A lady told me government subsidies keep solar, wind and Tesla in business. Her husband is in the oil business. Oil is their source of income. They scoff, they laugh at global warming. They have their God on their side - scripture about God not allowing the seasons to change again after Noah and the flood. And now they won with Trump, a global warming denier.
These people are legion around here. They are the norm.
I drive a Tesla. Why, they wonder? They wrinkle their faces. I tell them the car gets 100 MPGe around town, 0-60 MPH under 3 seconds, 250 mile range. They shake their heads.
I want a concise response to give these people about subsidies and green energy and EVs.
Can we all formulate one?
Maybe any explaining does not work. I've offered rides - the scoffers just scoff. No. Oil is king.
