Muddled Science and Politics

Electric cars produce more carbon than gas cars over 100,000 miles on average, if you include the 100 barrels of oil is used to fabricate a single electric car battery. But then again, maybe more carbon dioxide would be better—providing the earth with less ice but more greenery. Is that better for the earth or worse? Who knows! It's a very bad mix of bad science, bad politics, and bad economics . . . all sans the fear of God and humility. Government has turned into a respecter of persons, a godlike entity determining good and evil for itself and controlling all life on planet earth. The anxiousness to state control has produced an over-eagerness to accept every wild hypothesis without sufficient repeatable tests and honest scientific conclusions concerning probabilities, to include alpha and beta risks. It's an unholy alliance of businesses (Tesla), government (regulatory credits), and bad scientists (Al Gore).
