The strategist thinks for a moment, then responds, “I recommend the approach bicycle advocates have been using for the past 20 years; reinforce the public’s fears about your activity.”

The woman is taken aback, pauses for a moment, then says, “Oh!  You had me going there for a moment!”

“What do you mean?” asks the strategist.

“Well, you were joking, right?…”

If only.

    Thanks for calling this essay to our attention. I’ve had a chance just to skim it. But I plan to return to it for a close reading later today. My first impression is that I like what this guy has to say. I plan to comment further on his site and on Carbon Trace.
