Do you want #freetransit? Should this blog continue?

We need to get people to see that the autosprawl system is subsidized. A lot of things that people don't like such as traffic, pipelines, pollution, climate change, and economic waste are actually being subsidized by deferred [externalized] costs and taxes. That is like paying a high heating bill in the winter, but leaving the front door open all the time.

The most important people to reach are Americans. Because this is where autosprawl has had the most support and impact. If Americans can make a significant change away from wasting energy, that will send a strong message to the rest of the world.

You can help by tweeting blog posts that you like, or better, by blogging yourself. There is no commitment, you need not give your name, and there is no money involved. Simply send us an email at fpteditors at gmail; we will give you access. When you write or find an article or opinion that shows how cars are subsidized, the benefits of public transit, or how people are taking action, simply post a few sentences and a link. You certainly may link your own site. Even if you post only once a year, you are helping. Especially if you have specific local information.
