BWC: The Auto Club That Doesn't Want You To Drive

(Especially You, Nick Parrett of Norwalk, CT. FYI, Pottery Barn Doesn't Have a Drive-Thru.)

Better World Offers a 10% Discount to New Members Who Use Public Transportation! (And a 5% Discount Each Year They Renew!)


As if offering the nation's only bicycle roadside assistance wasn't weird enough, Better World Club continues to challenge the very definition of "auto club" by offering a 10% discount to new members who use public transportation.

Mass transit is a much greener option to single-occupant automobiles, so we want to encourage it's use as much as possible.

How does one take advantage of this generous offer? Why, it's so simple, even a Sagittarius could figure it out*. All you have to do is fax (866-546-1117) or email (club@betterworldclub.com) a copy of a mass transit monthly pass to us, along with your contact info, and then we'll call you and get you signed up.

Click here to contact customer service if you have any questions.

*This is obviously a joke. People lucky enough to be born a Sagittarius aren't dumb at all. It's the Aries-Cancer cusps who are the real nitwits.

Traditionally, fuel prices rise in the spring, and this year is no exception. Gasoline prices have thus far seen the largest jump since our last report.

Do you have an unnatural interest in fuel prices? Are you a fan of tables filled with important-looking numbers? If so, we recommend finding a healthier hobby (seeking out "the most perfect" spiderweb delicately bejeweled with iridescent dew drops and then karate-chopping it, etc.) or you can feed your fetish by checking out BWC's previous Alternative Fuel Report 'The Cabal of Dutch-Descended, Left-Handed, Southern Baptist Postal Workers who Secretly Run the World Continue to Allow Fuel Prices to Drop' as published in the March 25th edition of 'Kicking Asphalt'.

Oil Companies Go Green? Greenopia Ranks Them for Sustainability

By Starre Vartan
Greenopia.com

Greenopia has just ranked all the major oil companies for their eco friendliness; check out the results! Now, we all know that fossil fuels aren't the way to go. Not only are they a nonrenewable resource (meaning we're going to run out of them sooner or later, and many think we've hit Peak Oil already) but our dependence on them has led to more than one international conflict (to say the least) AND when we burn them, they release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, causing global warming. And burning them is kind of stinky, no? Complete Story
