this, i think that in order for not only electric cars but the whole green revolution in general to happen, it has to benefit the most common person in america, you average lower middle class person. until it benefits people who have no reason to use the three r's, it aint gonna happen.
for example, jimmy redneck saved up all the beer cans him and his roomates drank for like 3 months. they were all crushed, shit ton of aluminum. he drives 45 mins to turn it all in and gets like 15 dollars. whats the point of my going out my way to recycle he asks? it doesn't benefit me, in fact i loose money. next time i'll just throw those cans in the trash.
recycling is like the most basic "green" thing to do am i right? if you can't convice someone to recycle, how are you going to tell them to turn all of their lights off when they go out? how are you goign to tell them to buy an electric car? my sad but true point is, until mr and mrs common americans start making a little bit of green off this whole thing, they aren't going to go out of their way to use their heads when it comes to the subject
dont know how many have seen this bloombox.
Ignorant conservative americans can suck my dick when it comes to having anything government subsidized. would you leave a child to die cuz the parents cant afford the healthcare, or would you say here, take the few tax dollars i pay and live the rest of your life.
it is the same arguement when it comes to environmental efforts by the government, only its the human race and all of your children who are at stake. FUCK OIL COMPANIES AND FUCK ANYONE WHOS THAT SELFISH AS THEY CANT EVEN SPARE THEIR 13% FOR ANYONE ELSE WHO NEEDS HELP, NOT TO MENTION THE BENEFITS YOU YOURSELF ARE REAPING.
