Bicycle Madness!

Maes said last week that an international environmental group that promotes Denver’s B-Cycle program is part of a "greater strategy to rein in American cities under a United Nations treaty."

Found this fitting for the madness forum.

The Bicycle is under attack, for political gain.

To me it looks like someone who has a hand in the oil industry is feeling a little threatened. How can encouraging more people to ride bikes be anything but healthier for the body and better for the environment? What an idiot.

Maes said he thought promoting more bicycling was pretty harmless at first, but he realized later "that’s exactly the attitude they want you to have."

"It’s all part of this population control mentality that we as humans are the disease," Strauch said, adding: "He never said that biking is inherently wrong."

Wow, "the attitude they want you to have," promoting bicycling?
You are right this is funny, in a fringe kinda way. What's next carpooling is a Socialist plot against the car manufacturers? Or Vespa retailers secretly work for the NWO?

Maddening? Yes

Although this fellow may sound clownish. ICLEI is involved in far more then putting citizens on bikes. I personally do not find the United Nations agendas benign. These pay bike racks are all over Denver. Little do people realize they may be funding several noxious UN agendas.

Just a thought.

Renting it is parasitic, ppl should be allowed to buy them on extreme
low or no interest loans.

As I have said I think a Co-op would do this best vs. government.

Corporations and government are fundamentally corrupt.

I think that recycled aluminum could go to make a strong and safe
trike that can haul groceries and will not easily tip over.

It would be all aluminum and have foam filled tires that never go flat.

It would not rust, it would not need paint.

The chain could be made of stainless steel or another material
that is strong and does not rust, or it could be belt driven for
that matter.

You could make it an electric bike that runs on the new paper batteries.

Some e-bikes on youtube go 75 mph which is probably too fast to be safe.

A lot of ppl already ride scooters, just swap out the drive train.

With Coastal windpower, ocean current power, and jet stream power
we have many many times the power to run everything.

1% of the jet streams alone would replace all forms of power on earth.

If we wanted to stay on oil we even know how to grow it.

We do not have an energy problem, we have an idiocy problem.

But that is nothing new under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 (New International Version)

What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.

Not a big fan of religion, but the shoe fits.
