I've been wondering about what scientists are doing about Climate Change for a while--since, you know, they all agree that it's a thing and that human beings are the cause and our politicians are dragging their feet to say the least. I've heard a few stories on NPR that gave me some hope, but it seems those options are risky at best. And that would be why I'm hearing so little about us science-ing that shit. [sigh] Well, at least they're looking into it. For some reason, that makes me feel far more hopeful than if they weren't. You know? I guess I don't have much faith in voters bouncing out the GOP on its greedy, fascist, faith-based ass in time for some real action in the States--let alone the rest of the world. Still, I'll cross my fingers, and eat mostly vegetarian to counter-balance my husband's meat-eating. Still, here's a year-old article on Forbes stating that in 2014 CO2 Emissions flatlined. However, it seems that 2015 seems to have stuck with that trend. That's good news. I suspect that has a great deal to do with the sorry state of the fossil fuel industry at the moment. My hope is that it continues to suck for all our sakes. While it stinks for Texas's economy...it's a very good thing for the risk of the planet. And really, I'm sick of hearing about how Texas is so fucking independent, and the rest of the nation is bringing it down. As I've said before, that's a load of selfish, short-sighted bull crap. Electric cars are quite the popular thing around here. And I'm always happy to see more of them, but the industry doesn't quite have the support structure in place. Hopefully, that'll change soon. We need for cars to go electric. Yes. The muscle car enthusiast is saying this.
And this is where you ask me what I think of Teslas? Love them. They worry me with their hack-ability factor...but they're so much fun. They are Kitt made real. Who wouldn't want that?
