Wed Jul 11, 2018 6:46 pm

For anyone sitting on the fence looking to get an EV here in Ontario, you have missed the Incentive boat:

It's a sad day for us here in Ontario as we have taken a step backwards in EV adoption progress. Hoping our Feds will step in to do something.

Shame on Doug Ford and his conservatives :(

We are so screwed, wish my kids didn't have to inherit the mess we've made as they will feel the brunt of these types of idiotic decisions. Meanwhile, big oil continues to enjoy trillions of dollars in subsidies that make alternative energies seem so much more expense, not to mention the costs to the environment and to people's health that big oil never has to answer for.

There still seems to be little political appetite for real action on climate change, it's becoming so hard to have any optimism about humanity ever getting CO2 and methane emissions under control to prevent >2 degrees C warming. Realistically, 4 degrees or more of global warming seems inevitable by the end of the century, which is going to accelerate Antarctic ice sheets melting and raise ocean levels dramatically. The tipping point is already past, we can't stop this runaway train anymore. When hypoxia spreads throughout the world's oceans and lakes, we're doubly screwed.

Climate change is going to be at the root of the next world war as drought, famine, loss of arable land, and dying oceans drive people to desperate measures just to survive. Things are going to get very ugly before the end of this century, the next one even worse. So sad.
