Charting a Sustainable Course

A Car-Free Bogotá

What an exciting concept! I would love to see this happen everywhere. Cars are the stinking dinosaur of the 20th century. Leaving the airport yesterday, I remember thinking to myself, "there's no way you pry the cars away from these people". And you couldn't take my car away from me right now. Life totally sucks down here without a car.

The urbanized world will have to be redesigned to accomodate a car-free lifestyle but I think it would be more than worth it. I think it's critical for the future of our planet's environment, the environment our children and grand-children will have to breathe and play in.
