Cycling in Sydney Australia
will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
when I'm 94?
Translation (as I understand it):
Peak Oil will constrain motoring before 2050.
Qantas is already reducing flights with oil at $US105/barrel (Singapore Tapis around $120/barrel)
Motorists will soon be reducing their driving at this fuel price.
From the "Motor Authority", eh??
My comment on their article:
"Will EV technology be far enough along to replace the demand for personal mobility only an automobile can provide?"
We already have a vehicle which can do this. It uses no climate-changing fuel and its engine gets stronger and more reliable the more it is used. It could immediately replace most journeys completed by fossil-fuel burning cars, more than half of which are under 5km. It just needs the political will to provide for it and a slight shift in the mindset of some people. What is this miracle vehicle? The bicycle! Remember it? It has been around longer than cars.
