Can we live without oil?
Back to question

Exercise inducing transportation is healthier than using oil powered transportation

Different modes of transportation such as walking and bicycling are a great way of exercising. If society made these modes of transportation the main way of getting to and from, everyone would be healthier.

The Argument

Cars are a big part of basic human needs. In 2016, there were an estimated amount of 1.4 billion cars being driven worldwide.[1] But civilization can survive without cars. Walking and bike riding are healthy alternatives to using oil fueled cars.

Counter arguments

Replacing cars entirely is a bad idea. In India, the country is having an issue getting an ambulance to people in trouble due to their bad roads.[2] Without ambulances entirely, there would be a crisis of people not getting to the hospital fast enough.



[P1] Cars are important in society. [P2] There are over 1.4 billion cars used in the world. [P3] Bicycle riding and walking can replace cars.

Rejecting the premises

[Rejecting P3] Replacing cars with walking and bicycle riding will harm society.
