Send Your Hard-Hitting QuestionsThere's no doubt that improving transportation is a priority for the environmental movement (though not the only priority -- we also need to significantly improve buildings, how we produce food, electronics, etc). Moving goods and people around requires a lot of energy, and sadly, most of that energy still comes from fossil fuels that pollute our air and mess up our planet's climate. And while the U.S. is a leader in many fields, it still has a lot of work to do to be in a leadership position when it comes to transportation. One of the people who has the power to do something about it is U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.monthly videoblog that addresses transportation issues, and for his next one he's requested some questions from the public via our friends at Streetsblog. We highly encourage you to submit a green-related question; democracy works better when you make your voices heard, and the more politicians hear about certain important issues, the better.
Here's how you can ask your questions to Secretary LaHood:
His Twitter account: @RayLaHood (make sure to use the #q4ray hashtag).
His Facebook page.
Make sure to send your questions before May 10th. Some of the answers to the selected questions will take the form of a video, and some will be published in a guest post on Streetsblog.
