    What do you think our air and water would be like if there were no EPA? One problem with capitalism is that corporations maximize profits with no regard for the commons. The only effective way to...

    Do you and lenA live near each other? Michigan looks a lot like Wisconsin, but maybe flatter. Being on the opposite side of the lake, we have colder springs and warmer autumns. It went down to 21F...

    Wow! I'm impressed with your workmanship. That's a good way to get saddle and bars to really match.

    I think bikes are best in places that are a little spread out. Ride in the suburbs, walk in the city, and take the bus to go between them.

    I think you're missing the point when you say, "a reversal of that paradox would require people to act in a manner which is contrary to their own best interest...."

    Titles are supposed to be provocative, so get over that. Two issues that interest me:



    As as you say, nobody really feels that they're entitled to be given a new car. But many people feel that...

    What if the only job you can find requires you to have a car, or is located in a place that is accessible only by car? What if you can't even "seek" employment without a car? By your logic, it seems...

    Keep up the good work, Steve. I think we all need to be a little more assertive when people start pushing their car-centric POVs. They certainly have a right to express their opinions, but so do we....

    Well, it is a step in the right direction. A bigger step would be to have only one vehicle. Any reason the Prius cant take you camping? Also, if you have a power boat, you might think about getting a...

    True, but unless you scrapped the old truck, you are just adding one more vehicle to the planet. And even scrapping a vehicle adds to the carbon footprint. The only way to cause a large reduction in...

    Almost all of your posts are about cars. Are you having trouble grasping the concept of a carfree forum? Maybe you thought they were giving away free cars?

    I agree philosophically. But on a practical level, low income people could spend less than $1900 up front to finance a better used car, and the monthly payments wouldn't necessarily be greater than...

    How long would it take to drive, including time needed to find parking? You are talking about one of the most densely populated regions of the world.

    People are always posting that cyclists eat a lot more than motorists. Maybe the mileage rate should be tied to the price of pancakes or something?
