A pipeline owned by the same company behind Dakota Access leaked 55,000 gallons of gasoline into a major river, endangering the drinking water of six million people.
This is why we don't need that new pipeline in North Dakota or anywhere else....we need to just move right on to renewable energy.

ooooh, what do we have here?......some great info guys. Here are some bits of info from it and the link the executive summary of the report. This is just another layer of info that backs up the other articles I've posted on where the transportation system is going.

There are some great graphs is this report I can't save and insert here, so def. open this up and look at it.

By 2018, solely using autonomous taxis for transportation could cost the same as owning and operating a car.
Quote:
Automated mobility services could capture two-thirds of the entire U.S. mobility market in 15 to 20 years
Quote:
Oil companies will lose revenue, utilities will gain, and carmakers will be split.
Quote:
According to our modeling, peak car ownership in the United States will occur around 2020 and will drop quickly after that.
Quote:
But carmakers that provide mobility services and autonomous vehicles could reap substantial profit since our current system costs around $0.80 per mile, and mature electric automated mobility service could cost only $0.30 per mile

Please check out the documentary I have been talking about:

[Only registered users can see links.]

From oil, coal, and gas to forests being chopped down for palm oil fields, to politics, to animal agriculture, Leo has created a well rounded doc of what's wrong, what's happening, and what we need to do not as US citizens, no, as a species on this very tiny planet floating in a vast universe.

Watch and share and share and watch again. The last minute is fucking mind blowing, emotional stress and de-stress.

Ok, enough with the satire

Another article showing how EVs are changing the global economy.

[Only registered users can see links.]

I quoted this part because of our current election:

Quote:
The world that emerges in a market with little oil and a lot of electric, will be shaped to a large degree by what the next U.S. President does.

The next administration stands at the precipice of a new world and must be prepared to understand the fragility, manage the dangers, and above all, harness the opportunities.

Pretty good article that sums up the political stagnation on the act to do something about climate change.

[Only registered users can see links.]

Quote:
Oil and gas companies know that they've all but lost the war of public opinion on the truth of climate change. So instead they have trained their firepower on a single party in a single place in hopes of blocking progress.
Quote:
Look no further than Texas Republican Lamar Smith, the chair of the House Science Committee, who has received nearly $700,000 from oil and gas companies (more than any other industry) and launched a crusade to intimidate scientists at NOAA and the Union of Concerned Scientists over climate research.
Quote:
According to congressional Democrats, plenty of Republicans in the House and Senate know the truth about climate – most of them just won't come out and say it. Whitehouse tells me he knows a dozen Senate Republicans who want to help on climate change but say they can't, for political reasons.

Here is one example of misleading the public on this subject -

It's ironic that Republicans harp on the fact that they are against raising taxes, yet if you watched the Before the Flood doc, the mayor in Florida says he has had to raise taxes to pay for the $400M city renovation due to sea levels rising and creating 'day flooding'.

That's just the start, when this starts affecting more of the US, we will be spending so much on prevention/restoration instead of being proactive today.
