Since it’ll only be a small reduction we shouldn’t bother making the effort to reduce emissions. Got it, if it’s not a home run don’t bother.

So in your opinion, what size reduction from a means to reduce emissions is worth the effort: 10%, 50%?

As opposed to several means each making small reductions.

Lots of these GEEZERS are still here, even though they have no RV!


Exactly
I always wondered what the deal was with that. Not just this forum, but fairly common to see someone post "Just sold _____ see ya around. Since I don't own ____ anymore, I'm leaving."

I mean, fair enough if someone isn't interested in whatever the subject is any longer.
But just because I sold the camper doesn't mean I'm not a camper or RVer anymore. The only difference is I have about 5 less repair projects on my list, more room in the driveway and shop for the time being and a fat stack of Benjis in my pocket. Haven't quit camping. Never even alluded to it.

The U.S. produces 15% of the world’s GHGs, transportation accounts for 27% of those emissions, and 57% of transportation emissions come from passenger cars and light duty trucks. That means if every car was an EV with batteries charged from a non-carbon emitting source, GHGs would be reduced by 2.3%. Only 39% of U.S electricity, however, comes from non-carbon emitting sources. Therefore, realistically, if every car in the U.S. was an EV, carbon in the world’s atmosphere would be reduced by less than 1%.

This is a quote from an engineer in a Fox News article.


There are a lot of assumptions made here and a less-than-complete view. One example: We live in a very populous area of Northern CA, and zero % of our electricity comes from carbon-emitting sources. We have biomass, geothermal, hydro, solar, and wind. We also have a small amount of nuclear coming from Diablo Canyon. We have no shortages, brownouts, or blackouts.

It would be great to see where those Fox numbers come from.

When you go to one of those charging stations like they have here at Walmart,
how much does it cost to recharge your EV?

Teenagers were enjoying a meal at a burger joint in Texas after a football game when something totally unexpected happened. Some pranksters waited until the front door of the restaurant was opened, then filled it with nasty exhaust fumes from a pickup truck. “Rolling Coal” stunts like these have been menacing innocent people around the country.

^Awesome! Good clean fun!
Unless you're more of a dress like a furry or dye your hair purple and make up a new pronoun for yourself and loot stores, in the name of peaceful protest type of prankster...

Idk, but I tried to find the picture of charging our SRT8 at an EV spot, must've deleted it.
Only parking spot left in a parkade (Canadian for parking garage) was for EVs, but I saw a Tesla parked in a dino burner spot, so I opened the gas tank filler door and stuck the charging cable in the filler neck.
Was good to go for the night. But the gas tank still read half empty in the morning.[emoticon]
