Why do I vehemently fight smoking bans?.........because "they" are out there.
I would like to propose the following three ideas: ban television advertising for motor vehicles (like cigarettes and booze); allow people to donate their vehicles in exchange for a lifetime pass on all metro-area mass transit (as long as they remain "car-free"); and impose a 500-gallon-per-year limit on all drivers. Other ideas are out there. The Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas is now predicting that global production will peak as early as 2006. Are we going to face the problem head on or be caught with our pants down?
