    Articles re Tesla—Fact or Fiction?

    Why are people waiting at Costco gas stations instead of buying Teslas?

    Even the cheapest Tesla is WAY out of the price range of the average consumer in this country.

    I can't afford a Lexus any more than I can afford the current crop of Teslas.

    Prediction: Coal has fallen. Nuclear is next then Oil.

    Then there's the desperation of RW governments who don't give a flying f about the world, and companies who don't give a flying f except about making a quick buck. "Hey, let's build MORE coal mines, and ignore the fact that there's no market for the coal." Let's pretend the few jobs will be a...

    Green New Deal

    And the rich don't pay FICA taxes. You must not be talking about Paul Krugman, because he calls for the same thing as me.

    Green New Deal

    Incorrect. The lower classes don't pay federal taxes in the US. The middle class use tax cuts to pay off debt, which is money already spent. Therefore tax cuts don't do anything to stimulate the economy. As for corporate taxes. Governments around the world have been cutting taxes for 50...

    Green New Deal

    Not only are tax cuts not a fiscal stimulus, it's my position that they're a drag on the economy. Every time any government cuts taxes, they have less revenue. Inevitably the deficit hawks, looking on strangling any progress in society start screaming about the balancing the budget, and...

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    The world's governments plan to produce more than double the amount of coal, oil and gas in 2030 than would be consistent with curbing global warming, the United Nations and research groups said on Wednesday in the latest warning over climate change. Some of the largest fossil fuel producers...

    Induction Stoves

    I may not be a professional chef, but I absolutely hate the gas stove in my current place. It seems like a lot of wasted heat, plus it's a greenhouse gas.

    The real purpose of the tri-motor Cybertruck

    I have a need for a vehicle with 500+ miles range. My job takes me into rural Alberta where there is 0 fast charging infrastructure, and no plans to build any. I can't afford the tri-motor cybertruck. So that makes me SOL for going for a BEV in the near-future.

    Use your car's lights

    It's not just the EV drivers. About 30% of the cars here, and there are very few EVs, don't have their lights on at night.

    Tesla Owners in Alberta

    So, work sent me out of town last week. After pulling out of Costco and heading out of the city, I swear I had a Model Y behind me. Blacked out chrome, looked taller than Model 3.

    Electric Vehicle Jobs

    I remember the claim that the Keystone XL pipeline would create 1,000,000 jobs. When looking at the prediction it said it got ridiculous. It would create economic activity, so x number of artists would have artistic grants and therefore jobscreated.

    Nuclear power

    The government is close to giving the green light to a new nuclear power station at Sizewell in Suffolk. The BBC has learned that talks with the Sizewell contractor, EDF, have intensified in recent weeks. This comes after the collapse of projects in Anglesey and Cumbria when Japanese firms...

    Canadian Leaf Owners are Frustrated

    You might think that Nissan, the first car-maker to achieve widespread success with a zero-emissions electric vehicle, cares deeply about the environment. But Clayton Brander isn't so sure. Three years ago, the Powell River, B.C., resident chose to buy a used 2013 Nissan Leaf, motivated by a...

    Winter Tire waiting room

    I get my tires put on by Costco every year. The days of going in at 5 or 6AM and waiting in line are over. They're doing appointments only now, unless you're a lucky one or two person a day. I made an appointment, then was told by work that they're sending me out of town this week. So I was...

    Is $10K too much?

    Too rich for my blood. I have no intention of ever sending my car out to be a "robotaxi." He's basing the price of $10K on the the notion that everyone will jump on it and send their cars out. I don't think it's worth it.

    Nuclear power

    Prediction: Coal has fallen. Nuclear is next then Oil.

    The Beeb misses the point. They're arguing a strawman argument. Their premise is the only objection, that anybody would have towards nuclear, is that it's toxic. No, the main arguments are that it's too damned expensive, and takes too long to build. Nuclear power: Are we too anxious about...

    The Longest Range EVs In The World

    Even Tesla's fast charging network doesn't go into the rural areas, where I need to go for work. Even in the longest range Tesla, I would be able to get to where I'm going, but wouldn't be able to get back home.

    Speeding Tesla driver caught napping behind the wheel on Alberta highway

    Didn't put it into Alberta owners, because the owner of the Tesla is actually from BC. Alberta RCMP have charged a 20-year-old B.C. man for speeding while asleep at the wheel of a Tesla electric car. RCMP got a call around 4 p.m. on July 9 about a 2019 Tesla Model S speeding south on Highway...

    Prediction: Coal has fallen. Nuclear is next then Oil.

    Prediction: Coal has fallen. Nuclear is next then Oil.

    But for some reason the Alberta government has an idea that the demand for coal is growing, and therefore implemented a plan of closing provincial parks and converting them to mountaintop removal coal mines.

    Green New Deal

    This begs the question. Why does the US fund public schools by the local property taxes of the local neighbourhoods it serves? You are the only country that I am aware of that does this. This system will guarantee that the poorer neighbourhoods of the US will have crappy schools, while the...
