!
- I read it as a paperback in the late 90s. It was on the new arrivals shelf at my local library
- Male author, I'm pretty sure. I dunno if it's someone notable or not.
- Main premise involves a human who studies other planets' cultures & uses some future tech that allows him to change his body so it's just like the ones of the alien culture.
- He does that repeatedly. There might be risks from this?
- In the end, rather than going to back to his human form, he decides to make his body a fusion of parts from the various cultures.
- Maybe he kinda takes a hoop-like shape and rolls away??
I've been trying to figure this out for yearsssss!
I look forward to the day that I'm not being nearly killed on our streets constantly or trying to find housing being so difficult. We are a long long way from that so my constant confrontation with our shitty status quo will keep me active only bcs I have no other choice. And so many others have it worse, and I can't step aside just bcs I'm comfortable or tired.
