A swami belongs to a religious order. Your poor temper is betraying your ignorance.

Trucks can and ought to be replaced by rail where appropriate, and where not, they can and should use cleaner fuels. In any case, as a commercial transportation they ought to pay the full cost of the infrastructure and the pollution and health issues they contribute to and if I need to pay more for my bicycle, I will. I will save on gas, insurance, and ultimately my taxes.

Car drivers are like smokers. They engage in an activity that is unhealthy for them, their family, and society at large and they demand everyone else contribute to the costs of their unhealthy (and destructive) lifestyle but get angry and defensive when asked to be nothing more onerous than merely responsible.
