    90% of lower Manhattan residents do not have a car and public transit fulfills every one of their transportation needs. It's not likely to be because of the lack of income.

    Everything will be more expensive, but with oil at 150 even if a kilowatt is going to cost double, it's still very reasonable. And, per watt emitted, i suspect that "nucular" energy emits far less...

    That's plain wrong - the energy output of per unit weight of enriched uranium is way, way bigger than all of the energy expenditures on mining and enrichment. We are talking times, not percent here.

    I ride about 25-30 miles a day in New York City, so any bike is a beater for me. The only difference is that my current "beater" is not really suitable for the conditions I will be facing abroad.
