Studies find that estimated emissions to fabricate an EV battery can be high as carbon emissions from a lifetime of fuel burned by an efficient conventional car.

Focus on making more cars to fight climate change is the ultimate greenwash.

The notion that #solarpower is pointless where it's not sunny year round is a fallacy. Besides the fact that silicon solar panels still generate electricity when it's overcast (this argument WAS a lot more valid when we only had thermal based solar electricity), even if it only worked for the summer, it's still substantial because electricity demands peak during the summer due to the need for air conditioning. If solar covered just the A/C power demands, it'd be worth it.

I hate the people who praise #AmongUs for being "so innovative in #gaming". It's not. It's literally the digital version an ancient schoolyard game called Werewolf, Mafia, or The Hunt depending on where you grew up.
