The climate kids are right. Adults aren’t providing very good role models in the war against global warming.
Anchorage and all of Alaska could take the lead here to show them by example with two easy steps:
- Ban school buses except for kids with handicaps.
- Set up a schedule of escalating fines for parents who use a motor vehicle to pick up or drop off their kids at school.
Say maybe $5 for the first offense with every offense thereafter increasing by a fiver? That’s 20 trips to the school for only $100. If you want to keep on driving your kids to school, think of it as both your punishment for putting carbon in the air and your chance to help fund education.
