Back in the year of 1989, I rode a bicycle from Rock Hill SC all the way to Vernal UT. 2100 miles in 31 days. I figure I consumed about 4000 calories per day. Potato chips, beanie weenies, milk shakes, peanuts, anything that provided calories. And meals from roadside reataurants. Calories. Anything.

And I have to reckon that I produced a huge amount of methane in those 31 days, perhaps not as much as the cows on the planet do, but I added my share.

So, did I harm the enviroment by burning no petro-chemical substances for a month? I moved myself most of the way across the continent with only muscle power, but it really concerns me now that I may have harmed the enviroment in the process, even worse than driving a car. I feel really guilty...
