The environment can best be served by getting rid of poor quality crap.
First off, a few hundred million humans...
You'd better watch that your argument doesn't come back to bite you.
Obama is pushing poor quality, expensive electric vehicles in the name
of the environment.
Yes. Many people think electric cars are a great value. Soon though,
some of the savings will disappear when the states start putting a road
tax by the mile to make up for lost gas tax revenue. No more free lunch.
Not at all. Fuel tax is revenue. Neither the federal or state
governments give up their cash cows willingly. If you can't tax it by
the gallon, mandate GPS trackers in every vehicle and tax them by the mile.
A current example is exempt diesel fuel for off road and farm use is
Best not have pink fuel in your Merc.
When I said "if there's no tax on the fuel", I was including other devious means of taxation per use. Hopefully if they do, they'll try to tax by charging, and I'll get round it by charging it incorrectly.
Plenty folk use pink fuel here. It's never checked unless the police know you're a farmer. So the farmers give it to their friends.
Don't take life so seriously, it's not permanent.
They don't exist, it's a scam. It is not possible to detect a TV in use, and definitely not what channel it's on, and even more impossible without CRTs.
It's the same electrons as anything else, it could be storage radiators heating up at night, it could be a marijuana plantation hidden my attic, it could be a car charging, it could be a room full of computers, they simply don't know. And they can't invade people's privacy by looking in your house without a search warrant.
Yesterday scientists in the USA revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones.
To prove their theory they fed 100 men 12 pints of beer and observed that 100% of them started talking nonsense and couldn't drive.
Since you don't need a licence to use a TV to operate your Sony Playstation or to watch bought DVDs, that technique wouldn't work anyway. They have to prove you are watching live TV (where live means shown in the last hour).
Our police aren't out of control gun maniacs like yours :-)
A car that gets 80 miles per charge is not worth buying. Even the basic electric cars quote 130 miles, and the fancy ones are 250 miles. But anyway, the thing we're discussing here is should we charge for 30 minutes, or swap batteries? You do a 700 mile journey with an 80 mile battery, and you need about 10 charges. Would you really prefer 5 hours of sitting about to 7.5 minutes?
A waiter brings the customer the steak he ordered with his thumb over the meat.
"Are you crazy?" yelled the customer, "with your hand on my steak?"
I'd really prefer filling the gas tank about three times. Anyway I need
to take a leak every so often and scrape the bugs off the windshield.
The local Triumph/Yamaha dealer is flogging Zero bikes:
Decent looking and good performance but the same problem. Other than a
commuter or an urban bar hopper, they just don't have the range. At
$10-$15K they are more competitive with standard bikes than electric
cars. The cheaper electric cars don't have the range and the ones with
minimally acceptable range are up in the $50-$70K range.
If I lived in an urban area they might be interesting. I'm sure the
neighbors would prefer a whirrrrr to the Harley firing up.
