same applies to wind farms. Everyone says that they are so great for the environment and clean energy this and that. Well they also kill over 500k birds per year in the US alone. No gives a flying crap about that. However, if 12 geese land in an oil sands tailing pond in Canada well that is just inhuman and the oil industry should be shut down for that....

Ugh you soundbite eating moron.

Each litre of petrol burnt emits 2kg of C02.
We burn 800 million litres of petrol a day.

Thats 1.6 million tons of C02 entering the atmosphere a day.

Imagine what a 1,600,000,000 kg block of carbon looks like, then put 365 next to each other and thats what we do every year.

And you think the by-products of new energy are the greater of 2 evils?

By-products:

https://www.instituteforenergyresearch.org/...act-of-lithium-batteries/

The lithium extraction process uses a lot of water—approximately 500,000 gallons per metric ton of lithium. To extract lithium, miners drill a hole in salt flats and pump salty, mineral-rich brine to the surface. After several months the water evaporates, leaving a mixture of manganese, potassium, borax and lithium salts which is then filtered and placed into another evaporation pool. After between 12 and 18 months of this process, the mixture is filtered sufficiently that lithium carbonate can be extracted.

South America’s Lithium Triangle, which covers parts of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile, holds more than half the world’s supply of the metal beneath its salt flats. But it is also one of the driest places on earth. In Chile’s Salar de Atacama, mining activities consumed 65 percent of the region’s water, which is having a large impact on local farmers to the point that some communities have to get water elsewhere.

In Australia and North America, lithium is mined from rock using chemicals to extract it into a useful form. In Nevada, researchers found impacts on fish as far as 150 miles downstream from a lithium processing operation.

Lithium extraction harms the soil and causes air contamination.

In Australia, only two percent of the country’s 3,300 metric tons of lithium-ion waste is recycled.

There have been a number of fires at recycling plants where lithium-ion batteries have been stored improperly, or disguised as lead-acid batteries and put through a crusher.

It is estimated that between 2021 and 2030, about 12.85 million tons of EV lithium ion batteries will go offline worldwide, and over 10 million tons of lithium, cobalt, nickel and manganese will be mined for new batteries.

Cobalt is found in huge quantities in the Democratic Republic of Congo and central Africa where it is extracted from the ground by hand, using child labor, without protective equipment.

Where does the electricity used to recharge batteries come from?

How much will it cost to trade my fluffty combustion engine for a new electric mini me 45 mph clown car?

Ko - No, child labor is abhorrent, and should be addressed in all industries, including the Oil and Gas industry which also has elements of child labor.

Gonzo - Unfortunate for those local impacts to occur, but it pales in comparison to the local, and global impacts extraction and use of fossil fuels create.
The numbers around disposal are big but compared to the 6 billion tons of c02 we'll emit into the atmosphere in tiny little particles from using fossil fuels in that period, it's not a drop in the ocean.

Requiem - Electricity can come from many sources that don't directly pollute, Nuclear, Hydro, Wind, Solar.
That said, it's widely accepted that burning coal in a power plant to charge an EV creates 1/4 as much emissions as burning petrol to move the same car.

Major - Not sure if that's sarcasm, but if not, I'd encourage you to think about what is best for our species or your decedents, over the next 100 or 1000 years, rather than what's best for you now.

fluff Tesla, they're another scam EV manufacturer that claims to be clean energy when in fact are dirtier than our government claiming they care about the environment all while funding foreign wars, seriously, you're all being played by the corporate overlords that run the world, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out an EV that doesn't need to be plugged to a wall or station, there's something called alternator, it charges batteries as you drive your vehicle, why the fluff do these scams....errr...EV need to be plugged into a wall to feed them energy being made with coal??????? See, it's all a scam, EV burn Coal, that's pollution too Hungry, it too is a fossil fuel...

I like EVs because a lot of them are full of tech and they are fun to drive. Make an EV so good ppl will demand one!

I think an alternator would have to be too big to keep it charged. Most of them do have regenerative tech in it such as when you break.

Big as in size? No absolutely not, have you seen the latest generators made for when the power goes out at your house? Some even are solar, like I said, EV that need plugs to charge from Coal are a scam.

1) Just curious, with 1.6 million tons of CO2 entering the atmosphere each day, how much CO2 is being absorbed by plant life on earth? Not just trees but, all plant life needs CO2. Without the CO2, the plant life could not produce the oxygen we need to breath.

2) Was the "industrial Revolution" the cause for the "dust bowl"? https://www.history.com/...reat-depression/dust-bowl

3) Common sense answer to "Global Warming". Yes it is real and has been taking place since the end of the "ice age". It has been warming ever since. Eleventy-two years ago, when I was in Elementary School, we were actually sent to school to become educated. We learned that as the planet warms, water evaporates and forms clouds. Clouds filter heat from the sun. Then it rains, again providing cooling, and the cycle continues.

My career was in nuclear power having directed the initial startup of 2 out of the last 5 new nuclear plants in the USA. I have also been on the Council of Energy Advisors for over 20 years.

In summary, stop destroying plant life (Ex. rain forest), build more nukes (2 new nukes preparing for initial startup in Wayneboro, GA) New nuke technology being prepped in Washington State and Wyoming. Even West Virginia, where I live, lifted the ban on nuclear power in February of this year. Ad finally, get educated! Stop drinking the Kool-aid.

Hey KOH, kinda within the same topic 2 points. 1 the new Ford Mustang MACH E looks weird as a Mustang. Drove one, it’s actually fast. So, mom was a union boss and engineer at ford, she signed one of the last 500 Mustang COBRA SVT engines. But I guess a cell needs replaced every 5-7 years depending on driving and cost $3000-5000 every 5-7 years but they have to replace 2 as they’re connected.

Second: at work, I’ve responded to sheeetz gas stations on the west side where all the yuppies live. Their check volts, teslas, etc. we’ve assisted the fire department a dozen times on my shift alone in a month due to fire at sheetz. And 27 times in 59 days to total home fires in garages at night lol - I don’t understand the exact reason, but taking out a whole house does wonders for enviornmemt.

Lastly, question. So if you buy one, and you want to drive from Cleveland to Miami. Do I literally need to stop and charge for an hour or so just to go 4-5 hours? That’s a 20+ hour drive. I know even Fords new small entry level trucks that way.

I know a lot about my work etc but know nothing on this topic if anyone can tell me anything of the questions/comments/observations above.

Thoughts? Legit answers?
