The Electric Car Is
an Abomination

Real Clear Politics, by Robert Tracinski

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/23/2013 4:46:03 AM

Electric cars never really made any sense. They are cloaked in the sanctimony of the green movement, because they don´t use nasty fossil fuels like gasoline. Instead, they use electricity, which is sent out through power lines from big power plants, which generate this electricity—how? Oh yes, by burning fossil fuels like oil, coal, and natural gas. This is known as the "long tailpipe," which goes from the car charging up in your garage all the way back to the smokestack of a coal-fired power plant. And don´t forget, electric cars also have giant batteries made from nasty toxic metals

Climate change and all that crap has one motivation behind it and that´s hate. Hatred towards oil gas and coal businesses because they make horrible profits and unjustly enrich people at the expense of the poor.

When you tell a changer that batteries are actually worse on environmental damage,it´s trumped by their hatred of conventional energy. No failure is too big for them to ignore.

The fact that he government has to subsidize all forms of green energy,tells you it´s a colossal failure without any other evidence.

Cap and trade would have made thousands of liberals millionaires if you just became a carbon exchange broker.Every time a trade is made,there´s a transaction fee which would run into the billions,once fully implemented.And that´s really what the environmental movement is about ,a humongous get rich quick scheme.

Electric cars and other "green" stuff enable Democrats to pretend they are good people by "saving the planet" from the evils of profit, greed and capitalism. That´s an important function, if your fragile self-image depends on pretending to feel morally superior to Republicans.

Electric cars are an abomination, now, but the technology will advance. Electricity generation has become cleaner with natural gas, which the U.S. has in spades. Nat. gas is an intermediate transitional fuel for electricity generation. In time, solar technology will advance to become the most efficient and cheapes way to generate electricity in most locales. They improve every year. Until they become economically viable, natural gas is our happy preferred source of energy. Our truck fleets are switching over, slowly at first, and will continue to switch because natural gas is half the price of diesel.

Then they will come after natural gas #3. This has never been about the environment, it is about limiting the mobility and productivity of the American people. Any solution we come up with will be attacked.

I don´t understand why oil is bad, nothing could be more natural, it occurs naturally below the surface of the earth.

Back in the mid 70´s I worked for an International scientific think tank in Vienna, Austria. One of the problems they were interested in was solar energy. The problem, they found out was that there is no way to store this energy.

If they could make an electric car that performed like a gas car and looked as big as a gas car and was affordable as a gas car and was as convenient to refuel as a gas car, I´d be there. But physics says you can´t beat the power of a combustion engine. It´s my opinion they still haven´t perfected the cordless drill yet. These anti oil retards don´t understand that oil gives us much more than gasoline. It give us the material to make the computers we´re using right now and everything that is made from plastic. Oil is a miracle gift and the stupid, retarded left wants us to believe otherwise.

They do the same thing to the cell phone industry....as griping...why doesn´t my phone work, after demanding that a cell tower not be installed in an area.

#3 - Here´s a gauge of the improvement of electric cars. The Chevy Volt claims an all-electric range of 38 miles. I can point you to a story of an electric car that had that same range with old-fashioned lead/acid batteries that made a near-transcontinental drive in 1910...so the Volt represents a century of development...and does no better in terms of range. No reports of bursting into flames, either.

The author failed to mention my big complaint with the current batch of US EVs...they are sucking on my tax dollar w/o my permission to fund their experiment. We "loaned" these rent-seekers $465,000,000 to fund their experiment when any one of the major investors could have written a check for that sum tomorrow.

If we wanted a venture capitalist picking winners and losers, we had the chance to pick an accomplished one rather than the rank Solyndraized amateurs we have now.

Just in case you weren´t jealous enough of the French already, what with their effortless style, lovely accents and collective will to calorie control, they have now just made it illegal to work after 6pm. Well, sort of. Après noticing that the ability of bosses to invade their employees´ home lives via smartphone at any heure of the day or night was enabling real work hours to extend further and further beyond the 35-hour week the country famously introduced in 1999, workers´ unions have been fighting back.

UPS To Rehire 250 Union Employees
Fired For Walking Off The Job

WASHINGTON — After heightened public pressure, UPS has agreed to rehire the 250 workers it fired for staging a brief strike in late February. Workers at a Queens, N.Y, shipping facility walked off the job for 90 minutes in February to protest what they thought was the unjust firing of a co-worker. But UPS said that strike was “illegal,” a term the union disputes, due to the no-strike clause in their contract, and ultimately decided to terminate the workers who participated. The agreement between UPS and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters includes the union compensating UPS for damages over loss

I’m betting the White House staffer who thought up the equal pay initiative is getting some fairly icy looks and snippy calls from Democrats. This has to be the worst idea since a staffer sent Air Force One’s backup plane to fly low over Manhattan. But at least the jet didn’t cause grief to fellow Democrats around the country. Day 2 of the president’s equal pay calamity continued today. A few highlights: The Post’s Nia-Malika Henderson catches the White House in its time warp, citing an e-mail in which working women bear an uncanny resemblance to Betty Draper: She The

The New York Times reported this week that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called gender pay equity a “bizarre obsession” of the left. The quote was picked up by a number of sites, including the Daily Kos, Talking Points Memo, The Huffington Post, and ThinkProgress. But as it turns out, that was not what McConnell made the comment about a “bizarre obsession” in reference to. McConnell’s comments on the Senate floor were meant to attack Democrats and President Obama for not being serious about jobs and the economy, referring to the liberal attacks on the Koch brothers.

On March 20, the Washington Post published an article by Steven Mufson and Julie Eilperin, the import of which was that Koch Industries is the driving force behind the Keystone Pipeline. The article, based entirely on a six-month-old report by a far-left group called the International Forum on Globalization that I demolished last October, was headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The piece’s point was summarized succinctly in a quote by a spokesman for IFG: “IFG’s intention is to demonstrate the Koch-Keystone connection.” I critiqued the Post story

The April 29th deadline has not yet been reached, but it may be said with confidence that the initiative by Secretary of State John Kerry to revive the ‘peace process’ between Israelis and Palestinians has already reached its final destination: failure. The failure of this initiative was obvious from the beginning. To everyone except, apparently, Kerry himself. This reality lent an element of low farce to the entire proceedings. By now, it should really be obvious to any serious observer that there is no chance that the Israeli-Palestinian negotiating process will produce a comprehensive peace between the two sides.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A White House adviser had to walk back the oft-repeated myth that women make 77 cents on the dollar that men make after being questioned about the figure during a conference call Monday. While detailing executive actions President Obama plans to take Tuesday regarding equal pay for women, Betsey Stevenson, a member of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said very defiantly that despite women contributing 44 percent of their household incomes, they continue to make less than men. Obama has declared Tuesday "Equal Pay Day" to highlight his administration´s focus on that issue. “They’re stuck at 77 cents on the

Morgan Stanley’s healthcare analysts conducted the proprietary survey of 148 brokers.

The average increases for the present quarter are in excess of 11% in the small group market and 12% in the individual market, where consumers purchase

Paralyzed Patients Move Again
with Spinal Stimulation

For people who become paralyzed after a spinal cord injury, the condition is usually permanent, but a new study suggests that zapping the spine with electricity during physical training could help paralyzed patients regain movement. Researchers applied electrical stimulation to the spines of four people who had been paralyzed for more than two years. All four patients were able to flex their toes, ankles and knees again, and their movements improved further with physical rehabilitation, the research showed. If proven effective in more people, the stimulation therapy could ultimately change the prognosis for people living with paralysis, researchers say.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
