A Message Brought To You By Smog.

July 23, 2007 - A Message Brought To You By Smog.

Camera: Pentax Spotmatic. Oxford and Bellevue.

This weekend I had the opportunity to sit with some people I'd just met and talk aver beers. Our conversation steered towards the environment and what we should be doing. It struck me as ironic that we don't make people stop driving when we declare smog days. Why? Think about this: you can still drive your car, but the smog warning comes with an advisory to avoid being outdoors and exercising. This means if you ride a bike to work (as I have recently started doing), you are in essence being advised to start using fossil fuels by taking transit or driving. Sounds like we've got a bit of a ways to go before we solve that climate crisis that everyone's talking about.
