We got this email from Carolyn Mansfield from the Sierra Club:
“I checked out your site and saw your post about environmental issues. I thought you and your readers might be interested in this story. “Mr. Green” is Sierra Club’s answer guy, and has a column about all things green that he updates weekly.
In honor of Bike to Work Day, he’s put out this discussion of the carbon emissions of biking vs. driving. He basically puts to rest the myth that fueling a bike (by feeding a person food that has been grown with fossil fuel inputs and transported to the consumer) is worse for the environment than fueling a car.

Who knew that a fifth of Vodka and 2 shots will give you enough fuel for that half century!
