    Not me, isn't it just as strange for YOU to believe YOUR scientists when they tell you its NOT us?

    Same thing, innit? (Except for the whole fossil fuel industry motive for deception thing)

    Basin' one's opinions on those damn lyin' scientists?

    We should torture them to find out which ones are lying.

    (I like the whole idea of electric vehicles, so I hope its your guys)

    They're not sold by volts.

    Amp hours and "C" rates are the relevant factors. Most cells being 3.3 volts.

    And were you asking for overall lithium cell sales, or only vehicle grade cells?

    Or perhaps a breakdown of some kind based on the various chemistries?

    Or were you asking about the chevy volt?

    Or those fools who bought all those ridiculously expensive handmade horseless carriages?

    Stinkin' up the air and scarin' the livestock.

    Eventually forcing the closure of hundreds of wagon and buggy whip shops.

    Which destroyed our economy and our country in the process.

    Well, we should be saying that combating pollution is a good thing no matter if global warming is a massive left-wing conspiracy to bankrupt the coal companies and usher in a socialist utopia or not. The partisan rhetoric going on here is insane. I am literally convinced that if Obama woke up tomorrow and said "I changed my mind, global warming is a hoax" some people here would suddenly change sides.

    Can't we just agree that less pollution is a good thing? Global warming or not, if you think car exhaust is good, go breathe it for 5 minutes and tell me how that works out for you.
