  • Great graphic depicting US government subsidies to various energy industries (your tax dollars at work):

    The only quibble I would have is that carbon capture and storage is, at this point, mostly a PR campaign for the coal industry. Sadly (very sadly) it looks like the proposed tax-cut/economic “stimulus” package Congress is on the verge of passing will include extending ethanol subsidies in the face of any and all reason.

    Re: Cal Crackdown on Scofflaw Cyclists

    This only proves that even infrastructure is not enough to change the auto-centric mindset.

    I personally don’t mind the crackdown at Cal. I do, however, think the fines are way too high.

  • So what exactly can a cop do if he tries to give you a $220 ticket and you have no ID with you? After all, nobody is required to carry any form of ID with them, unless they’re operating a motor vehicle.

    And if you do get the ticket, and don’t pay…then what? You can;t renew the license you don’t have?
