Global Cooling author recants.

Maybe the message here is don't listen to the alarmists on "climate" no matter what they say.

I can see it in 2040: "Sorry about all those taxes and destroying the economy, it was never really happening."

It's about wealth distribution. Too bad there's
none left to distribute.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Lots of green paper, more being printed every day. Too bad the current admin and 47% of the population think you can live off the past without making new wealth for the future.

Some days I almost can't wait for the Chinese to take over and straighten this nonsense out.


That's an interesting article. So they design an electric car, then they produce the minimum number they need to meet CA law, and sell them for whatever fraction of the cost that they can, and take the financial loss.

Over 25,000 Nissan Leafs have been sold in the US 62,000 around the world since the car went on sale in late 2010. Average sales are about 2000 per month.

Fiat has sold 3000 of these 500e cars in 10 months.

It seems like it would be cheaper to simply purchase 300 cars from Nissan and resell them at a $5K loss than to go through all that trouble and lose $14K per car.

What you suggest is a simple version of the business plan for Tesla. My suggestion is sell the "new" cars out of state then put them on the lot as "used" cars, just been filtered through a super-dealer in Phoenix. Give the same new incentives somehow. The feds screwed up when they allowed CARB to have the same power as the EPA in the 1960s.

Oh, Canada!

Canada bars meteorologists from talking about global cooling, global warming. climate change.

Predict the weather right a week out, then maybe we can talk longer term trends?
