quote: Typically connectors in the average U.S. household use 120 volts of electric potential, but the EV chargers use 240 volts, in order to pump electricity into the batteries faster.
quote: Some scientists today believe that the Earth is currently in a warming trend, and believe humans are causing that trend by outputting carbon from fossil fuels and livestock digestion byproducts into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide, methane, and other carbon-gases have been shown to trap heat, but no one can say precisely how much carbon the earth can reabsorb and the precise "forcing" or heating effect per unit of carbon that stays in the atmosphere.

quote: Its bad science that progressives cling to get votes, power, and cash.
quote: It's mostly the conservative right that thinks it's all a swindle, and it thinks so for contradictory reasons. The same guys who see AGW as corrupt scientists passing off fake science to increase funding for pet projects and get a little attention, in the next breath claim it's a vast socialist conspiracy to destroy capitalism, or shadowy global government attempting to expand and take over all life as we know it.
quote: AGW should be argued from the science.
quote: All Sunstein is saying is that if you want to do good in the world, you can't always hope to make a profit out of it, and that aid to fight AGW might be a more effective way than traditional foreign aid. He uses leftist geek talk, but that's all he meant.
quote: Frankly, I don't see the socialist plot in Hansen's argument for a carbon tax; unless of course you think all taxation is socialism.
quote: If AGW is correct, it's a global problem that requires global solutions.
quote: I'll have to get to the remaining two links some other time.
quote: I feel like I'm wasting my time.
quote: So how do we deal with the contradiction?
quote: Neither Wisconsin nor Michigan have any money to spend on anything whatsoever, beyond current commitments. Hell, they can't even cover that much....
quote: It's criminal that Ford is having to compete against the government. I am amazed they are able to compete and succeed after having to battle against private corporations and bottomless, taxpayer funded pits like Government Motors and Chrysler. I own a Jeep now, but all of my future cars will be from a company that is not already stealing from me.
quote: Michigan and Wisconsin under the new plan will work to develop joint actions plans to fight warming, including proposing taxpayer-funded projects and programs designed to fight global warming.
