Currently there is no plan for a remuneration scheme for people who already reduce carbon levels by riding bicycles.
Although the bicycle is an existing mode of transportation its contribution is little valued as being of benefit to the environment, the community, and society.
We the undersigned wish to make clear our desire to have the Government of Australia realise that there is a need to involve cyclists whether individuals or family groups in any emission trading scheme because of the large contribution made in reducing carbon emissions.
We also feel that this contribution is worthy of being considered as having a financial value and this derived financial benefit should contribute towards alternative energy systems.
The Carbon Credits for Cyclists petition to Federal Government was written by jim barnes and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
