Michael Moore is out with a new film the media will hype but most Americans will never see. This speaks well of the latter and poorly of the former.
In a Reuters story promoting Moore's latest, he admits:
Moore said that he, like many people, thought electric cars were a good idea, but I didnt really think about where is the electricity coming from?
That's awesome. Moore has been going around for decades promoting politicians and policies that would basically wreck the economy. He wanted a coronavirus-level economic tsunami before we'd ever heard of Wuhan and its bats.
But he had no idea what he was talking about. He continues.
I assumed solar panels would last for ever. I didnt know what went into the making of them, Moore added, referring to raw materials, including quartz, and the fossil fuels needed to manufacture the panels.
What's the word I'm looking for here? Oh, right. Clueless. Michael Moore is clueless.
I know, that's probably not news to most of our readers. But it's nice to see it confirmed from his own mouth. Michael Moore has pushed medical policy despite having no clue about it, and he has pushed environmental policy despite having no clue about that too.
Let's take electric cars. They're not powered by peace, love and boutique dispensary pot. They're powered by a combination of oil, coal, natural gas, and the most heinous form of energy to some of the left -- nuclear power -- along with wind and solar. So that environmentally conscious and ostentatious Tesla you see zipping down the road isn't any better, really, than your gas car. Its emissions and consequences are just transferred from right where it is to somewhere else. If you're anti-nuke, electric cars are far worse.

That just proves he’s intellectually incurious.
Right-leaning pundits have been writing about the sophistry of coal-powered cars for years.
In America, even utter fools can get rich. Ain’t it grand?
It comes from oranges mikey. Oranges.
“That just proves hes intellectually incurious.”
They all are. Don’t think or analyze for themselves. Must rely on trusted authority.
Its like AOC talking about plans to change the US energy sector.
A $6 Trillion a year industry, with millions of workers, on which modern life itself depends
And shes somehow qualified to meddle in it.
Doesn’t it come from little power fairies?
“Here’s your sign.”
“That just proves hes intellectually incurious.”
Could be a movie: Incurious Bastards
A few years ago the lib across the street bought s battery operated car. He was so proud to show it to me. 1st thing I said was “you know where the other end of that charging cord goes to right?”. He looked at me like I had lobsters crawling out of my ears...clueless
Fat Mike should buy one of those exploding golf cart electric cars and report back next Dec when he’s stuck in a snow drift freezing his fat @$$ off.
Hey! two points, or more. It’s good that he is starting to question the conventional “wisdom,” and thinking through. Another thing is he is at least slightly influential. maybe a few other people will, at his initiative, start to doubt not just this, but other things they have been told and come to believe as gospel truth.
Don’t kid yourselves. Michael the Hutt has known forever where the juice comes from. However, to acknowledge the fact would damage his “big company bad” mantra.
And without that mantra, he couldn’t make enough money to go quart for quart with Nancy Antoinette on the ice cream front.
Attach a windmill generator and a solar collector to your garage, FatBoy, and ONLY use what they produce to power your green buggy.
The lack of a high school education always surfaces
Heh, there was a Freeper who boasted that he would carry a supply of bumper stickers that said “I (heart) My Coal Powered Car!” and when he saw an unattended Prius with Lefty stickers on it, would slap that one on their car when they weren’t looking!
Hold your nose, and have a look.
Heh, there are a LOT of different ways that concept could go, and nearly all of them good...
There’s no problem with having cheap electricity for electric cars, or for anything else, without using any fossil fuels or nuclear energy.
All we have to do is wrap the corpses of America’s founders with copper wire. Then surround them with magnets and put them back in their graves.
That way, the electricity created by their rapid rotations as they turn in their graves will be unlimited.
Problem solved forever.
