    He's not talking about appeals, Sock. Pivot fallacy.

    You filthy bastards!
    Climate cannot change.
    Cherry picking glaciers that are retreating is ignoring glaciers that are advancing or just staying relatively the same.

    it is not possible to measure the total snow and ice on Earth.
    It is not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth.
    It is not possible to measure the global atmospheric CO2 content.

    You have no data.

    No gas or vapor has the capability to warm the Earth. You cannot create energy out of nothing.

    I guess you don't think all those taxis and trucks exist.

    I guess you haven't notice that New York City is dying.

    You fail.

    Pay attention: The whole point here is that (1) The OP stands valid no matter what other cases were lost...that's why I say score ONE for the good guys. (2) History show transportation to rural areas with lesser population can be done if there is a will of the people via their congress. It's just a matter of putting people first and profit second. THAT is the main issue. Case in point: the architect of Long Island, Nassau County in New York purposely structured the urban landscape so public transportation to the beach from predominantly minority areas would be difficult at best.....despite ample population and location. Yet you have an expensive rail system to certain towns where the well-to-do professionals and such live that is NOT as well populated as the rest of the island.

    Get it now? If not, then you'll just stubbornly repeat your assertion to the point of insipidness as usual.
    Learn what 'fact' means, Sock.

    That is the type of authoritarian and govt intervention Terry ALWAYS applauds as he has done with support for all historical and current ICE and Oil and Gas subsidies, while screaming against EV and Green Energy ones.

    Terry is perfectly consistent in this area, so i give him that credit. All his views come down to, 'if i support the area then i want all the gov't subsidies, in any form and i will deny they are actually subsidies. If i do not support the area, than any gov't dollars given should never be done as they impact the market'. He is consistent in his hypocrisy.
    You're hallucinating again, Sock.

And reread my post as it was not entirely about about ICE's push. Another key factor is zoning and urban sprawl, which again, is a choice by gov't that ends up impacting public transit.

    So it is your premise Terry that all of this, when it goes the direction you support, is all just free market, free of gov't finger on which way things go, when that is NOT TRUE and is especially not true on any of the areas you support (ICE, O&G) and where you deny they have been amongst the biggest subsidy takers in American history, and yet you claim neither industry has ever received any form of subsidy.

    that is the extent of how ridiculous you are Terry. You actually claim neither ICE nor Oil and Gas has ever received any form of subsidy, while EV has based on your supporting one (ICE and O&G) and not supporting the others (Ev, Renewable energy).
    Oil and gasoline do not receive subsidies. Internal combustion engines designers and builders do not receive government subsidies.

    EVs do though. There are government subsidies and mandates for charging stations, for the batteries and for the EV's themselves.

    Both oil and natural gas are renewable energy. Neither a battery nor an EV is renewable energy.

    My point being that YOU are delusional if you think such disasters are minimalized/avoided through private enterprise. Do a little research into how private enterprise with regards to Texas' power grid handled the recent weather induced nationwide grid shut down. Interesting reading.
    Yup.

    As always Terry is the one who needs to STFU as he is always speaking about things he does not know anything about.

    It is almost always industry groups fighting and lobbying to keep safety practices being implemented across the board. You cannot even get big Rail companies to put better brakes on trains to avoid the catastrophic derails as they would rather not over haul the fleet and will just pay insurance premiums to cover the cost of the wrecks, as they take in record profits.

    The government could force them to overhaul the brakes and they would make 'less' profit while they amortize that cost, but they spends millions lobbying politicians to block it.

    This is the norm for so many 'safety' type situations where the companies would rather gamble with insurance and take the risk.

    Yep. And let's not forget the MAGA GOP under the Orange Oaf pushing laws to pull the teeth from organizations like OSHA (of which I think the Shrub took a crack at as well).

    Oh well, like the subject title says "score one for the good guys".
    During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
