life without inventions

According to the latest issue of my Kids Discover Magazine -
Major Inventions That Impact Our Life Are:




Radio & Television

Performing Underwear

Performing Underwear?





Well - that certainly covers most of them - wouldn't ya say?

And we do have much to be thankful for - when it comes to these
Really Cool Inventions though - don't we folks?

Take cars - for instance.

KDM says that few inventions have altered the lives of Americans
so greatly as The Car.

But to me Cars have contributed heavily to -


that we face today.

And Air Pollution Is Not A Good Thing - is it folks?

Not To Worry - For We Have The Electric Car - or EV.

EV stands for Electric Vehicle.

~This Really Cool Solution To Air Pollution Is Run By A Lithium Battery

~You Simply Plug It Into An Electrical Outlet Overnight - and voila -
you are good to go the next day - and without all that Really Mean
Air Pollution

~The Best Thing About An Electric Car Is That:


on the down side an electric car is only affordable by Celebrities
and Rich Folks

Still - it's a start - isn't it?

I mean Bill Maher drives one - doesn't he?

Every new technology brings with it a new "ideology".

..."green" cars aren't much different from regular cars, though. They just allow Al Gore to feel good about himself, that's all.

btw - Just how toxic ARE the batteries in electric cars? I can hardly wait until Al Gore tries to dispose of his and finds out that the only place in the nation that will dispose of them has been shut down pending and Environmental Review and SuperFund Cleanup...

The study was commissioned by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, which is jointly funded by the British government and the car industry. It found that a mid-size electric car would produce 23.1 tonnes of CO2 over its lifetime, compared with 24 tonnes for a similar petrol car. Emissions from manufacturing electric cars are at least 50 per cent higher because batteries are made from materials such as lithium, copper and refined silicon, which require much energy to be processed.

Many electric cars are expected to need a replacement battery after a few years. Once the emissions from producing the second battery are added in, the total CO2 from producing an electric car rises to 12.6 tonnes, compared with 5.6 tonnes for a petrol car. Disposal also produces double the emissions because of the energy consumed in recovering and recycling metals in the battery. The study also took into account carbon emitted to generate the grid electricity consumed.

Greg Archer, director of Low CVP, said the industry should state the full lifecycle emissions of cars rather than just tailpipe emissions, to avoid misleading consumers. He said that drivers wanting to minimise emissions could be better off buying a small, efficient petrol or diesel car. “People have to match the technology to their particular needs,” he said.

Ooooops... sorry Bill.
