100% agreed. I really, truly hope California can make this work. And I think it’s possible - but, as others have said - this needs to be more than just an aspirational political message a month before an election. There needs to be follow up legislation, and resource prioritization, and serious, hard work done to make Read more

Yes.  On every emotional, physical, psychological and existential level.

God.... damn that is a gorgeous color. I want it with white racing stripes.  Even on a Bronco, and I don’t care what anyone says.

I once improvised something similar back in college. A friend of mine had managed to get his Acura (Father’s a lawyer, don’t you know!) stuck in a snowbank and turned the snow under his wheel to ice through liberal use of the gas pedal when trying to extract himself. I think I ended up using his window scraper, jammed Read more

Extreme, unhelpful positions exist on all sides of the spectrum. I am a dedicated centrist on almost every matter. Which also means almost everyone thinks I’m a dumbass. Read more

Fair enough - most of my conservative friends seem to have very little use for science.  But, assuming you’re right, that anthropogenic climate change is some sort of fraud perpetrated by not-for-profit groups and environmentalists, what about the other, myriad of ways, that our carbon and fossil fuel based energy Read more

You would lose that bet. And please, for the sake of clarity, could you explain to me why concern about the environment is a “liberal” ideology.

Nonsense.  That Ferrari is neither brown, nor a wagon.  And it doesn’t even have a manual transmission.

Yea, that’s true. But as someone with limited money, virtue signaling around the environmental impacts of the rich is one of the few things that gives me joy.

Shouldn’t have it been “8" then?  To signify that you’re last relationship, and the only one that will work, is going to be with your material possessions?

Don’t forget: for a car that single-handedly pumps more CO2 and pollutants into the air than a fleet of electric cars and can be used for literally nothing besides going fast and looking cool.

Maybe the discerning European gentleman driver was just a fan of the ‘61 Yankees?

So a massive increase in unemployment, and electrical systems that can’t keep up with the demand aren’t relevant issues? Read more

Yep. This was my first thought too. If I’m buying an EV right now, it’s a used Leaf in the $10 000 range, and I’m using it only for around town chores. And I’m buying it on the assumption that it’ll be worthless as soon as the new crop of EV arrive in the next “now” to 5 years.

20% of all carbon emissions of a society is a hell of a lot. It’s significant. It deserves it’s own policy approach to curb. No one is saying that it’s the only answer, or that it will even, on its own, solve the climate crisis. Read more

Maybe.  Maybe not - but this is an Executive Order - lets see how the legislation changes in the near future.  In any case - 15 years isn’t a stunt - it’s a foundation for what, I hope, will be a lot of work between then and now.

So I feel like we’re in agreement then? All this couldn’t be done now. California needs time to figure out the details - and 15 years will hopefully be time. Read more
