In other words, fuel efficiency alone is

going to get us there.

This part was funny:
"Cycling permits shorter trips, allowing a cyclist to cover a shorter distance yet still arrive at the same destination. Even when origin and destination are the same, the bicycle and, say, the car often take different routes, with the car trip being a few percentage points longer than a bicycle. This difference is because systems do not always have the same network density."

In the US the opposite is true. For example, my car-commute (back when I still had a car) wss 7 miles, but my bike commute (back when I had a commute) was 9 miles.

This problem is so common that I've long thought of the extra length of convoluted routes I ride as a tax.
