To some extent yes, but it’s sorta like a lesser of two evils question. All the stuff that goes into making a bike (plastic for shielding break lines, reflectors, pedals; and metal for the frame; and rubber for the tires) is going to be found on a car as well.

So the answer is yes, but do not forget how much one can accomplish with a bike in the way of quick, clean and fun transportation!
