Going to work this morning, I just rode a few traffic lights distances alongside a wonderful Renault Espace, from the last generation. Wonderful, well, you have to say that quick!... But tastes and colors... What is sure is how full of technology this car is! And riding a bicycle alongside such a technological object makes you feeling like some guy from the prehistoric era... OR makes this object totally disproportionate for commuting inside the city... I said to myself this driver has been deceived by the deceitful speech of the marketing telling him that he needs such a vehicle to move through Paris. A simple bicycle was going this morning (thanks to Christmas holidays thant emptied Parisian streets!) as fast as him without any technology, pollution, space needs, noise, money... Made me think about another liar, or an inconsistent man. Nearly two weeks ago, the COP 21 ended, with a great satisfaction from our so great president, François Hollande, declaring the planet is now saved, or nearly so. The day after, this inconssitent man went to his original region, in Tulle, in order to vote for regional elections, by plane, of course... And with all the bodyguards, presidential team and so on; which represents maybe 50 or 100 persons with him, or for him. How many cars? How much pollution for something that could have been done without moving from Paris? And would have been a responsible gesture? Certainly a good way to save the planet... We live in a really strange world...
