I don't like liars, and I don't like it when self interested business people perpetrate lies to line their pockets.

I didn't like it when the tobacco industry denied the dangers of smoking, and I didn't like it when the petrochemical industry denied human influenced climate change. Their self interested lies are reprehensible to me.

Oil industry knew of 'serious' climate concerns more than 45 years ago

Fortunately, the larger fossil fuel companies are starting to come clean and acknowledge what we already know. They are modifying their own business models and changing their investment strategies.

"We do not fund or support those who deny the reality of climate change.”
Richard Keil, Exxon spokesman
Big oil is now investing in green energy...

Because they know what direction the political winds are blowing (re: onerous regulations, laws, rules, restrictions), guaranteed it isn't climate altruism.
You can thank a politician for your higher energy prices while enjoying the same old ever changing climate.

No, but a sign should be placed over the Electrical Vehicle Charging Station saying “Electric car batteries are hazardous to the environment”.

And the ev's should also have a content label showing all the petroleum products used A-Z in the manufacturing process. Including the by-products that result in the mining of precious metals required for battery manufacturing.

Higher energy prices? They don't affect me.

Do you think ICE cars are manufactured without using petroleum products?.....

Battery technology is in it's infancy and is advancing rapidly.... Lithium may be phased out soon.

Honda is the latest automaker investing in what it sees as the next big breakthrough in battery technology—not more advanced lithium-ion, such as solid-state lithium-ion cells—but entirely different battery chemistry.

"Fluoride-ion batteries offer a promising new battery chemistry with up to ten times more energy density than currently available Lithium batteries. Unlike Li-ion batteries, FIBs do not pose a safety risk due to overheating, and obtaining the source materials for FIBs creates considerably less environmental impact than the extraction process for lithium and cobalt."

Gas station owners would be fools to play politics. Keep business and politics separate, I say.

We need to make it mandatory on the front of cell phones.

Imagine a liberal ranting about the environment in a forum via a phone with "The production of this device used heavy metals and caustic chemicals and contributed to global warming."

Then again, they don't want to change their lives and behavior only others, so I guess they'd just ignore it.
