My husband worked for our local hydroelectric utility. We watch a LOT of protestors. They all want electricity for their pet "green" cars, cell phones, security devices, home heating or cooking, refridgeration or freezing their food or running their computers, but they are out there screaming whenever BC Hydro wants permission to build a new dam.Naive people. Plus, what sells them is the green marketing that followed the global warming /climate change , rhetoric. And it certainly is green. Just look at the cost of everything that falls under that header.
They have Tesla battery charging stations at mini-markets here. Takes about 45 minutes for a full charge.
In the domestic hybrid cars, their batteries when needing replacement run about $5,000.00.
I don't have the stomach to check to see how much the Tesla battery would cost.
But all that green energy stuff that's marketed is actually toxic to the environment and people.
What both of us wonder is where they think their rechargeable electric vehicle is supposed to get the juice from to run??????
We shake our heads, and then for kicks count how many of the greenies are wearing clothing or glasses that are made from hydrocarbons which is their other big peeve. (most wear polar fleece, Goretex type jackets, polycarbonate glasses lenses and frames, high tech running shoes with neoprene or other type soles and carry cell phones.)
One of the problems with these glaciers (and we get all the propaganda when we go on an Alaskan cruise) is that these people can't explain why some glaciers are growing while others recede. There's a lot of nonsense spouted by the park rangers as the ships sail past the glaciers, and they rely on people nodding in agreement with their wisdom, not spotting any contradictions.
There is one big one that is now going forward again, but it galloped forward, 300 years ago --before global warming was a thing, and knocked out a village, the villagers having to race for their lives. Then it melted away to allow a bay to re-emerge but the face remains active and occaisionally threatens the bay again. The scientists thought the native people were just exaggerating, but eventually realized it was the truth.
And we have been there in years where the ice is so bad it's blocked off the side channel and some where you can see the water is clear up the side channel.
I think it's the Hubbard, but can't recall.
