Stop Riding You Bike For Transportation.

This is an honest argument that I saw on the news the other night. A guy on the show stated that riding your bike instead of driving is actually worse on the environment. He said that when you ride a bike you burn a lot more calories that you would driving a car (no brainer), thus, you eat more. I thought to myself “Well yeah, that is about right”. Then he stated that since you eat more there is a high demand for food as a whole, making the need for food to be transported. He said the trucks that transport the food cause much more damage to the environment than a single car. Then he ended the discussion with the statement that is was the environmentalist fault for global warming and “stop riding your bike for transportation”. He kind of laughed it off but they were serious. Discuss.
