Today's "Ride" column features George Zrust, who decided along with his wife Nancy Sreenan to try going without their car for the summer. It's an interesting experiment to live up to your own environmental ideals and try to do without America's favorite way to travel.
George has run a blog about his car-free summer, which includes an interesting essay about how it can feel so useless to try to do what you can to help the environment, when you know China and India are buying up cars like it's 1958 in the U.S. The essay makes a great argument about why it's good for the individual to do what he can, despite the rest of the world.
