Found this on the interwebs…

That, er, steam? Not dirty. Car OK… So long as we have cheap, efficient, reliable electric power sources…

  1. Hi,
    I think the days of cheap,efficient, reliable electric power sources are going to be a thing of the past, especially the cheap. I was reading in the paper the other day, that if the carbon tax comes in, that down the line we could see rolling blackouts. 😦

    • There is absolutely no pragmatic reason why we can’t have cheap energy/electricity for millenia to come…

      Any increase in cost is pretty much due to ideology.

    1. Co2 good for the Earth
    2. Carbon Monoxide is toxic to humans.

    • And Jill Singer is toxic to good journalism…

    That’s not a car, it’s a motorised peanut.

    • Don’t be bagging on peanuts, brother!

  2. I get the point they’re making, though. The smug people who brag about their “clean” electric cars are often the same mob who demonise coal-fired power plants as “filthy paloodahs” (Julia’s word!).

    Pointing out to them that their “clean green” car is actually a coal-powered car can be a fun exercise 🙂

    • That’s why I mentioned that dirty looking stuff is actually just steam (as you well know, of course).

      It’s a double-whammy… or even a triple-whammy when you factor in future numbers of electric cars with future electricity power bills driven up by ridiculous carbon taxes and renewables.

      I say; put a wand turbine on the roof of every car. Add a “laser” so it can cut through any low-lying bridges.

      Bio-engineer bones and use said material as bio-bone-concrete so the bridges can “grow” back after the “lasers” splice them.

      Hypo-engineer the bio-bone-concrete so said bridges “grow” back quickly and thus don’t become too bumpy!


  3. Is it just me or does the front end of that car look like a shaved catfish?

      It’s you, and you’re carping.
