    Dear Mike Vandeman,

    I am 16 i ride a mountain bike, i have friends who part-take
    in racing mountainbikes. Many people throughout the world
    mountain bike.

    Reading your letter i was rather surprised, that you
    compared a mountainbike which has the equivilant of 2cm
    squared of rubber on the mud at one point, is causing more
    destruction than the brazilians cutting down the

    I do not see what your arguement is based on. You havent
    been rashional with your arguement. You have chosen a sport
    which obviously you haven't spent anytime looking into, or
    learning the slightest about. How would something run by the
    own human body cause more damage to the environment than a
    car, lorry, any form of transportation.

    Are beavers destroying the habitat of other animals? Well
    from how mal-informed you were about mountainbiking i could
    see you judging animals as a threat to themselves.

    I am afraid to say that your time was wasted, due to your
    arguement being mal-informed, badly researched and i would
    expect better from someone with a PHD.

    Your sincerly, hope you realise the flaws in your arguement
