    Damn, you should qualify for a “pleasure” vehicle insurance discount.

    I don’t know much about the climate changes nor actually care. But my raptor is getting 4 weeks to the gallon right now.

    Leaving the planet isn't a matter of cost, it's a matter of it being physically impossible given not only modern tech but we currently know of physics. Again, we do invest in renewable energy. The question is, how much more do you think we should be investing?

    Are you under the impression that DT has changed the way people think about climate change? He hasn't changed anyone's minds, he's pretty much a reflection of what people already believe If the Democrats, had someone impeached Trump, what do you think would have happened to what people believe about climate change? The answer is, absolutely nothing.

    Except that we've actually witnessed people die from complications related to smoking. The devastation you're claiming will come due to pollution isn't something anybody's ever witnessed before. And even if climate does change, we won't know whether it occurred because of human intervention or the earth's natural cycle. Trying to equate something we've witnessed to a prediction no one has ever seen before is rather weak arguement.

    Except none of those Drs have actually seen the outcome you're claiming. And no, you didn't talk to 10,000 doctors, the media told you 10,000 think this. Of those 10,000, some of them aren't sure, but we'll count them anyway. And many of those haven't done the research themselves, they're just going with the crowd. And many of them aren't going to dare disagree since it puts their funding at risk.

    Again, what are you claiming needs to be done, other than a vague 'more'? Are you in the AOC camp where the world will end in 10 years if we don't pass her green new deal? We should just give our money to other countries through the Paris Accords? Maybe something in between? Should you be forced to give up your Raptor? What do you want?

    Didn’t have time to read through all the posts, but I still to make my 50 mile round trip to the office everyday. My baby is up to 15mpg and filled up 3/4 of a tank yesterday with 91(highest around here without searching) for $45. I’m doing ok.

    Holy dogshit, Batman. A thread about saving miles, cheap gas, nowhere to go, and it blows up like Krakatoa East of Java.

    I’ve been throwing my fat bike in the back of my truck and heading to the trails. I’ve been at homey depot buying lumber for my wife’s projects, mulch, been going to shop, just ride around. Plenty to do.

    I gotta take my Rap out at least once a week to stretch its legs, i let it run around on the freeway until its tired. Raptors cannot be caged up, they need open roads...

    this has been fairly entertaining. while @Denvertaco07 is largely ounumbered, it has been polite for the most part with nobody calling the other a "fucking idiot" yet.......

    Go to Kroger and buy a bunch of gift cards to Lowe's, go to Lowe's and buy a bunch of gas cans and fuel stabilizer, go to Shell and use the Kroger fuel points to fill said gas cans. Buy it cheap now, save it for later
