It's not obviously practical for everyone, but I'm sure the same health benefits would be found from routine recreational cycling. My largest issue was just getting bored on my bike ride, but using an app like Strava or playing a game like Ingress/Pokemon Go definitely changed things. The main thing is to not get discouraged when you first start - but after a week or so of regular cycling the barrier to just getting out there and doing it quickly gets considerably lower.

"2. We have seen vastly higher CO2 levels in planetary history and right now we are seeing what is actually all time lows. We should expect CO2 increases and, in fact, hope for them as going much below 300 ppm would see the beginning of a massive plant die off - there's a reason commercial greenhouses pump CO2 into their facilities."

We have seen vastly higher?

When? Some time before 400,000 years ago?

We want the best and brightest to work as frightened wage slaves who won't dare ask for more money or argue with the boss. Having these people in companies that compete against their businesses is obviously a problem for them, it's sort of implying that immigrants should be relegated to the lower classes of any "civic society", possibly the middle class at best.
