Jamie is the Program Director for UPSTREAM, a national non-profit dedicated to creating a healthy, sustainable and equitable society by addressing the root causes of environmental harm. The mission is to advance sustainability, end plastic pollution and reduce climate disruption through product-focused environmental policies. Since the consumption based economy appears to be hear for awhile, it is critical to find a way to do it sustainbly incorporating renewable energy into production, sustainable use practices incorporating reusability and recyclability, and infrastructure sufficient to keep materials moving through the economy rather than relying on continual extraction of virgin resources.

He's also a frequent reader, regularly commenting as J.Rhodes, a Warwick resident, and you'll find him every afternoon teaching his kids how to play every sport ever invented. Know of one that we should be playing? Send me a note. Calvinball, so far, is the clear winner.

One response to “Buses mean business, support sustainable RIPTA”

    It’s very disapointing that there has not been more legislative support for RIPTA, save a few champions like Rep. O’Grady and others.  We’ve had legislative commissions study the agency.  We’ve had Transit 2020.  We’ve had strong attendance at committee hearings.  Now we’ve had the Comprehensive Operational Analysis which I believe will make service better overall.  On top of that, RIPTA’s ridership in 2012 grew by over 6%.  And yet, no stable funding bill has been passed.  Hopefully, this is the year, but, as a daily transit rider, I have learned to keep my expectations low.
