I frequently bring this up among the outdoor community as well. Can a professional skier really lead the charge against climate change when he or she is among the .001% of the highest polluting people on earth? Literally their job is a professional traveler (polluter) and then they also want celebrity status as a Read more

Here’s a serious idea for an article: an essay thinking about the necessary contradictions of loving cars and being a person concerned with climate change and the well-being of the world. To take it further: what does it mean to be a person of the left who loves cars, particularly internal combustion cars? What’s the Read more

All great questions. This article should be a thought exercise along the lines of “what would happen if the ban went into effect tomorrow?”

Instead, we have from-the-hip word vomit with absolutely zero critical thought put into it. Like most things Raph and Erik spit out, this take seems to be nothing more than being Read more

Doing what they’re doing is a far more complicated policy decision than you’re identifying - with plenty of complications and problems that make 2035 an aggressive deadline. Just a few of them: Read more

Poop size is more of a ratio to the weight of the pooper than a flat number, isn’t it? To a 200 lb human, a 150 lb poop would mean certain death, but to a 4000 lb car, a 150 lb poop is the equivalent to an 8 lb poop for a 200 lb human. That’s a big poop, but probably not impossible. Read more

the real problem is that they are generic looking. mask off the grill and I challenge you to tell the difference between either of these and a Kia, Hyundai, Lexus, or even a Camry.

BMW built their rep on small, light, good handling cars with a simple, but distinctive look that put function first. no one would ever Read more

Design is a reflection of its time, and we are in angry times. People are mad at the world. Mad at the pandemic. Mad at each other. Our media (movies, TV, video games) has trivialized anger and desensitized us to violence.

LOL, you act as if ICE manufacturers “making an EV” is simple and low cost! Tesla FORCED these companies, companies with a combined hundreds of billions of dollars, over 4 centuries of history and manufacturing know-how to completely do an about-face when Tesla started eating away at their marquee vehicles sales.

Exactly. The “battery day reveals” were much, much worse than the conjecture. And much worse than Musk promised over the months-of-teasing this Nothing Burger. Read more

Personally, if I were a shareholder (which I am not) I would actually be comforted by seeing Elon display some self-awareness and realism. It would be a hell of a lot less worrisome than some of the other stuff he’s said and done, like threatening to take the company private again.

I have a neighbor who drives a lifted diesel F-300000 with an exhaust outlet the diameter of a basketball, tires that stick out a foot from the fenders, tow hooks and led lights galore.... he would absolutely love that first GM design. Only I’m sure he’d want to lift it 2 feet, like his current rig is. That way he’s
