    Thanks for your underhanded apology, dude. Why even bother?
    25mpg is trash to the rest of the first world, but you chose to take personally a not so crazy idea (much of the world's personal vehicles get way better mileage and are appalled that people in America insist on getting less) that you misinterpreted and then ridiculed me for when you realized there was more nuance then you first thought. A+

    Brevity is not your forte? Nuance has nothing to do with anything. You tend to get hysterical.

    OK I have some time to add on.

    You want to exclude work vehicles from a carbon tax? OK.

    Do you know that if I would have bought a full sized PU I could write off about 30K a year for up to 3 years? Instead I take the Mileage deduction at .55 per mile.

    That is one of the main reasons you see construction folks driving big new PUs and why they turn them over about every 3 years. Sure for some its about the size of their dicks, for most it is about the taxes advantages our current system gives to those vehicles.

    The more you know...

    I wonder why nobody has built a hybrid pickup? Seems like putting a bunch of batteries under the bed might be a good way to improve traction, in addition to improving the overall mileage of the vehicle.

    Are there some technical issues that perhaps I'm missing? I mean, I'm no automotive engineer...

    Ford is making the F150 in a full electric version, but it won't be out for a year or more. Tesla is making one, as is Rivian. The Rivian will get 400 miles on a charge, has incredible clearance and can go through water 3 feet deep. Tesla's will have a 14,000 pound towing capacity.

    Payload rating. Batteries are heavy and add in a motor or two and a half ton PU becomes a 1/4 ton, 3/4 a Half.

    Good! Pass the cost on to your client! That's what's supposed to happen!

    What purpose does that accomplish?

    It increases the cost of using carbon fuels and people / clients look for alternatives, or they pay the tax which goes to fund development of sustainable solutions and alternatives, and the additional costs and funding provide incentive to invent develop and produce sustainable alternatives.

    If you're not smart enough to understand that, then you probably shouldn't be driving any type of vehicle at all.

    Thatís not how taxes work. But yes heavy pickups and suvs can get accelerated deductions. Cars cannot.
    So a $50k suv can depreciated in full the first year. If itís a light car it takes five years.

    And if you trade that pickup in three years for $30k and buy another $50k pickup you only get to deduct another $20k not the whole $50k

    Air pollution has well established links to lung cancer and heart disease, and is also connected to increased risk of other diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer's arising from the chronic inflammation that it causes.

    Setting aside greenhouse gasses, the dividends gained from moving to cleaner more sustainable technologies is a cleaner less polluted environment which also benefits human health.

    A tax on carbon dioxide emissions in Great Britain, introduced in 2013, has led to the proportion of electricity generated from coal falling from 40% to 3% over six years, according to research led by UCL.

    Cardenas and his team were diving in the area to try to study the effects on the ocean ecosystems of groundwater from nearby islands. There, they discovered Soda Springs - not created by any human cause, but a nearby volcano, venting through cracks in the ocean floor.
    "It's really a big part of the ocean that is left unexplored because it's too shallow for remotely operated vehicles and is too deep for regular divers," he explained.

    It's not a cause for climate concern, since the area has likely been bubbling for a very long time, maybe even thousands of years; but Soda Springs could be the highest concentration of carbon dioxide ever found in nature.

    Excellent 2 hour episode of Nova on PBS "Polar Extremes" about climate variability and the science behind determining past climates and using that information to predict future climates. Should be available to stream on the Nova homepage now. A lot better than the usual Nova episode.

    now, he makes no news on exactly what, could be research, could be more money losing windmills; sure as hell will not be the actual one type of energy that's the cleanest and most efficient, nuclear; but we all feel better.

    your problem is you have changed the narrative to fit results. CO2 should be eternally warming the planet given human increases; things like 700 inches of snow in Tahoe last year should never have happened. I am not, if the sun weakens intensity, it cools, if it intensifies it warm and man is a pinprick. sun is weakening, its cooling.

    and i'll keep posting here as long as this political issue is not in polyass. I leave the weed thread alone as its legal, you all are adults and you all know long term will not work out well for you; not going to beat you over the head with that.
