I didn’t know that people who listen to Rush Limbaugh (dittoheads) were on this mailing list. And that reminds me, 

I wonder if bicyclists can trade carbon credits for commuting instead of driving, now there’s motivation!

The central thesis is that somehow humans are different from all of the other species. There is nothing to suggest that this is true.  We will propagate until our population reaches an unsustainable limit and collapses.


The planet, on the other hand, will be just fine.  It has survived far worse.

There is motivation to bicycle and maybe ride CM in this quote taken from the website: http://www.beyondtalk.net/


"Scientists tell us that the maximum level of CO2 our atmosphere can safely bear is 350 parts per million. Beyond that, our planet is at imminent risk of catastrophic changes we'll never be able to stop — meaning billions of people will die. 


Today, the level of CO2 in the atmosphere is already at 390 worldwide — and it's rising at 2 parts per million per year."


And,for those afraid to lose their job for becoming known as a radical by being outlandishly outspoken, going on CM rides and even losing your cool once in a while,  you can help sponsor an activist who will risk arrest.


Just click on the link that says:


  "I am unable to get arrested, but would like to purchase “action offsetS” to help someone else receive civil-disobedience training or pay bail, or to otherwise assist this program."
