Nothing to see here. Move right along. This is just what actually fuels an Electric Vehicle (EV). And please, please, please don’t consider the fully weighted comparative environmental costs of your brand now, sparkly, virtue vehicle. 😛

Yeah, not only do electric vehicles (EVs) normally cost about 20% more than either their traditional and hybrid counterparts, the cost of replacing their battery pack/deck is way more than anything normal people would condone. For now, that sort of makes me laugh, since it’s harming the Liberals, Progressives, and other Ecotards and Warmists who want to signal their virtue and orthodoxy by buying and conspicuously driving one.
The way I’ve always figured things, if you want to harm yourself for your faith, cool; more power to you and, even if we’re enemies, I have, do, and will always respect you for your sacrifice. I mean, I’ll be annoyed by your incessant proselytizing and virtue signalling, but I will always acknowledge that you put your faith first, before you comfort or material success.
But the problem is that these Warmists who are apparently shaping the domestic policies of the Democrat party are not in the least bit satisfied with practicing their religion. Oh no! As creatures like Biden and the other Dems in political power have shown, these Warmists have their own Great Commission and certainly don’t hesitate to enact Conversion by the Sword.
Why do you think Biden forced unprecedented fuel prices upon we, the People? Why do you think that SCOTUS had to explicitly tell the EPA that they couldn’t force the governments of the individual states to change their power production to something “green”?
This is America. If the Left wants to sacrifice their wealth and freedoms for the sake of their religion of Global Warming, fine! If they want to preach their faith in or on the streets? Fine! It’s when they try to force their face upon others that we have a problem.
Onshore wind farms should be required to paint their turbines in something similar to this manner and place kill stickers on them so that people and Leftists know the true cost of ecologically friendly, sustainable power generation. 👿
But, it’s not like any of the Left will really care that much. After all, “Global Warming” has never really been about cooling the planet or being more “Green.” It’s always been just a front and con used in attempt to drag down the Civilized World so that there’d be more Equity.
Forget smoking while pumping gas, think about trying to charge your electric car in the rain! Now that’s risky! 😆 Zzzzzaaaaaap!
Back in 2014, Colorado completely legalized the use, sale, and growing of marijuana, the latter both by individuals and by commercial/agricultural concerns. This was hailed as a landmark in “progress,” both by the ever-drug-loving Leftists and many Libertarian sorts. And, indeed, there seems to have been little, if any, human damage or negative consequences caused by Colorado’s drug experiment.
But What About The Ecological Consequences?
With marijuana now growing all around The Centennial State, it follows that mice, rats, voles, rabbits, and various varieties of squirrels will be eating the seeds and some of the vegetation. This would both end up concentrating the cannabinoids in those prey species’ tissues, and make them both more unaware and sluggish. Hence, those rodents and similar prey animals would be easier for various predators to catch and consume.
So yeah! Stoner owls – owls both primarily subsisting upon small, terrestrial prey and being a major predator thereof – look likely to be an unforeseen, probably negative, ecological consequence of Colorado’s legalization of the use and growing of marijuana.
So… Stoned owls. That’ll be “fun.” 😛
