No, the problem is we have seen the lies too often. Promises made but never kept. Like I pointed out, they promoted the Saturn with its near indestructible body panels and talked of recycling BUT it turned out it just wasn’t feasible.
Factor in the mining of Lithium for these batteries and it gets worse.
Consider this: Many years ago, a study was made of the impact of electric cars. If every car in NYC changed to electric and they charged ONLY at night when there is usually a surplus of electricity, there would be brownouts and blackouts!
IF you want something more environmentally friendly, consider Hydrogen fuel cell cars. Break down water into oxygen ( for hospitals etc) and hydrogen for cars. Pollution from the car is ZERO as it is only water vapor! The Japanese (Honda) and Europeans (Mercedes) have had cars on the road. Only problem is refueling is not convenient.

Wearing your underwear rightside out one day and inside out the next has advantages. You only wash half as often and you find out who your real friends are.
Question: Is Abner Kadaver really dead and gone?
I doubt it. Usually the response to a question like that is, “Well, it will work itself out in time.” Remember Saturn cars with the virtually indestructible bodywork. I read that the body panels were un recyclable.
Also I worry that the mining of the materials is often done un substandard conditions.
BTW did you know one of the richest countries in the world for the lithium batteries is …… Afghanistan. I know they will be happy to work with us and supply our needs.
Russia is a primary source of platinum which is in every catalytic converter.
So Russia, China, and Afghanistan are all our enemies and they have vital resources we need. Now what can go wrong?
I think we are losing the war because this war isn’t with bullets and tanks but rather with resources and money.
You sound just like Joe. I may be conservative (I am economically, liberal socially), But I wish simple cartoon din’t turn in political rants. If you look back, I don’t initiate them but respond to the ongoing discussion.
The avatar is in relation to a specific topic, not broad politics. I am a proud American who supports and defends our Constitution.
Yes I get material form Fox but I also get information from BBC, USAToday, and other sources.
So as Joe says, “Come on man!”
there was a story written about the end for Calvin. Susie was his wife and they had children and grandchildren. Calvin has a grandchild a lot like him. I won’t spoil it but a good read.
Same here, love the show.
Considering how in those times there was no calendar remotely related to ours, then their age is is undetermined.
BTW, have you seen Joe’s latest. He wants the banks to report transactions over $600. Supposedly he is after tax fraud as he raised taxes on the wealthy. $600 transactions will impact a lot more than the top 5% (who by the way pay more than their fair share of taxes.)
Do the Wealthy pay their fair share? No, they pay much more! According to a Congressional Budget Office report, the top 1% of earners paid an average federal tax rate of 32% in 2017. Tax rates that year declined with income, with the poorest 20% paying an average tax rate of 1%. The Tax Policy Center found similar results. In 2018, the top 1% of income earners — those who earned more than $540,000 — earned 21% of all U.S. income while paying 40% of all federal income taxes, according to a Tax Foundation analysis. The group paid more in income taxes, about $615 billion, than the bottom 90% of taxpayers combined, or $440 billion.The top 10% earned 48% of the income and paid 71% of federal income taxes, the data showed.The share of taxes shouldered by the nation’s richest individuals has climbed over time.In 2001, for example, the top 1% accounted for 33.2% of the nation’s individual income taxes, according to the Tax Foundation. From 2001 to 2018, the share paid by the bottom 50% of taxpayers fell to 3% from 4.9%.
