I'm not surprised, but there's a campaign in progress, so it's important to remind folks.

It's called soliciting bribes. And really really damaging to have our government run in this kind of transactional impact.

The core policies are:

  • A subsidy which targets cheaper EVs to not-super-rich and limits it to cars with key components made in the US
  • An emissions rule which will effectively force a significant fraction of cars sold to be EVs in a few years
  • subsidies for new factories

Trump will surely get rid of those.

The tariff he hasn't really weighed in on; he seems to think of himself as a mercantilist, so he might keep it.

Kinda happens whether you want it or not

Only way to stop it is to not have plastics

They're actually manufacturing (and installing) huge amounts of wind and solar — It's just that they haven't actually done so at a pace sufficient to start displacing coal burning.

A bill like that passed one house of the state Legislature. It has not been signed by the governor.

And new cars all rat on you already.

Large parts of the state are uncompacted sediment. It does compress and settle as a result. There are a bunch of things you can do though:

  • Stop extracting and burning fossil fuels to slow sea level rise
  • Stop the oil and gas industry from cutting channels through marshes, which causes them to erode quickly
  • Divert sediment from the Mississippi to wetland restoration, raising land levels
  • Help people move when that's the best remaining option

I'd rather Texans figure out what's going on, and change who holds power.

[-] silence7@slrpnk.net 18 points 3 days ago

What's changed is that more need it.

Which is exactly why it's important that they not be allowed to hold any kind of power.
