Peak Oil has arrived. If you are not familiar with the term, it means that worldwide, oil production is at its peak and will begin to decline. This will translate into rising oil and food prices.
In the very near future, we may be very sorry to have pulled up train tracks. Now is not the time to be ripping up even more tracks.
I enjoy bike riding and appreciate the good intentions behind turning rails into trails. However, I urge Mike Hein to reconsider this particular initiative.
Very truly yours,
