General Discussion / Switzerland to ban electric cars?
« on: December 24, 2022, 08:31:26 PM »
If the energy crisis gets any worse.

Electricity is a valuable commodity, and there is not enough of it right now.  IMHO, Switzerland is STUPID for phasing out its nuclear plants... they should be building MORE of them.  We know that these electric vehicles require a ton of electricity to recharge them.

Forcing everybody into an EV before upgrading the power grid is worse than putting the cart in front of the horse, and will ultimately lead to disaster.  Of course, some people want that.

General Discussion / You must buy one but you can't charge it
« on: September 03, 2022, 08:18:39 PM »
This sounds like a joke.

Currently, only 1.6% of California's 30 million vehicles are electric.  1.6 percent, and the grid CAN'T EVEN HANDLE THAT!

It's been estimated that the State would have to add 17 Gigawatts of electricity to accommodate 30 million EVs, and if you seriously think that you can get those 17 GW with windmills and solar cells, you need to face reality.  For a state currently facing an energy crisis, this EV mandate is like pouring gasoline on an open fire so to speak.

Are the people running that state
A. Clueless
B. Stupid
or
C. Deliberately trying to destroy the fifth largest economy in the world

All this ''green'' or ''renewable'' energy can complement what we have now and REDUCE our usage of ''fossil fuels'', but they cannot REPLACE traditional energy sources.  Europe is currently finding this out the hard way.

TWC and your Cable Company / Re: Is cable TV going downhill?
« on: August 22, 2022, 09:24:52 PM »
In terms of scheduling, cable tv is definitely not the same as it used to be. Before the days of Netflix and such, they used to give shows equal screentime, regardless if it iwas a hit or not. But then sometimes around the 2010s, most tv networks started dedicating to playing lots of reruns of a particular show because it gets the most ratings, such as:
Ridiculousness (MTV)
Impractical Jokers (TruTV)
SpongeBob (Nickelodeon/Nicktoons)
Friends (Nick at Nite)
Teen Titans GO (Cartoon Network)
Puppy Dog Pals (Disney Junior)
Andy Griffith Show (TV Land)
Bar Rescue (Paramount Network)
South Park (Comedy Central)

Go check the TV Guide and you know what I'm talking about...

It seems like ''The Office'' is the only thing that airs on Comedy Central anymore.

Some less than $4.00.

There is a good side to a recession, I guess.   :dunno:

I know Bill runs his own server, so maybe he's having hardware problems?

Saw my first $5.00 today.  First of many, unfortunately.   :thumbdown:

And it went to $5.50 in less than a week.   :no:

This was brought to my attention this afternoon.  I don't know how accurate this is, but if it is then I was wrong up above, and I deeply apologize for that.  My ''2 ton'' statement WASN'T EVEN CLOSE.

Is it ethical to purchase a lithium battery powered EV?

Don't get me wrong, if you want to drive an electric car... that's cool.  But if you think you're saving the planet by doing so, you've only heard part of the story.

Hey, does Mr. Starks still sell CDs? Last update was 4 years ago.

How about digital downloads?

Why is it that oil is only a bad thing when we pump it?  Russia, Iran, and the rest of OPEC can pump all they want, and nobody cares.   :thinking:

Now we are going to start buying oil from Venezuela.  I guess Venezuelan oil doesn't cause ''climate change'' the way domestically produced oil does.  :dunno:

Watch interior secretary Deb Halland respond to this query...   :rofl2:

Why is the Weather Channel misleading the public about electric cars and solar panels.  Electric Cars and Solar Panels require more fossil fuel to manufacture than the save.  Solar Panels are an environmental hazard when they are disposed of  in a land fill than you are telling the public.  I believe the Weather Channel is more concerned with ratings than they are with unbiased reporting.   I have lost all the respect I formerly had in the Weather Channel, as have many Americans, especially with dropping the ball on Hurricane Nicholas.

Nearly 2 tons of earth has to be moved in order to mine enough minerals to manufacture ONE battery for an electric vehicle.

Why is it that oil is only a bad thing when we pump it?  Russia, Iran, and the rest of OPEC can pump all they want, and nobody cares.   :thinking:

Coal is a four-letter-word in this country, but China can't burn enough of the stuff.  Again, not a peep.

Makes you wonder.

Very sad indeed.    :(
