Humans are the ONLY problem, take humans off the Earth, and it would heal back to a natural state. Not this chemically polluted thing that we have made.

Which tells you who does.

I believe in God.  I believe He created this Universe.  And many others.  I believe He created life.  I believe He created us.  And I believe He expects us to take care of His creations, including this earth, our bodies, and everything else.  That being said.. I do believe He expects us to use common sense and to learn and grow.  So if we can learn how to take better care of this planet, I believe it is in our best interest.  But taking our time, and doing it smartly.  Not rushing to things.

Genesis 1:27,28 (Byington)

 

And God created man in his image; in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them; and God blessed them. And God said to them “Breed and multiply, and fill the earth and subjugate it, and bear empire over the fishes of the sea and the birds of the sky and all the animals that move about on the earth”;

 

Taking care of the home he created for us is the assignment he gave us indeed. One that would have been an easy task had we remained perfect. ?  Not so for the imperfect creatures we became.  :(

Electric cars? Here in Texas. Wind farms off line. We get 23 percent of our power from them, frozen. Nuke plants off line. Even with the abundance of natural gas. There isn’t enough because of poor planning. Worry too much about green energy. So here some 1 million plus people without power in central - south Texas. 7 degrees for the low tonight.

Seriously when did you think this was going to happen?

When did you think we were going to move away from oil to electric? In fifty or a hundred years?

That's what they were thinking 50 and 100 years ago.

 

That pipeline that was cancelled. Was it really going to be needed in the next 10 years?

 

Same with cattle, pigs and chickens. Vegetable based meats will be the main thing in 10 years.

It's time to get out of the meat business.

 

Solar and wind power will advance. Batteries will advance.

Tesla Power Walls are already powering homes during emergencies and it won't be long before the entire grid is not needed.

 

Electric cars will become more popular as the technology advances.

This is after all the 21st century.

 

People need to realize that we're going to move forward away from oil before it runs out completely.

We're consuming all kinds of resources. We're on all seven continents. We're causing the overpopulation of dogs and cats, along with cows and pigs. We'll mess up the planet a lot more if we were to give everybody electric cars.

I had a bumper sticker on my car... save the planet, kill yourself.

When the grid goes down, we'll be wishing for gas generators to recharge our cars.

29 million people in the state of Texas and a little snow storm puts the 'grid' flat on it's arse.

Let's plug in 10 million more cars/truck/busses.

Yep, we're ready for all electric transportation.

There is more to infrastructure than adding outlets.

It's a hard no because the 3500HD won't be going electric. They'll still be has because towing companies use them as tow trucks. Somebody has to save the electric cars that break down on the highway.

Texas isn't built like Montana. Snowbelt states tend to put electrical wires in the ground, deep enough to protect them from the ice. They often use pvc conduit and bury it deep enough to be below the depth of frozen ground during a typical winter weather seasons. This storm is atypical for Texas. Best advice I can Texans right now is to open the cupboard doors under the sink and let your water lines drip. Hot water freezes before cold water because it has less impurities. Good luck you guys. I've dealt with a frozen water line that burst and flooded my house. What a nightmare. Fortunately, it was such a widespread problem at the time that FEMA declared it a natural disaster and that percents my insurance rates from going up.

Last night electricity rolling on for an hour off for on one. Everything rapped and dripping. First night only the cold line to washer froze. Unhook from washer turn on 1/2 hour going again. Last night up every 3 hours run washer. 3 to 6 cold water frozen again. On the very informative news says just drip one and good. Don’t believe it especially at 10 degrees. Funny growing up in New Jersey. I have no recall of dripping or freezing problems.
