Don't fall into Kevin's troll hole.

If he finds something that doesn't fit into his very narrow worldview, he picks at you like a scab until you give up. He'll often cite data which has been gathered unscientifically and tout it as an absolute fact. If that fails, and he is still challenged, he falls onto his sword like a martyr with one of three defenses, which if further challenged are manufactured to make you look like nothing more than a complete villain.

If you don't believe Kevin's transparency in all this, look here:

For the politics, I recommend a three-pronged strategy:

Focus on child safety. Few people will come out in favour of children being either crushed to death or poisoned to death by car drivers.

2, Focus on how good it is to live in the new city. Videos of cities that have actually done it are helpful. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. When people can see just how good it is, that helps!

Never let a good crisis go to waste. Look at the largest six oil exporters. Think none of them is going to have a revolution or other political instability in the short term? A revolution in Saudi Arabia will end car culture overnight. Political instability in any of the other top six will severely strain car culture. When the crisis inevitably comes, we will be the only ones with a feasible plan to deal with it. Take advantage of this!

He is nothing more than a professional victim, and a liability to this (otherwise) very reputable website.
