Interview: Ed on Vancouver’s green movement, bikes and more

One of the most insane things I’ve witnessed for many years – and I don’t know how I’d explain it to intelligent life in the universe that landed here – is this: “There’s this guy here who drove his BMW 10 or 15 miles to the gymnasium. He walks inside – and what does he do once he gets there? He gets on a bicycle and pedals, going nowhere. And what do we do with that energy? Nothing.”
