Environmental Thought For The Day

I joined the local Bike Coalition last month…certifying that I will never be electable in any category if I ever dared run for any kind of political office. People mistakenly label bikers in my town as extremists (as to why they don’t label us true conservatives is beyond me - e.g. I’m too cheep to pay for gas to drive my car or even pay the fare for local public transit; so my car sits idle most the year round unless I’m toting my windsurfing gear to the launch, but I digress).

I now get their e-news letter. In this last one, they linked up to a fun article that brings us to today’s environmental thought for the day:

The biggest con running in the auto industry right now is the notion that hybrids represent some sort of quantum leap in green transportation. Not only is this patently untrue — hybrid technology is actually decades old — but it shamelessly plays to the hypocrisy of our society. If we really wanted to save the planet, instead of buying hybrids we would start walking. Or riding bikes. Maybe a few more of us would try public transportation. How about starting with slowing down to the speed limit on the freeway?

I rode my bike to work today. How about you?

Enjoy this little fun clip:
