Kill your car? Seems kinda extreme…
Yes. Yes it is.
Why so angry?
Well it’s not anger, per se, but rather a way to jar folks into another way of thinking. Let me put it this way. There is plenty of information out there on folks can be more “green” doing this or that. Driving this or that. Driving this way or that way, etc. But rarely is someone out there advocating for a entire paradigm shift as necessary for any significant environmental change to happen when it comes to transportation and reliance on fossil fuels.
There will always be a need for cars now and again, mainly for important transportation of goods and services and for folks who need assistance. But as I sit here and see so many cars on the road with one driver and no passengers, I can’t help but see waste.
This blog will be exploring true alternative transportation strategies and methods as well as telling tales of our very exciting and changing transportation world.
Just like the old artistic maxim “Kill your TV!”, hardly anyone actually did, but it made a point on our society’s docile reliance on the media for filtered information. I’m just trying the same angle with alternative transportation.
Ok, I drive a car, do you hate me?
Nope. But would I encourage you to look at alternate means to go to the places you want to go without using a traditional car? Yes.
Hmm, I see you ride a bike. So THAT’S where all this holier-than-thou entitlement is coming from!
You think? Probably. But it’s not like I’m in some exclusive club you cannot join. And to be fair. Who’s causing more pollution, A car or a bike? When folks think it’s lame that I enjoy riding a bike, have fun doing it, do it without burning fossil fuels and encourage others to leave their cars at home, I just have to realize they are being poor sports.
One thing I can’t stand, however, is listening to all the excuses why someone doesn’t ride a bike and/or why they “need” to drive their car. No excuses, just ride!
I bet you’re gonna get a lot of hater mail!
