There are a few carbon-hungry things that we were fairly sure would forever remain guilty pleasures: demolition derbies, foreign travel, roller coasters, etc. It's going to take a while on the first two--unless you live in a place where foreign countries are very nearby--but look out, because here's an ecogeeky, person-powered roller coaster!
Flaws that we found pretty quickly: what if someone gets to the top and doesn't want to pedal any farther? Also, what if someone's a real speed demon behind a plodder? Do you run into one another? Do I smell pedal-powered, demolition derby roller coasters!?
Final problem, we are pansies; just look at the photos here. And check out this amazing Google Translation Japanese Fear Poetry:
When you row, the body moving, we fear!
It may become firm---Courage is shaken, squeezing!
We would like to close the eye, when with so it does, excess we fear,â€¦
Going to there, returning turning, if it is not densely, it does not end
