Re: Madness. Why such slow penetration for hybrid?

That coal is enjoying a renaissance because a handful of mines in one U.S. state have resumed production as evidence of some politician or other who is going to "save" democracy and take back a country for the people by destroying the tyrants at the U.S. EPA who "hate freedom" and have gotten far t...

Re: Madness. Why such slow penetration for hybrid?

Things are looking up because it won't be long before human-driven cars are no longer allowed on public roads. At that point, it won't matter any more what fuel they run on, which means they'll pretty much all be electric for normal city use, because that's most economical and sensible. Your commen...

Re: gas price thread

Just the facts. You seem to have a bit of an allergy to facts. Okay, you made me start another history lesson on you. Saudi Arabia is a monarchy.

Re: gas price thread

So you give kudos to the Saudis because they let their women drive. And their government makes lots off their oil, and gives that money to its people to keep them happy. And that's good. But you are against socialism. Whatever floats your boat, I guess. No guessing at all. Just the facts. Okay, you...

As you tree huggers stuble through life thinking EVs are the current answer presently, the rest of us fuel up and drive where ever we want to, without worry. You all think you're saving the planet, fine I say, it just saves more fossil fuel for the rest of us. It doesn't mount to a hill of beans. Al...

None of all this matters. We have at least 150 years of nat gas, more oil reserves than Saudi Arabia, fossil fuel is cheap. And too many people are surviving to old age!

Why do you bother with the tree huggers. Wind and solar are a joke in the scheme of things. All you huggers won't listen to reason anyway. So, keep charging your battery with fossil fuels. Oh yeah, Trump is going to drill, drill, drill. You haven't seen anything yet! We have more nat gas then ever b...
