The last 2 election cycles, more minorities voted than ever before. Wtf are you taking about?

Oh, like the democrats didn't declare Trump an illegitimate president first and then try to remove him via the completely fabricated Russia-gate inquiry and two ridiculous and unfounded impeachments? 

The left doesn't have any standards except for double standards. 

The impeachments were legal constitutional processes based on the clearly unconstitutional acts of Trump. Particularly the second impeachment which was for the unconstitutional attempted coup.

Thanks to wild hysterical Green ideas and government Green policies, energy prices are on a skyrocket upward move,

https://oilprice.com/Latest-Energy-News/World-News/Energy-Prices-Rose-59-In-2021.html

"Energy prices at the end of 2021 were 59% higher than they were at the beginning of the year, according to a new report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

The boom in energy prices—which was more than the gains seen by other commodities—was largely the result of economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. Most other commodity prices in the S&P Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI) saw about a  20% increase, with the exception of precious metals, which saw a decline.

Within the energy portion of the commodity index that tracks the performance of global commodities markets, RBOB (wholesale gasoline) saw the largest gain at 67%, followed by heating oil, then WTI and Brent. Gasoil and natural gas rounded out the energy segment of the GSCI.

WTI and Brent saw a 62% and 55% gain, respectively."

Especially when Trump sold out our Kurdish allies.

Maybe so, I guess you think that the massive failures of Biden are comparable. I am sure that Trump took advice on his decision with his Secretary of State. Please tell me why you think you know the pros and cons and all the details.

Musk has been selling billions of dollars of stock. I am not sure that he thinks he can continue to compete against the other companies. If not, the stock will fall. I wish him well though, he is a genius.

You are really scraping the bottom of the barrel. The 10 people who live in such ridiculous places are welcome to keep driving their plug in hybrids.

Do you have a brain, car/truck prices in the US pretty much the same all through North and South America and Europe and in Japan...South Korea, Africa etc etc etc .......When is the last time you left your trailer park ???? They selling cars in Canada on the cheap??? 15k new Pickups in Calgary???? did not think so..... Autos is a world market and the prices are pretty much the same everywhere for the same style vehicle unless you are buying a golf cart in China or a car with only one seat.

 

The cost of batteries has fallen and the cost is no longer a reason there will be a big difference in price between an EV and an ICE vehicle.

what a joke , the goof ball ran the car for 7.3 hours and drove only 109 Miles..

2:09 Starting the drive
3:52 50% charge dissipated
8:02 90% charge dissipated
9:27 End of drive

 

 

 He traveled 109 miles in 7.3 hours???? How many miles ,to the gallon ,do you get sitting in your car for 7.3 hours in bitter cold temp with the heat blasting away while parked?  10? How long does a full tank of gas last while parked,running and  in the bitter cold?

New solar shingle debuting at CES 2022 can be nailed directly to your roof

Timberline Solar Energy Shingles from GAF Energy go in place with just a nail gun. Installing solar could be faster than ever.

Timberline Solar Energy Shingles can be nailed directly to the roof.

GAF This story is part of CES, where CNET covers the latest news on the most incredible tech coming soon.
 

People looking to add rooftop solar to their homes are getting a new option from a company with a long track record in roofing. GAF Energy, sister company to the roofing giant GAF, is expanding its rooftop solar offerings with a new solar shingle garnering awards at CES 2022. The new solar shingle can be incorporated with GAF shingles to create a solar roof that GAF Energy is calling Timberline Solar.

Timberline Solar Energy Shingles can be easily installed with traditional shingles since both are put up with the same tool, a nail gun. That means installation should be faster. A spokesperson said the company has "consistently seen install times that are half that required for rack-mounted solar." Installation is typically the largest expense for residential solar energy systems. Timberline Solar will be cheaper than other solar roofs (about half of what Tesla's solar roof costs) and be comparable to the cost of a new roof with rack-mounted solar panels, a spokesperson said.

A nice ad. This technology has been "coming" for many years. I hope it has finally arrived. Real references would be nice. Facts.

Mercedes Vision EQXX battery, aero tech destined for new compact in 2024 or 2025

It's closer than you might think.

That entire rear end might be tricky to get into production, given ever-tightening crash standards, but we'd love to be proven wrong.

