RE: 400 mile electric RV

The Keystone pipeline shutdown was simply to appeal politically to the incoherent greenies, in exchange for increased political power ($$)…America is using the same amount of energy with this artificially created deficit coming from overseas sources, along with a loss of well paying jobs, and paying a surcharge at the pump and across the entire economy to do so… So please explain to the ‘unenlightened’ how ‘political meddling’ in the energy infrastructure produces less (P.C. boogyman) Carbon, and how this is the cogent way forward…. BTW, two years ago we took a cruse ship through Prince William Sound (recall Exxon Valdez spill…) , whereby the Cruse Director stated that the sound had returned to it’s original condition…I was kinda doubtful, but with otters, whales and dolphins in the waters, I could see no signs of residual oil anywhere or on any shoreline, in fact the entire area looked absolutely pristine - thankfully, this is nature’s way… 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

“Ask a park ranger in RMNP about the effects of air pollution drifting in from SF & LA.” Agreed, but the primary source of his angst comes not from vehicles but from Calif forest mis-management - we’ve suffered more than 5 years of this dreaded policy malfeasance in my Nevada neighborhood, with Calif ash even coming into our house, yet this goes totally unabated, in fact Calif doesn’t even count the CO2 resulting from their wildfires… “Stupid is as Stupid does” comes to mind… “The sooner the oil wells in CA are decommissioned the better”… Lots of emotion here (a NIMBY syndrome??), but then who’ll provide the fuel for our RV tow vehicles, and for those who accept without any personal examination whatsoever that CO2 is a ‘pollutant’ - regardless the source, how do we replace oil with a 24/7 steady, reliable energy supply without going nuclear?? “Today is Clean Air Day in CA” … Huh??…I only wish Calif would declare a Clean Air Reparations Day for the weeks and even months others elsewhere are in a virtual lockdown over devastating AQI !! Even the sky's in our friends region in Delaware had turned brown!!…(Yet, not a single solitary word from the greenies - lol). As unfortunate and ugly as it is, oil and natural gas seeping up from the ocean floor is a worldwide centuries old phenomenon, yet nature has it’s ways and means of digesting such… The ugly truth is that there’s no free lunch, no one gets a pass…We all bear some degree of personal responsibility, mainly because of the first world lifestyles we partake in and enjoy, yet outsourcing energy production offshore causes far more pollution…So on the one hand one might ask of themselves “what am I willing to give up”, but much of this paradox can be properly mitigated were there to be a coherent, multi-facited, non-politicized energy policy (but environmental fear sells), the best initial investment might be modernization of the grid.. 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

... Understand that almost any modern new ICE automobile is very nearly an actual zero pollution vehicle with only some occasional minor exceptions (like transiting up-hill on-ramps), and there’s no solid evidence whatsoever that BEV’s achieve a lower net footprint…Thus (regarding a multitude of current issues) we must acknowledge our captivity in this now ‘Post-Truth’ era…JMHO 3 tons No offence but thats the most idiotic load of nonsense ever. Lock yourself in garage w ICE engine runnin, Ill do the same w EV,will see whos more poluting. “Idiotic” how so?? Your argument ‘pretends’ that EV’s are not responsible for the carbon created to electrify them…That notion seems a bit idiotic to me… 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

I have no problem whatsoever with BEV’s as a consumer alternative to ICE’s, but to the extent that Politicians have found a way to effectuate public policy, pick marketplace winners and losers via subsidies and codify strong-arm edicts absent any ‘real independent’ scientific assessments (who would independently fund such?), it bears the appearance of power accumulation (“do as you’re told, nothing to see here”) and it’s this that should concern every thinking person (skeptical of popular ‘narratives’)…Understand that almost any modern new ICE automobile is very nearly an actual zero pollution vehicle with only some occasional minor exceptions (like transiting up-hill on-ramps), and there’s no solid evidence whatsoever that BEV’s achieve a lower net footprint…Thus (regarding a multitude of current issues) we must acknowledge our captivity in this now ‘Post-Truth’ era…JMHO 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

Per free radical, “I always wondered how come comunist China is so sucesful when India next door with same population and primitive third world conditions,” In 1971 China was a Nixon-Kissinger societal re-engineering project for the U.S…Kissinger ostensibly went to Bangladesh to check on relief efforts due to extreme flooding and war, but due to administration fears of an eventual US China nuclear confrontation, Kissinger covertly crossed the border into China to introduce the CCP to the benefits of modernization and capitalism…At this time India’s stall-worth ally and reliable patron was the stodgy USSR…Make no mistake, China’s transition into becoming a first world powerhouse was made wholly possible by the US…Nixon’s worrisome assumption was that a modernized China would help prevent nuclear confrontation… 3 tons

