    Yes.

    But the article accounts for the fossil energy needed to produce and transport the food used by the cyclist. But it doesn't figure in the energy used to produce and transport the fossil fuel...

    I see the snow piles in Boston just melted a few days ago, in mid-July. After a snowy winter here in Lansing, we have a snow pile in a shopping center parking lot that looks as big as the sledding...

    I think you might be minimizing the increased metabolic efficiency of a regular bicyclist. Many of the members here have mentioned that they don't eat more even though they ride every day. If they're...

    And a couple observations:

    This whole thread was angry and ugly until three of our saner members--who all happen to be female--got people to take a deep breath and think about the child. Sadly,...

    The impression I got from the OP was the same--that you hate the boy and everybody in his generation. Or at least despise them and are disgusted by their weakness and laziness.

    This is certainly a high class problem or, literally, a first world problem. Our technology is much more a blessing than a curse, although, if we don't handle it properly it does cause big problems...

    The OP post made it seem like kids who are wimpy are subsequently more likely to ride in cars. Now you're saying it's the other way around? Kids who ride in cars are subsequently turning into wimps....
