Jonathon Townley created this after reading Maggie Koerth-Baker’s article – Oil spill: Here’s What You Can Do to Help. Based on the WWII posters about conserving oil (so it can be used for the war effort)–his aim, however is not to conserve oil, but to eliminate its use through personal action. It’s a valid question to ask yourself. Click ‘more’ to see the WWII poster it was based on.

(btw, He has assigned this image a creative commons license so you can download the pdf and use it at will. Just click on his name above.)

I’d like to think a dependence on oil for tires wouldn’t create the disastrous situations we continue to face…..ideally we could still keep bikes around.
