At the risk of inciting the usual you-know-what, such as just got the thread I was going to post this in shut down ....

This AP story is remarkably well balanced -- with the notable exception that it neglects the issue of biofuels entirely. That topic has been conspicuous by its absence lately. I guess it's just too difficult for people.

Anyway, my general point is that, whatever you may happen to think, it is simple fact that we are now officially under the ancient Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times."

Naw, same ol same ol. Oil industry windfall profits while consumers are screaming goes a long way to people wanting something different. "ExxonMobil reported a net profit of $5.5 billion, more than doubling its earnings from the year-ago period. Shell notched its strongest quarterly profit ever, and Chevron posted its best earnings quarter in nearly a decade."https://www.businessinsider.com/gas...ocketing-energy-sector-earnings-charts-2022-5 Remember, the average schlub driving to work doesn't care what is under the hood, what powers it, who made it, or what grey-haired hot rodders think about it. All they care about is how much it empties his wallet to operate it. They are not like us and could care less if 40 year old cars disappeared. You could convince them to use a mule drawn cart if it cost less and required absolutely no input from them to maintain it.

That's some next level blue sky dreaming right there. Trying to figure out how many cubic ft of air you'd have to scrub to get any sort of usable fuel out of it. Guessing A LOT.

Are you implying that a state that cannot maintain the electrical equipment they have, cannot meet even current needs without rolling scheduled blackouts. And, what's more, said has cried poverty with regards to fixing both prior issues so far and yet, they will magically somehow be able to handle charging infrastructure?

Side note, over under bets on their fire issues increasing, or staying the same, as more fire prone evs hit the streets?

No problemo. The Halls of Congress have plenty and more.

Is that Trump? Looks like Trump ....
Nah, that’s Ken, of Ken and Barbie, in 2035.

The fake smile gave it away.

Edit, it might be Trump if he decided to get the ‘Kenny Rogers’ makeover.
