    At this point I wonder how long we will be allowed to drive ICE cars, I stumbled onto a electric car site and all the millennial and gen Z's were chomping at the bit for electric cars to take over and seemed almost hateful that gasoline cars are allowed to operate despite most new cars putting out hardily any emissions. At this rate maybe I should look for that rare escort/lynx electric converted cars from the 80s that way when the government forces us to electric I can still have a stick shifted 80s electrobox without all the tracking devices the new electric cars will surely have.

    that first one looks super clean. where are these guys at? electric cars do more harm to the earth than gas cars. the mining of battery materials is ridiculous.

    Not to mention the manufacture of those battery materials to make a battery.

    I can't corroborate it but at one point Toyota had a plant up in Canada making batteries for their Prius. The factory was in the forest outside the city limits. Apparently they started noticing the deforestation surrounding them and wrote it off as some sort of bug infestation. Once the authorities came in and started snooping around they realized it was the pollution the battery manufacturer was putting out that was doing that.

    I say it's better for the environment to keep these cars on the road since none of the parts needed need to be newly manufactured hence less pollution.