Mercedes-Benz

Concept cars often offer a glimpse of what a buyer might expect to see on dealership lots in the near future. The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX goes a little beyond that -- it's more of a research and development project taken to the extreme. So, in addition to aesthetics, there's a fair bit more we can expect from the EQXX to translate to production vehicles, and it shouldn't take very long to arrive.

On a conference call following the debut of the Mercedes Vision EQXX, Chief Technology Officer Markus Schäfer said that the company intends to begin series production of EVs containing the EQXX's battery tech some time in 2024 or 2025. These advancements will land first on a new compact-car platform that could use some of the active aerodynamics found in the concept, as well.

Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX is ready for a serious road trip

 See all photos

Schäfer didn't give away too many details -- we're still years out from this all becoming reality, after all, and plenty of things are subject to change between now and then -- but it all sounds pretty promising. Especially the battery technology, which when combined with the EQXX's slippery design offers a manufacturer-estimated range of 621 miles, far in excess of anything on the market as of this writing.

The EQXX's battery is mighty impressive. To reduce reliance on range-sapping ancillary systems, the EQXX's underbody channels air to help shed waste heat. The battery pack itself features a new anode composition that improves its energy density, in addition to an arrangement that prioritizes lower weight and opening more room for the cells themselves. The hardware required to run everything is placed elsewhere in the vehicle to help make this happen. How much of this will translate to a production vehicle remains to be seen, but Schäfer did at least confirm that the battery chemistry is part of this.

There are a whole lot of neat innovations under the EQXX's skin, and Mercedes buyers will get to reap those benefits sooner than later.

Mercedes-Benz

Active aerodynamics are part of the reason why the EQXX's design is able to stretch the battery to such a range. On a smaller scale, a number of powered shutters can stay closed to keep air moving in the most efficient direction, only opening to provide cooling to the parts of the car when needed. Systems like these, usually contained in the grille or front bumper, are already on vehicles being sold to customers. The active rear diffuser, deploying at high speeds to channel the air effectively, is a different story. Something like this would either need to pass current crash-standard muster, which could prove tricky, or the laws would need to change to accommodate engineering solutions for more efficient electric vehicles.

Again, it's unclear just how much we'll see in 2024 or 2025. But, if Schäfer's words are any indication, the concept car you see here will be a guiding light for the near future beyond just design language.

The world, you dumb dink, does not 1.5 billion people make. Try India, China, and Africa. Yep. They're not spending $50K on status/virtue signal shit-boxes. I live in a very affluent neighborhood in NW Calgary. Sounds like a projection of your situation. Unfortunate you suck at life. 

People would love to buy a new vehicle for $15K in Canada, and everywhere else in Western Style Democracies, let alone pickup trucks. Well, the F150 Lightning just went up about $30K, so now it's topping $70K.

Lol. Neither impeachments were based in factual reality. Just a political grudge and aren't taken seriously by anyone, anywhere.

It's difficult to buy any vehicle right now.  Be honest and accept supply chain issues are effecting gas vehicle sales as well.

Other than all the lawyers and greater than 50% of the US voting population... you live in some MAGA fantasy even though you live in Canada.

Please leave as quickly as possible.  When R. Notely wins the next election by a huge landslide you will get a greater taste of reality.  

Kenny screwed the right so far they will suffer for a long time.   Just like trump - an embarrassment

Note the Nobel laureate was not an author of that paper.

You may also hate that your reference is pro-vaccination:

"We believe that the evidence to date supports the worldwide extension of IVM treatments for COVID-19, complementary to immunizations."

Kudos for promoting the science you hate.

Conclusions: In comparison to SOC or placebo, IVM did not reduce all-cause mortality, length of stay or viral clearance in RCTs in COVID-19 patients with mostly mild disease. IVM did not have an effect on AEs or severe AEs. IVM is not a viable option to treat COVID-19 patients.

Very simply because I believe it should be easy for everyone to vote and I don't support attempting a coup if my side loses the election, basically the definition of democracy. The definition of arrogance is not being able to accept that you lost even after all your stupid audits concluded that you lost.

You mean if your Democrat, it should be easy to vote 50 times whilst throwing Republican votes in the trash bin?

The world is watching the joke of what you call elections in the USA. Here in Australia, you all are what as known as a "bunch of Galah's". So much for the world leading democracy? One moment you have "hanging chads", the next it is outright theft and fraud. Biden is even more illegitemate than Bush was and now the old faggot is saying that Australia cannot have nuclear weapons while China and North Korea are allowed to point them at us coz we host ur intelligence apparatus?
