heres a thought to ponder thats way out in left field like religion, democrats winning the next election, and an actual ED drug that works and is cheap.

suppose we leave all that bad oil and gas in the ground to save the earth.....in theory its a great idea right???? earth saved and generations forever live happily on grass and oats

well, what happens when the tectonic plates continue to move around and a volcano pops up right in the middle of that oil or gas field???? hmmmmm?????

it will be fire and brimstone, burning up whats left of the earth in one big fuck you.

so I say we get ahead of the game, continue to burn what we can, while directing technologies to be as efficient and clean burning as possible.
I'm not too worried about that. There are plenty of ways to kill each other and/or the planet, adding another to the list is like adding another straw to the bale.

Surface level CO2 impact is a fairly well established canard.
Migration to the upper atmosphere is not scientifically supported.
Perhaps Jet Air traffic could be examined right after Global warming is established as fact.
Certainly there are more pressing stewardship issues which are less politically charged.

Even if everyone drove a hybrid, they would have to quit driving them to the airport if they wished to have a significant impact on CO2 emissions.
How about hydrogen powered dirigibles? :like:

The only Toyota truck that's worth anything to me are the ones powered by the 22RE engine. Beyond that, they're overhyped and overpriced.
I’ve done enough head gaskets on timing chains on Enough of those to say other wise, I will never own another Toyota again, gf has a 4 runner and I can’t even sit straight in it without my head touching the ceiling.

The truck I run up and down the road everyday averages 5.5-6 mpg so that really wasn’t a concern of mine,

My 1987 Yoda never had any major engine issues. Just standard maintenance items.

I loved the Gen2 Tacoma. That 4.0 was no race engine, but it had plenty of grunt. I used to take it up in the mountains for hours just to trail drive. Had a 1993 22RE Toyota for my first vehicle. Reliable little shit, but passing speed on the highway was a lost cause.

a live version of this forum, sitting around a campfire, would have a whole different ambiance and probably alot more laughs, even with the most controversial topics. 🍻
Gotta admit though, a lot of beer would have been snorted out noses over the Pinto/Prius line :sunglasses:
