Most electric vehicles won't qualify for federal tax credit

“The $7,500 credit might exist on paper but no vehicles will qualify for this purchase over the next few years.”
Automakers can whine and cry. Automakers pleading poverty and victimhood requires suspending disbelief. The bottom line is that automakers wanting the Federal goodies need to build vehicles that qualify. The Federal government isn't responsible for automaker's incompetent operation of their...
Karine Jean-Pierre stresses peace as online talk of violence ramps up after Mar-a-Lago search

“There is no place for political violence in this country.”
Does this sound like a President who is in charge? The official message is that Biden was completely out of the loop. And a generic milquetoast condemnation of political violence doesn't inspire confidence in Biden's leadership. A compliant press can publish all sorts of argle-bargle about...
Awesomely Weird Alibaba Electric Vehicle of the Week: An ambiguous backwards car

“This funny-looking electric car is nearly symmetrical from the front to the back.”
So, how do you produce an electric car with a $2,264 sticker price? China can do it, apparently. No, it's not a muscle car. No it's not fast, sleek, and loaded with luxury. No, it's not a long range, open road cruiser. But if $3,000 electric cars were available then more people might try...

How the U.S. gave away a breakthrough battery technology to China

“Taxpayers spent $15 million on research to build a breakthrough battery. Then the U.S. government gave it to China.”
So, what's the point of the Federal government spending money on research in the United States? The only research of value in the United States either provides entertainment or tells us how awful things are. Any Federal research that has economic value is given to other countries and provides...
Tonga's eruption injected so much water into Earth's atmosphere that it could weaken the ozone layer

“The atmospheric water vapor could also contribute to global warming.”
Another piece of the puzzle. Pre-industrial CO2 levels in the atmosphere have been attributed to vulcanism. Observation of the Tonga eruption suggests that vulcanism may have also injected water into the atmosphere. Pre-industrial warming of the planet may not have been caused by CO2 alone....
Broken and distrusting: why Americans are pulling away from the daily news
Via: Nerm_L • News Viners • 33 Comments • 5 Likes • 3 weeks ago
“A Reuters Institute survey found that a rising number of people are avoiding the news or just don't believe it”
Opinion isn't news. IMO the problem is that people are being inundated with opinion and actually being provided less news. Reporting the opinion of others is still an opinion piece and not news. Opinions are rather obviously biased. So, the intrusion of opinion into news reporting only...
Kamala Harris caught in word salad when asked if Democrats failed to codify Roe v Wade

“I think that, to be very honest with you, I do believe that we should have rightly believed, but we certainly believe that certain issues are just...”
Kamala Harris certainly cleared that up. Since Harris is a Democrat then whatever she says must be gospel truth. The political buttons have been scrambled so these Democrats don't know how to pander any longer. It wasn't that long ago that Democrats were vigorously virtue signaling that...

“If we are to have any hope of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, we have to embrace the atom.”
Green energy policy has employed financial measures more appropriate for expanding the energy market and increasing consumption of energy. Green energy policy has focused attention on creating markets for new (not yet mature) technology and increasing use of that technology. Alternative energy...

“The state of the economy has Americans in a foul mood.”
Yuppers! It's Putin's fault. It's Trump's fault. It's Alito's fault. It's oil companies' fault. It's guns' fault. We all know the litany of blame. The hell of it is we are in a full employment economy. The labor participation rate hasn't quite recovered to pre-pandemic levels but it's...
