[Cyclelicious] New comment on Is the Lehman Brothers meltdown bad for alternativ....

"Moon-shot efforts like the Volt get attention, but the most effective ways to use less energy may have less to do with changing technology than with changing habits."

"Ditching the internal-combustion engine could mean ditching the way of life that goes with it, and returning to an era in which more travel revolves around train and bus schedules, and more people live in smaller homes in dense urban neighborhoods."

Conservation supported via better urban design pays large dividends even in the near term. State and federal policies should support these remedies, instead of supporting the opposite as they do now.
