Greenwashing, Part III

God help us.

What is it with these people?

Plugging the damn thing in to the grid is suppose to "reduce emissions by up to 70% for the first fifty miles," as the article states, but I'm quite sure that is complete bullshit, as that figure is no doubt something that is selectively picked from the entire stream of pollution that the process of producing and powering the damn thing creates.

The hard science can not be refuted on this. Fundamentals of physics (thermodynamics, entropy) will not allow for the claims they are making to actually work. All kinds of losses in the conversion of one form of energy to another that are being actively ignored! The education (lack of, actually) of people is astounding these days.

Rome is burning and all these dolts want to do is throw more dung on the fire! Cultural suicide, as Toynbee once wrote.


A pox on all of them.

Fuck it. The show is coming to a close on this whole shitbox pretty soon anyway, and I'm now fairly certain that it's going up in a great big funeral pyre in about 2 years time.

I'm preparing my lawn chair location for the ensuing madness that will follow. I'm going to watch it all and get in a few pot-shots and enjoy a beer while things sinks.

All good things, and all that shit.

But, but, but this is the most ethical congress ever! They have nothing but our best interests at heart! Don't you see -- they mean well! They have the best of intentions! /sarcasm
you're right... we're going to hell in a handbasket...
