Seriously, fuck narrow minded people like you who only see the bad side of personal transportation.
What you need to realize is that the availability of cheap energy and the development of personal transportation have contributed more than anything to the progress of Western civilization in the 20th century and the corresponding rise in life expectancy. In only 100 years, life expectancy in the US has risen from 47 to 76. Personal transportation is what enables a modern society to work, and without it it would collapse.
It's also not about one dude not wanting to give up his comfort, you have to look at the bigger picture. All the alternatives you mention are never going to be a suitable alternative for everyone. For instance, public transit is already near its peak capacity in my country (Belgium), yet it only supports 10-15% of the daily traffic, depending on whose figures you believe. Physically it's simply impossible to make trains and busses go from every place to every other place, on a reasonable time and at a reasonable cost. And mopeds and motorcycles? Are you kidding me? They are dangerous, uncomfortable and not all that environmentally friendly either.
Either way, at the end of the day, people are going to choose the mode of transportation that works best for them and you can't blame them if in most cases that happens to be a car.
Is this sustainable in the long term? No, it's not because eventually we will run out of oil, and we WILL need real alternatives. However, I believe that this problem will resolve itself economically. In the future oil prices will continue to rise, and at some point in time it will get so expensive that the alternatives become more attractive, and they will gain traction. That is when people will start to switch, not sooner. Until then ... let everyone use what works best for them.
Another thing I strongly believe in is that we shouldn't just focus on changing our mode of transportation, but we should also focus on making transportation less needed. For instance, I have a 90km one way daily commute. I could just as easily do most of my work from home or from a satelite office closer to home, all I need is a laptop and a network connection, but my employer insists that everyone works centralized and that my physical presence is required. There are many people just like me. Work on changing that mentality, and you will not only do good for the environment but you will also actually improve people's lives.
