The coronavirus has made things worse in their minds. With industry slowed way down the measurable levels went down and now the snowflakes say we should keep it this way. I don't know where they expect any of their stuff to come from if the whole world stays at 50%

Re: Global Warming...


Well they expect it to come from the govt. But the govt doesn't even know where they are going to steal it from anymore because I"m sure tax revenue has dropped off a cliff.

Re: Global Warming...


So California has decided in their infinite wisdom, to "require", how is anybodies guess, that 55% of big rigs, medium duty trucks, and pickups, be electric or hydrogen...You know, "green" fuel, by the year 2035.


Try to count how many ways this is beyond F^%kt up.

1- Tesla is laughing all the way to the bank. They pretty much said so. First, Cali requires every one to buy a 2011 or newer truck, to meet current emission standards, now to buy an even newer truck. All for the environment, of course.

2- How the hell is burning fuel "somewhere else" to create electricity, so much better than burning it at the point of use?

3- What are they going to do during Public Safety Power Shut-offs? How are they going to charge all the trash truck and delivery vans?

4- Where's all the Lithium going to come from, when they've finished pissing off China to the point where don't want our worthless dollars anymore?

It cracks me up when people call California a "Socialist" state. It's the exact opposite. It's the most corporate, elitist state out there. Makes laws that do nothing but benefit the corporations, and the citizens of the state can go to hell.

Even their so-called concern for immigrants is nothing more than a way to keep them coming in here, so California's unsustainable agriculture system can continue to make billions for the processors, while the people and the farmers get F**&ed.


Governor Newsom is a Getty, FFS....




Had to get that rant out of the way, since I was reminded talking about old cars.

Re: Global Warming...


2. Burning fuel somewhere else to produce electricity is easier to control because it's one source. It can be contained and managed much easier and restrictions can be placed and forced when necessary. You can't do that with a couple million different cars and trucks.

Re: Global Warming...


Perhaps.

But if you want to get away from un-sustainability and pollution, the solution is to not have cities like we have, filled with millions upon millions of people, endlessly motoring to worthless jobs.

The solution would be to get back to to an agrarian life, based primarily around small family farms.

Not high rises in overcrowded cities with useless activities, and then thinking that electric cars will be the solution.

It's not, it's just more of the same f*^&kery, and hoping this time it'll work out.

Switch to small/family farm agrarian economy, and it all comes crashing down. Per capita GDP tanks.

Another quick look. $3T budget, 300M people. $10K per year for every man, woman, and child.

Re: Global Warming...


True.

But the problem lies with the country and the society that has created the problem, not the solution.


Besides, you eliminate all the lawyers, politicians, bankers, and corporate executives, and suddenly the money the average citizen makes, will go to pay for something actually useful.


The country is crashing. Right now. Under the weight of its own affluence. Whether there will be anything left will depend on those who choose to do something different, rather than the same old thing, expecting a different result, like the classic insane person.

Rivian, Ford, Chevy, MB, and everyone will have an electric by 2035. I hope I'm not still driving my 2013 Tundra by then!

Because you don't have to burn fuel to generate electricity. You can of course, but you could also get it from solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, tidal, etc.

Yeah, that's a good one, but having 20 gallons of explosive liquid under your butt isn't that much better especially if the gas station is shut down. I guess if you've got solar panels then you'd be able to charge up as needed.

South America. That's where most of it comes from now and the process is pretty mellow compared to any of the other mining and extraction methods for gas, oil, and coal.

Cities are actually a lot more sustainable than suburbs, exurbs, and even living out in the middle of nowhere. Much less infrastructure needed per person in the city. In a city one hundred people need a couple blocks of sidewalks to walk to a store, while in the boonies a couple people need a hundred miles of road to get to a store.

What if you don't want to live in a city? You don't want to be forced to farm, but you're okay with forcing people in the city?

Re: Global Warming...


It's not about the environment with the left it's about oil companies and the billions made from it.

Always look at the resentment and loathing capitalism angle and you'll get the motives behind every Lefty.

You grow food in the cities? They'd be dead in a few weeks.