I can attest that the photograph above is NOT an exaggeration. Times are a changing Chinas war on polution https://youtu.be/iSfNvMR-Yww Coal plants are being shut down,solar wind and hydro is in see CGTN news. Well since much of China might still be considered third world, the transition to an intermittent wind-solar power supply should make for an easier societal adaptation than what’s sure to be the American version - Most cloistered American’s really have no mental reference point as to authentic third world hardships or what ‘going green’ will make manifest, or how it’ll likely transform their kids future - but on the other hand it’s always ‘good intentions’ and popular consensus (a Pavlovian response) that drive these lofty policy matters (whether conflicts, climate, the grid, ad nauseam…) so why bother with independent evaluations when we have virtuous Representatives ($$) capable of steamrolling whatever policy on demand?? 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

Timmo! said: “Am I the only person that sees a problem of waiting 10-26 years before the promises of driving a "green" car, actually materializes? Said differently, why would I want to pollute Mother Earth for 10-26 years, when there are other greener alternatives? And if this climate change issue is so urgent, then why is the strategy to front load carbon emissions now, and then trust the out years will actually be cleaner. Promises uttered by elites are not always fulfilled.” Except jt or not, understand that with ‘said to be green’ matters (and other ‘prominent’ matters of discontent…..), we are now living within a ‘post truth’ era…There’s no obligation to advance inform one for this to be true…And, therein lies the primary source of our BEV vs ICE policy incoherence… 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

The problem is essential two fold: a) As with the ‘current health malady’ that’s continually being sliced and diced on the Hill and in the news, we’ll likely never learn the truth about ‘green EV’s’ and their claimed net carbon reduction assumptions, or whether or not a ‘real carbon crisis’ even exist (e.g. now deemed, socially tabooed ‘wrong-think’)… b) The uber politicalization of ‘the truth’ (the adulteration of empirical science via outcome based scientism), because ‘common folks’ (well intentioned, but distracted-unengaged taxpayers) lack the need to be apprised of any authentic science. Kinda brings to mind that famous old axiom, “The truth will set you free”, but when it comes to EV’s and so-called ‘Green energy’ (et al), who are WE to demand objective science?? 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

At best, a Forbes Opinion writer (or any other cherry picked ‘green theologian’) merely offers his anecdotal account repeat with bias (opinion is bias) in no way a substitute for objective empirical independent study…Before adopting such policies, where’s the independent peer reviewed study?? Don't pretend you'd accept peer reviewed research when you'll just dismiss it with "Be advised that Universities routinely compete for Gov’t Grant moola ($$ cash cow) by willingly contracting to substantiate what’s often and essential a politically preordained outcome" Where's your peer reviewed research backing your claims? Ha, there’s no need to impute my feelings (a ‘don’t like the message, discredit the messenger’ thingy), when I’ve merely brought to your attention the lacking of such peer reviewed study…One might think that BEFORE arriving at ANY particular public policy, it quite naturally would be preceded by a cogent objective study (something beyond a magazine story), where the various scientific opinions could be aired, thus one would think that it too would be in your camp’s interest to advocate for such to help bolster your particular point of view…What ever happened to “Follow the science”?? 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

If we look under the hood of a train's locomotive we will see a large diesel engine that powers an electric generator that supplies electricity to powerful electric electric motors known as "traction motors". So this should diffuse any suggestion that electric motors lack torque or power. True, but if you look a bit lower at the locomotives chassis you’ll also find several HUGE fuel tanks full of diesel…Critical thinking sometimes Required… 3 tons

RE: 400 mile electric RV

The bottom line is that lithium battery technology entered the scene well before a cogent plan existed to power up EV’s from what is an already challenged grid, but timed perfectly to advantage green Politicians and their rush to purple unicorns (tax subsidies)…Beyond this, an empirically objective analysis has never been made to establish the claim that EV’s can in anyway cause a net reduction in CO2, thus for the sake of the myopic, ‘feel good’ green agenda, the proverbial cart was placed in front of the horse…But nowadays ‘truth’ doesn’t seem to sell too well… 3 tons
