comes from natural gas; without fertilizer we couldn't feed the world's population

2/3 of the world's electricity

comes from fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and oil)

330 hours

of pedaling to equal the energy in 1 gallon of gasoline

Even with growth

in wind and solar power, the usage of oil, natural gas, and coal goes up every year

100 bicyclists pedaling full time 

is the same amount of energy the avg. American uses in a year (309 million btu's)

40 bicyclists

pedaling to operate one air conditioner
