An interesting article on the lies EV owners tell.

I see how deluded some folk are. You don't have to lose your objectivity and sense of perspective just because of the powertrain you are sat on.

Cloud seeding was one of the attributes of HAARP - they seed the atmosphere and then super heat the ions for the desired effect. If you're looking for them to admit they do weather manipulations VIA Google and Wikipedia, you're going to have a rough time



Also, this is normal - right?
Mate . After 50 years this is just coming out? It's only Wikipedia, I don't believe everything I read in the news.

You cant charge without anxiety and at high cost as you don't have home charger and then insurance is astronomical. There are a lot of bitter pills being swallowed

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying?
This is clearly HAARP and geo engineering. You can watch the 3 minute video.

The government has been weaponizing weather since AT LEAST Vietnam - it's declassified information.

I guess the research project I participated in almost 30 years ago concerning potential off gas explosions with EVs in a home garage setting has come full circle.

Not a lot of options available except for to cave, or to call the cops (won't be "appreciated" by the gang) or to flee the area with what's left of battery power and call a flatbed truck.

It could have ended very badly for the one firefighter shown in the video outside of the house. The door hit him square in the head. If he hadn't been wearing his helmet, he'd be dead.

Is it the attachment to the ICE that tends to result in the acceptance of the idea that climate change was a lie, or was it the initial skepticism of climate change that turned these people off to the EV?

I think that people don't like things mandated by our .gov and meddling in our daily lives thinking (I use that term loosely) that they know what's best for us, one size fits all.

I saw this in a pro ev YouTube video(the fully charged show) ..the lead commentator was saying..

you create batteries it gets refurbished, repaired or recycled and you burn fossil fuel ..its gone..nothing.

I'm no scientist but I thought burning fuel makes co2 plants crops and trees absorb co2 and sunlight and create oxygen and then grow give fruits shade and nesting grounds and they die and get buried to create coal etc.

If a government creates policy based on a study, and we don't like that these polices meddle in our daily lives, then the logical thing to do is to reject the validity of the study?

Maybe burning fossil fuels would be good for the plants if CO2 were the only byproduct.

What? Most of, if not all of these studies are funded by the government. They are (and have been) paying for a result.

Climate change is man made - it’s literally created and manipulated by the government.

What does that have to do with coal oxidation byproducts? You don't need government funding to burn something and measure the results. We did that in labs in college.
