    The FBI writes the note, takes the ransom, then, “oh look what we recovered!”. (With full cooperation of pipeline operator.)

    Really?

    Whole thing invented,
    more likely.

    Hey now, no questioning the dream of an all electric transport system. No matter how poorly thought out.

    Hmm...When you think about this.

    The 'Lectric car will be using a device similar to a Hair Dryer - to keep you warn or cool.

    Just remember it runs on the same batteries that the Drive wheels use.

    Some days might be a long walk home.

    A folding bicycle plus three days food & water is a required option with electric vehicles.’

    Not to mention a hammer to break out should it suddenly go bat-shit crazy (means an alien intends to have you for dinner; quick roast or as decapitated sushi).

    They'll have to rename the song Kansas City Nights...

    Poster scrolls upward to VERIFY this post is in proper forum...

    IT boggles my mind to think that we are simply going to switch over - the sheer amount of resources needed to retool and redo the vehicles that are supposedly more energy and environmentally friendly - seems to be a two edged sword. One edge is the reliability, the other is the required infrastructure.

    The steel mills from another era - their hulks are eroding back into the soil, but how soon we forget how much energy it will take to make us "Green".

    We forget how we got here, thru the use of fossil fuels, seems those that are in the know want to sequester that - again rewriting our past..

    In our current direction - we're getting pulled into another - we'll have to someday rely on electricity as the sole power use? Oh! How! - were forgetting how much energy and resources it takes to make that light - let alone millions of them - and to keep them lit - in each city.

    We still haven't solved the problems of the recycling of the batteries and the disposal and any reclamation of the vehicles and how much energy that will take let alone the toxicity - worse than what we have now.

    No one seems to bother to warn the others of the flooding issues and how it can total out the 'lectric Leaf, but if you're careful and diligent, you can save the Fossil-fueled Ford from the scrap pile with some elbow grease and cleaning.

    There is a reason why things were built the way they were - note the sue of PAST Tense...to re recoverable

    They won't mandate electric vehicles. Instead, they will carbon tax the crap out of fossil fuels thereby making the electric vehicles cheap in comparison. Enter the Chinese electric car. Social media and main stream media will put the thumb screws to anyone who doesn't beg for this which masquerades as the New Green Deal. Coming to a town near you.

    Electric can never compete on a cost basis, short or long-term, so this is sorta false equivalence where one type is forced upwards via regulations and the other type is forced downwards via massive subsidization.

    As this nation will NEVER have the electrical generating capacity to charge the current numbers in the fleet (total cars; overnight demand draw), its more fuel to the fire of massive depopulation and/or cars restricted to few owners.

    And few or fewest stations selling gasoline.

    Force everyone back into metro regions. De-populate countryside.

    I no longer believe anything reported by the media or the government without further investigation of my own from more credible sources or letting time bring out the truth.... So sad to see where we're going as a nation with all the lies.

    Not today Satan

    You'll receive improved accuracy if you invert every word they say. Trust is earned and hasn't been in decades. It's only going to get worse too because you're never going to be able to vote for change ever again. We are right back to choosing between pre-approve selections, that will always provide the same bs, under a different label. I've never felt less secure about the future of our country than I do today. Seems like they just refuse to miss a single opportunity to screw the taxpayer.
