    LOL.

    The U.S. Is nowhere near a net exporter of oil. Most of the stuff we export is exported because we don't have the ability to refine it here.

    And we have gasoline free vehicles now. And a hydrogen powered one coming on the market soon.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    They sound just like the GOP.

    Not a coincidence.

    Now GOpers are saying the letter was meant as a joke while the 7 rational ones who refused to sign up are speaking out.

    Republicans Admit: That Iran Letter Was a Dumb Idea

    Republican Sen. Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, did not sign the letter.

    “I didn’t think it was going to further our efforts to get to a place where Congress would play the appropriate role that it should on Iran,” Corker told The Daily Beast. “I did not think that the letter was something that was going to help get us to an outcome that we’re all seeking, and that is Congress playing that appropriate role.”
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Excuse me: I should have said "exclusively gasoline-free vehicles."

    Yeah. They exist.

    In fact, Iran has the largest fleet of CNG busses in the world.

    Well, no argument there - I just find it interesting that in this case they may actually be right and not just propagandizing.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Okaaayyyy. . . Exclusively gasoline-free vehicles on the new car market in the U.S. As in, no more gas-powered vehicles available for purchase. Clear enough now?

    Ah, so equivocating the GOP with the biggest suppliers of worldwide terrorism. It's things like that which prevent your posts from garnering any credibility...

    Am I'm all for it. This is, after all, the only planet we have, so we had better take good care of it. And on whole, I think we are.

    I just see no need to force it to happen at the point of a government gun, swimming upstream the whole way, forcing the market to do something that it won't or can't. Better to use the market to make it happen when the time and the technology are 'right'.

    Besides, we already have electric vehicles available in the market, such as the Nissan Leaf and it's competitors. Just that the market hasn't accepted them, and their sales are pretty lousy.

    True. But there's a balance to be struck between forcing the market with the government gun (or trying to), and encouraging the market.
    Heavy handedness, heavy regulations, excessive tax credits, etc. would trend to the former.
