You have to spend money to save the environment.

They can't even keep a virus under control... so how do they think they can save the environment.

By the way: The trillions of dollars they are spending right now is not saving the environment nor our planet... but it is destroying our economy and making them richer!

I don't believe the deal that you can spend money to save the environment. Our planet was here long before any humans were. And it went through the ice age and draughts long before we walked the earth. And it will be here long after we kill our own selves off too.

We can help to keep it clean, we can do thing to reduce pollution, but we cannot save the environment.

Cities in the U.S. are filthy.  Most them are littered with garbage. Rather than focusing on what they are, the first thing should be to clean up the streets, literally.

They need to clean up a lot... not just the streets, but all the graffiti everywhere, homeless encampments where literally s##t is on the side of the road, bad roads, bad bridges, bad... {fill in the blank}... but yet they're only interesting in spending money on something they cannot control!

WSJ Electric Vehicle Road Trip a Disaster

JOEL B. POLLAK
7 Jun 2022

The Wall Street Journal reported this weekend on a four-day road trip from New Orleans to Chicago and back in an electric vehicle (EV) that ended up as a disaster — one that left the author grateful for her ordinary car, even at today’s high gas price.
 
The Journal article, by Rachel Wolfe, was titled: “I Rented an Electric Car for a Four-Day Road Trip. I Spent More Time Charging It Than I Did Sleeping.” In it, the author described planning the journey, using the PlugShare app to map charging stations and estimate charging times, based on the relative strength of each public charging station. She noted that more charging stations should, in theory, be available in future, thanks to the federal government’s new infrastructure bill.
 
For now, however, long-distance travel by electric vehicle proved almost impossible, saving just $100 and costing hours. At several points, Wolfe recalled, the car nearly ran out of battery; they missed several appointments. They also had to take drastic steps to curb their use of power, such as unplugging their phones and turning down their windshield wipers.
 
She wrote: “Over four days, we spent $175 on charging. We estimated the equivalent cost for gas in a Kia Forte would have been $275, based on the AAA average national gas price for May 19. That $100 savings cost us many hours in waiting time.”
 
Wolfe also described conversations with fellow travelers: “The woman charging next to us describes a harrowing recent trip in her Volkswagen ID.4. Deborah Carrico, 65, had to be towed twice while driving between her Louisville, Ky., apartment and Boulder, Colo., where her daughter was getting married.” She noted that the woman had described feeling unsafe while charging at night, and that her family had urged her to trade in her electric car in favor of an old-fashioned gas model.
 
Wolfe concluded:
 
The following week, I fill up my Jetta at a local Shell station. Gas is up to $4.08 a gallon.
 
I inhale deeply. Fumes never smelled so sweet.
 
Democrats are pushing drivers to abandon their gas vehicles despite the lag in available infrastructure, and the increased demand that charging will place on already-fragile electrical grids. In 2020, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) banned gas-powered vehicle sales in the state by 3025.
 
Though many drivers are considering the switch to EVs, given high gas prices, the limited range on many vehicles, the variable performance of electric vehicles in bad weather, and the scarcity of charging stations has many opting for hybrid models, or traditional internal combustion engines.

Video: Reporter Asks General Motors CEO Where The Charging Electricity Comes From For Their New Chevy Volt – Her Answer Is Hilarious

June 8, 2022

Okay, so she did try to whitewash her accidental admission by switching it to “natural gas” – which is not much different, according to the climate mafia – at the last second. Still, General Motors (GM) spokesperson Kristin Zimmerman has become something of an internet sensation for letting the cat out of the bag that their new “electric” car is charged by a power plant that runs on coal, so basically, their new car at the moment would actually run on about 95 percent coal.
 
During an unveiling of the new Chevy Volt, Zimmerman demonstrated for the media how the supposedly “green” vehicle is simply plugged into a power source for energy. And this power source, at least in Michigan, is mostly burned coal.
 
If you watch the video closely, you can see the precise moment when Zimmerman realized she had walked right into a trap. She thought about it for a second and came to the realization that her company’s supposedly “green” vehicles are worse polluters than their gas-powered counterparts.
 
“For those of you who didn’t put it all together: Electric cars run off electricity, electricity provided by a power plant, a plant that runs primarily off coal, which actually is a worse pollutant than a gas-powered engine.
 
This has been known for years, as a paper that came out back in 2015 revealed that most electric cars throughout the country are powered by electricity that comes from coal.
 
While some areas of the country are heavy on nuclear and hydro power sources, the fact remains that coal is still what powers America. Consequently, electric vehicles are nothing more than greenwashed virtue signaling tools to make climate fanatics feel as though they are better than everybody else.

It’s not a secret, though.
