Again, unless the recyclers pay for the batteries, they will not go to the recyclers. People don't care about the environmental cost of disposing of them improperly. And the recyclers will have to pay well. Look at pretty much every other recyclable material. Even ones that they pay for (aluminum, c...

186404 This is a terrible take. Failure happens. in Science, in Markets, etc. Absolutely. Not arguing against government investment.

186384 The "antitax" Republicans want to stick it too EVs cuz those aren't their voters. And I'm ok with that. All the taxes the other side makes up for me, they deserve a few. 186371 EV is absolutely the future. I equate EV with environmentalists in a way. They can show the 'science' tha...

186367 my numbers i looked up were way higher. Conservative estimates put U.S. direct subsidies to the fossil fuel industry at roughly $20 billion per year; with 20 percent currently allocated to coal and 80 percent to natural gas and crude oil. European Union subsidies are estimated to total 55 bi...

186365 USA subsidies to oil producers are in the ballpark of $20 billion per year. Ya, but what percent of that is for coal and natural gas to make your electricity? According to a 2015 estimate by the Obama administration, the US oil industry benefited from subsidies of about $4.6 billion per year...

Good question. Wonder if they took that into consideration when they came up with the low $200 per year figure. Again, you are a below average driver (in soooo many ways), so your tax probably shouldn't be $200 (my googling came up with $177). But an average driver would be paying over $200. Heavy d...

186358 That's some bullshit. Electric cars should pay something, but not $200 I think that still seems low. I bet I pay considerably more than that in gas tax driving a car about the same size. I would agree with a proposal that you can submit mileage reports showing low use, thus lowering the bill...

Could have sworn I posted this last night. Maybe it was in an incorrect thread. Which out of context, would have been funny.

I'm not saying she's right or wrong, because he never let her talk. He just made fun of her the whole time mostly cutting her off. But since she demanded he call her doctor right off the bat, she deserved it.

Well, fuck you then, HBO. Maybe you can wrap it up with a bullshit "These ones lived, these ones died, now can you shut up about it" movie 15 years from now like you did Deadwood.
