College course on the car culture problem

Here is an actual online course on car culture I discovered a few years ago.
http://www.uwsp.edu/geo/courses/geog100/CarCulture.htm
It is a good resource. It's good to see bicycling is being promoted in the schools. Not only this, but if you read the material, you will come away with a greater understanding of who the enemy is. Return to the course home, and either pick the schedule link or use the list at the bottom and chose "Petroleum Use" and "Global Warming" to get better perspective of how the oil and auto industry plays dirty pool (Really dirty when considering the air).

From what I understand, environmental science courses at universities have been saying that for a long time. I don't think they're telling us anything we didn't already know. The biggest battle seems to be getting people to care.

Amen. Well, putting it in people's faces is always a good thing. Ya know, I am treated like a lunatic for biking
even when it's 70 degrees out in November. Historically, the warmest it gets in Nov. here , is like in the 50's and maybe the '60's- at most. I remember it snowing on many election day, in days past. Now, everyone's been wearing shorts well into the month. We got a crash cold spell around the 15th this past year- it was 70 out the day before though. The year prior it remained in the 70's well into September. Expect the NE region of the US to remain slightly colder due to the shut down of the Atlantic current. The influx of fresh water from the icecaps is the culprit. The salt water sinks when it gets cool. The force of the settling of this mass of water makes it circulate from North to south.
