Personal attack


The article, The Lithium Gold Rush: Inside the Race to Power Electric Vehicles in the far from "denier" New York Times (link), points out that there is much environmental damage from manufacturing electirc automobiles. An excerpt from the article states:

Electric Cars Are Not Particularly Green - Blowing Up Mountain Not Environmental Virtue

The mine, constructed on leased federal lands, could help address the near total reliance by the United States on foreign sources of lithium.

But the project, known as Lithium Americas, has drawn protests from members of a Native American tribe, ranchers and environmental groups because it is expected to use billions of gallons of precious ground water, potentially contaminating some of it for 300 years, while leaving behind a giant mound of waste.

“Blowing up a mountain isn’t green, no matter how much marketing spin people put on it,” said Max Wilbert, who has been living in a tent on the proposed mine site while two lawsuits seeking to block the project wend their way through federal courts.
While the U.S.'s pall-mall race towards reliance on electric cars may signal virtue, it is far from harmless. The reflex to protect the earth has merit; not all actions taken in its name are beneficial.

Please advise if this is the wrong place for this topic. If it is please move it or ask me to repost.

The way it saves lives is to ensure there are hospital spaces, for car crash victims and persons in need of appendectomies as well as Covid. The virus would have have gone away by locking everyone into their places of living.
The virus would have have gone away. Please change to "The virus would not have gone away"

What a terrible idea.

In the name of equity.......let's punish achievers.

I have no problem with the OP. The typo "accellerated" in the title is annoying. I doubt that the OP poster would mind its being fixed.

Would Nanci Peolosi and Maxine Waters Have Been George Floyd's Buddy on May 24, 2020?

Would Nanci Peolosi and Maxine Waters Have Been George Floyd's Buddy on May 24, 2020? Would Al Sharpton have befriended Michael Brown in 2013? These "leaders" find it easy to be friends with a dead criminal. Would they have helped, before their deaths, get them jobs or steered them in the right direction?

How many roads must a man walk down...

This post came in and was deleted. Since I didn't see a TOS violation I reposted it. Please delete if that is not "kosher."

I don't think suicide is illegal anymore in most places.
In some states suicide is a capital offense, particularly a successful one.Maybe a bit off-color. Delete if you think so. I intend humor, not to be infracted.

I don't know if this is a personal attack against ElijahAustin or Erieguy but I know it's not appropriate.
