  • Washington Republican claims bicyclists to blame for air pollution

    KGW.com is reporting that Washington State Rep. Ed Orcutt (R–Kalama), whom the Washington House Republicans label as their "Republican transportation leader," is claiming that cyclists are to blame for air pollution. Rep. Orcutt "said in an email to bike shop owner Dale Carlson that, 'since CO2 is deemed a greenhouse gas and a pollutant, bicyclists are actually polluting when they ride.'"

    Rep. Orcutt defended his comments to Seattle Bike Blog“You would be giving off more CO2 if you are riding a bike than driving in a car."
