None of these people that claim they are fighting for Climate change want to give up their luxury cars, jets and all the great things that Capitalism has afforded them, but they want us to drive a crappy EV that no one wants or can afford. Hypocrites, all of them.

Hypocrites, all of them.

The willfully ignorant, among whom are many denying climate change even claiming we should use all resources now, lambaste the wealthiest who in fact are among the biggest polluters and wasters of resources, while at the same time lauding the wealthiest for their lavish lifestyles and expensive toys. Many support politicians that flaunt their lifestyles, and live by the slogan, “the one with the most expensive toys at the end wins’

"None", "all", yeah sure. Yawn.

Ok, but we will always need oil, always

Kerry, Gore DiCaprio? I agree.

Or common sense just might prevail to see what all this false hysteria was all about.

This is not written in stone. I'm sure at one point people in the 19th century were saying we would always need whale oil.

EVs can go fast, don't smell like chemicals, don't give you cancer, and don't run you the risk of exploding or catching fire when being refueled. Also the transmission is dead simple. That's a pretty strong list of benefits.

Oh, and also they aren't a noise nuisance to the neighbors. You may consider this a detriment.

Developing countries should ban the export of rare metals, lithium, cobalt etc. sanction the West.

Lol. Nice try. Considering these are the same countries that didn't give a rat's patootie about Ukraine, why do you think they would care about Palestinians?

For now and in the foreseeable future it is.

Uhh, yeah, it will be long, long, long after our kids and maybe their kids are born.

So what do we do about planes, guitars, TVs, and leaf blowers?

Oil-rich countries in the Middle East are looking for alternatives to fossil fuels because they know the sale-by-date is looming upon them.

These things should be done on Zoom

Most democracies are not led by thugs that are loathe to leave the safety of a bunkered existence and spend most of their time sitting all alone at an oversized table.

We won't be around to see that day, bet on it.

By 2050 fossil fuels will end.

Sad to say, but as long as you’re poor, the rich will ignore the poor. Always have, always will. Nothing will change until the rich realize it’s to the best of their economic benefit to change too.

When oil countries like the United Arab Emirates call for an end to fossil fuels the endgame is coming into view.

Another Greta fan.

Forward we move in unison. World leaders are blessed with a creative and a constructive vision for the present and for the future. They all wish humankind, their companion species, and Planet Earth to enjoy good health and long life. We need to appreciate their efforts to see us happy during our exciting journey with them forward.
