Earth Cyclists- zero emissions. As we face the fears of peak oil and the end of crude oil. Surely it is time for some sweat the in your transport legs. Start the journey towards carbon neutral transport, via the old bicycle or a newer trike

Greeting fellow fossil fuels exhaust eater/ politician

In regards to climate change, we are seeking your support for the cheapest form of CO2 reduction on the planet, I’m talking about the campaign of MORE BUTTS ON BICYCLES.

Human Powered Transport via the bicycle or trike is the simplest and easiest and cheapest form of transport we have to combat climate change. We are hoping the you will support the campaign to provide equal access to our roads for cyclists. Via adding a 1.5 metre(5 feet) bicycle lane to all roads by 2050

plus abolish any laws that may interfere with the goal of MORE BUTTS ON BICYCLES, such as compulsory bicycle helmets laws.

The average person can travel up to 30 kilometres(18.64 miles) to work via Human Powered Transport(bicycle)

Longer trips via bicycle tourism should be encourage via a system of camping grounds, spread out at 30 kilometres(18.64 miles) apart in between towns. Cyclist Adventure Camping Grounds should be free of charge. And Include a composting toilet.

We are seeking the transfer of all taxation dollars from the
cigarette and fuel and carbon taxes to be directed towards the rebuilding of the entire road network to include the above Bicycle Lanes by 2050. We are also seeking that all advertisement dollars spend on anti smoking advertisement, be transferred towards pro cyclist campaign.

Our long term goals is to reduce the number of trips via motor vehicle by 50% on 2010 levels

the health effects of fossil fuels exhaust over the health effects of cycling should be the main focus of advertisement. When you consider that the exhaust from fossil fuels is 20 times more deadly than cigarette smoke. Cigarette smoke output is one thousandth the output of fossil fuels smoke

So if politicians are serious about the health effects of second hand cigarette smoke. Then They must be a supporter of MORE BUTTS ON BICYCLES, As a measure of improving public health. When the health effects of second hand smoke from fossil fuels is 20 times more deadly

thank you for your time/support

CYCLE SUNDAY

THE START OF A GLOBAL MOVEMENT TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE ON A PERSONAL LEVEL. VIA BOYCOTTING MOTORISED TRANSPORT FOR ZERO EMISSIONS TRANSPORT. VIA USING ONLY HUMAN POWERED TRANSPORT ON SUNDAY.



I think that we should lower the speed limit on all roads that do not include a bicycle lane to 30 kilometre or about 20 miles per hour.


So that all road user are travelling at the same speed

Then motorists will be required to travel at the same speed as cyclists

I think that cyclists should have equal access to our road systems

when you think that fossil fuel vehicle emit 2.3 kilograms of CO2 per litre or 22.77 pounds per gallon. I guess the average fuel consumption is at 10 kilometres per litre or 28 miles per gallon. Then the average cyclist would would save 0.23 kilograms per kilometre or 0.813 pounds per mile

So on my future trip around australia at about 15,000 kilometres I would save about 3,450 kilograms of CO2

I wonder how many scientist that talk the talk on climate change, walk the walk via using the only climate friend transport we have (human powered transport). The old bicycle or new trikes.

if society was serious about climate change the the people in change of our small planet would all be riding bicycles or trikes to work and lead society into zero emissions
