So Biden is planning on cancelling the keystone pipline on day one. Wonder how badly this will effect us trappers. Gas prices are already going up here. Apparently Canada plans to sue over it so it could get ugly.

All drilling and fraking will cease, he told everyone he would do that, we have to save the climate!

Real problem is going to be all of these coal fired power plants that went to a natural gas because Trump had so much drilling going on was a steady supply of it. Gas wells get shut off no gas to the power plant thus no electricity to your house! I guess if we're going back to horse and buggy days we may as well live in darkness too.

The electric age is just starting to grow. Soon gas will be used less.

Still going to need fossil fuels to generate enough electricity to charge your battery in your death trap 'green' car!

We already have a Tesla charging station here, town of about 7,000 people. The infrastructure for it is constantly being worked on, but we are a long way off from getting away from gas completely. The rural communities will continue to use gas and diesel for a long while yet. But the more people that switch to electric, the less demand there will be for gas, less demand =lower price.

Jtrapper, there was a time when a guy on a cart pulled by a team of horses would have called your gas pickup a kooky death trap. 150 years ago nobody ever would have imagined that everyone would own a vehicle capable of driving from Washington to New York in less than two days. Times change, technologies evolve, cling to the past if you want to buy the future is more exciting

Bob, how is your electricity generated?
The majority of electric cars simply burn fossil fuels further away, because that's how most electricity is generated. Wind power is a fraud, and solar power is a long, long way from catching up, if there is even enough real estate harvest enough. And let's not forget how many hydroelectric damns were removed in the last 30 years in the name of the trending "environmentalism."

Electricity is fantastic, but it comes from somewhere. You're just using energy further away. If fossil fuel prices rise, electricity prices will rise. The only difference is that the Feds will probably subsidize electric rates to create the illusion of efficiency.

All this talk of all these electric modes of transportation fail to consider where the power is going to come from to produce, maintain, and build them, and if you think its going to come from solar panels, you're naive. Without mining, you have none of it. That takes energy and lots of it. Whats going to supply the charging stations? Fossil fuels thats what.

Can't wait to see junk yards with those toxic batterys in them also, sure that won't harm the environment a bit.

The nearest town that size is a hour away.

Yeah, exciting! Until the total carbon footprint per mile is less than fossil fuels it's just a big lie. Next thing you know they will be making fake fur....

Shut down a clean coal power plant, and replace it with a green cogeneration power plant, burning garbage, ground tires and wood byproducts. Paris Climate Accord...Here we go footing the bill again.

I predict $20 coat coon that only cost the trapper $19.50 to produce per pelt.
