Something to think about on your next morning cycle commute: How much pollution are you breathing? and are you any better off than if you were driving?
I don’t have to deal with too much pollution here in New Orleans. At least I don’t think I do. I base this on the simple observation that we don’t have smog days like they do in other cities like Austin or St. Louis (they both have hills to trap the air), but that could just be because New Orleans is not as aware of environmental issues.
