People totally freak out about oil spills. Yes, some are bad, especially when there are other chemicals added to oil to change its properties, but the Valdez spill proved that letting nature take its course is often the best option. In the areas where people went to extremes in cleaning up the oil, like steam cleaning the shoreline, it literally =sterilized= the entire area, having killed pretty much all life, from micro to macro. In the areas where little to no remediation was done, they bounced back within just a couple of years and it was virtually impossible to tell where they were within something like 4-5 years. The other areas are =still= recovering some 32 years later. People forget that there are NATURAL oil seeps along the SoCal coast that, while messy, literally do little to nothing to the environment. La Brea Tar Pits, anyone? There are a lot of natural oil seeps around the world that Nature adapts to and "takes care of" without a "disaster". People get all up in arms about the SHORT-TERM effects that a spill causes HUMANS, like contaminated fishing areas, but LONG-TERM, Nature =always= wins.

And if we had started recycling tires before steel belts we would never had steel wire in tires.

What is your solution? Burn it all down?


Solution is there is nothing wrong with burning fossil fuels as they are so clean and sure don't do the environmental damage like mining all the resources needed for all these batteries.

Bottom line quit acting like EV's are so **** clean.

Burn it all down.. ?? Sounds like the Tesla crowd is doing that all by themselves…. Seams like we are hearing more and more stories about Tesla’s burning to the ground…
