Law that a bicycle needs.
Scientists and politicians are stumped to find a message to people
that would encourage them stop burning gasoline.
While, I am stumped how they can be so blind!
The answer has been with us for more than 150 years now.
Oh! But I am mistaken. Scientists and politicians only put on the environmental appearance. They never actually wanted to do anything about anything. And of course they all drive cars. A car leaves no time for any other thought, even if we call what they do as thinking.
Plan of action on my web:
No matter, if global warming has any proof. Action is beneficial in itself.
Take a bicycle...
It is the best boost and saver to world economy, energy, gross national product, security of nations and energy, and independence.
Governments simply do not know what to do. Give them clear instructions, like mine. Demand personal responsibility.
I give them this read... They pretend illiteracy...
I speak to them. They pretend no comprehension...
I prove... They pretend agreement... and do nothing.
That's a fact. I am doing this for years, and years... I know what I am talking about.
But you must demand responsible handling of newly collected taxes. Otherwise a government would spend it on expansion of cars, instead of investment in education and environment.
Please also remember, that environment itself does not need much investment. Please do not demand any building projects in forests, like bike paths, or roads. Do not stimulate building construction companies - they are those, who invade and destroy nature, and education. Environment is cheap. It is expensive only when we lose it.
You could also encourage people to walk. But walking is not as joyful or efficient. Walking is hard and boring. It will never work. However, it is exactly walking that people invent they like more than cycling, when they need an excuse for taking cars, or at least dreaming of cars, rather than simply sitting on a bike.
Do you know where do they walk? They walk to a "sports gym" - sometimes a kilometer or two.
But most often they drive to there.
These so called "sportswomen" and "sportsmen" never cycle... neither to gym, nor anywhere...
Cycling is fast and fun.
When you mount on a bike, you just pedal... And you don't notice as you get used to it. You go fast, or slow, yet you still go the distance quite quickly.
The message is very simple:
all your business and leisure trips please make on a bicycle.
- just one rule.
This is a far simpler message than:
"please walk 15 minutes a day, park far away, and take the stairs".
- too many conditions to follow. Let's face it - many people are simply too dumb. They can not comprehend all these however simple rules.
The essence is the term "all trips". It doesn't make sense to go by bike only for leisure. When a person cycles everywhere, there's no question of under-exercise, or lack of exercise - one is always fit.
I laugh when I hear people making a big problem:
"Oh, how could we make folks lose weight?! Stay on diet, go to GYM, walk 15 minutes a day..."
Rubbish!!! ... A waste of time, and money.
I suggest you loose weight doing it "by the way". ... Much weight!
Simply go by bicycle everywhere you go, and you lose 10kg of fat just in one month without any extra effort or thinking.
In addition, the prolonged exercise raises the mood.
I am not making things up. I myself lose weight by that rate, when I resume cycling after a prolonged period off bike. ... For example when it was stolen. And I have seen folks loose even more weight just in 2 weeks of making a bicycle tour. A fat man - an acquaintance of mine - became unrecognizable stout "sportsman". - Just after 2 weeks on wheels.
How politicians can deliver the message?
They can do it right now without getting up from their warm chairs.
Time and time again, we hear of one-day campaigns to make people cycle.
Those are usually conducted by politicians. Sometimes by health organizations.
Most of them are formalists, simply doing their paid job. If the job were to sort papers, they would sort papers on their desks all day.
But one-day campaigns never work.
People are very banal animals. They succumb to manipulation. Make a reminder constant, and intrusive. Then they learn just anything. Even that white is black.
Let your imagination loose... Expand this list as seems fit - the more, the better.
The key is:
an every day grinding reminder on every corner, and on every occasion.
As you see, it doesn't take a scientist to save the world. It takes a whole lot more of people in charge, who currently just do nothing.
