What is it about politicians? Do they live in a permanent unreality field to want to be one, or does it come with the job? Either way, you’d have to be living in a universe with odd physical laws to believe that it’s worse for the climate to ride a bicycle than it is to drive a car. According to Seattle Bike Blog, one of their politicians lives in that universe. He says, “You would be giving off more CO2 if you are riding a bike than driving a car.”
He wants to tax the bicycles, so I guess it’s understandable in a way. He is a politician, after all.
