Are electric cars better for the environment? Not a chance.

The other benefit is centralizing the emissions.  By moving tailpipe emissions to the source of the electrical production, you dramatically improve air quality in high density areas or areas that have historical smog issues (Mountain areas with inversions, etc).

Pretty low on my list of life's priorities.  LOL

Not to mention cutting down on the need for pipelines which spill MILLIONS of gallons all over the country contaminating our land and water. Especially native American lands.

Conservatives also have delusions of a meritocracy and earning everything. Which in an advanced society, it's strange that everything humans need to survive- food, shelter, healthcare- are not provided to everyone.

LOL.  I guess you told me!  Not hardly.  Sorry, no bunker.  At least not yet that is, but the way things are going......

Be sure to let me know when they've ironed all the kinks out of electric cars.  The fuckers have been discussed since at least the 70's and they're STILL not practical and won't be any time soon - if ever.  The "big transition" will be something to watch for sure - and laugh at/about.

Great idea! Let's have that oil transported by trucks and railcars instead.

Let's just keep it in the ground. Problem solved. 

Have you ever heard don't shit where you eat?

Using fossil fuels is shitting where you eat. 

We live on a floating sphere with no where else to go. Yet people like you are okay with polluting it because tHe EcOnOmy! 

I guess if you believe Jesus is going to come back and take the chosen few back to Sky Land, you dont give a fuck. Right?

Not an option at this point. As soon as technology is released that makes oil obsolete we're stuck with what we have to run on but I would love for some guy to come out with a car that runs on salt water or something so we could do away with the oil industry. Same thing for power. I'm actually a huge fan of hydroelectric but no one seems to want to build more of them because fish will die or something.

As for your atheist beliefs....

When that technology is released, right wing media that is funded by big oil will use propaganda against it and you'll gobble it up like the rest of it.

I love oil/fossil fuels since I own a lot of mineral rights.  High gas prices are fine with me.  LOL.  I'll pay whatever at the pump, since I make out in the long run.  :classic_biggrin:

You'll also have access to it when your shit hole democrat run city decides to turn off its power grid.  :niterider:

Great point.  I have an awful feeling about a transition to electric cars.  Plus, how in the hell are the rednecks going to rev their engines ???

I doubt they'll bother with that shit.  They'll find a way to get their own petrol.  Never underestimate the ingenuity of a redneck.  :niterider:

Seriously. You don't see it happening right now? My direct next door neighbor has had a Chevy bolt for several years. Drives it from Virginia to Canada every year. Not less than three other friends of mine within a 1 mile radius have Teslas as their primary mode of transportation. The revolution is here my friend. The kinks are getting ironed out more and more. Most grocery stores around here now have charging stations in their parking lots. You realize that most trips are well under the range limits of today's electric cars? Battery technology is advancing every day. Why fight the inevitable? What is your stake in fossil fuels? I certainly hope that gasoline is around for quite some time still as I drive a Grand National and would like to enjoy it for years to come, but for commuting, my next car will be electric. Electric trucks have the advantage of being able to carry massive battery loads. Trucks are the most practical vehicles right now.

Sorry, guy.  We're still a long way from anywhere near the majority of cars being electric.  Yes, I see a few around and I'm sure the number is slowly growing.  This is not right around the corner, though.  Coming?  Sure, I guess.  Soon?  Nope.  Wait and see.  The drawbacks and problems remain plentiful.  Been hearing this same stuff for decades now.

Battery technology has not been been near what it was in past decades. It has finally caught up. Batteries have more range now than a full tank of gas. Sure it's slower to charge than fill a tank but how often do you use a full tank of gas on a single trip? The practicality is present now. Many work places and shopping centers even offer free charging. Fuel up for free. What's not to like about that? Much less maintenance and replacement parts are plug and play.

You can get a charging station installed in your garage. The car stops charging once the battery is full.

Oh, I didn't realize that Big Oil strictly funds the right and that you actually believe that. 😂

My buddy just got a Tesla and I won't lie...I now want one myself. 

I'm fine with going with electric vehicles, but not at the cost of intentionally crippling the oil industry and making it so that people with meager incomes are forced to either get gouged at the pump, or buy a car they can't afford.

There's also the fact that China absolutely dominates the rare earth mineral market where these batteries are manufactured. If we were large producers of these batteries and had a sizeable share of REM, then I'd be more for it.

I'm cool with doing things to help the planet be more clean and eco friendly, but it can't be ridiculously overpriced, and it must be as reliable as the energy we are accustomed to.

Get back to me when they can meet those marks

See my previous post.

You see the world through a totalitarian socialist prism and have no concerns for the needs of others.   Even the needs of the society as a whole. 

A gas fill takes minutes.

You consider over 1300 leaks and over 9 million gallons spilled from US pipelines since 2010 safe?

You must eat paint chips too.
