    Lab grown meat is made differently than what feels comfortable and familiar to me, therefore continue raising animals for slaughter! Who cares if it’s cruel and a massive contributor to capitalist made climate change?

    Charging a car takes longer than pumping gas, therefore keep using gas! Who cares if it’s destroying our ONLY habitat?

    Reckless growth/metastasis for its own sake makes more profit for the right people. We need more wage slaves! Lets force the peasants to have more babies to drive up short term private profit! Who cares if the planet can’t support such a reckless species in these numbers and we’re sabotaging the medium-long term survival of our species(and countless others at our mercy we don’t give shit one about)?

    Humanity is determined to destroy itself. Just smart enough to develop technologies capable of threatening our sole, shared, COMMUNal habitat we all rely on for every breath, still too bone-dead stupid to seriously consider using them responsibly with temperance.

      FYI for those who don’t know: you can charge your EV car overnight off a standard 120V (in America) power plug from your house. And it’s enough for the vast majority of daily commutes. Multi-hour each way commutes may need to upgrade to higher power plugs if they can, and road trips may need to utilize rapid chargers en route. But otherwise 99% of people who can physically plug their car in nightly are good to go.

      The real hurdle is getting rental places and other lots/street parking to have available charging facilities. Urban environments is where EVs could really shine but so much of that parking is not currently conducive to charging.

        To be fair, in a nation that has been made very economically desperate due to the avarice of private shareholders, a cord by every parking space in a metro area would be shredded for scrap constantly, it would be the copper stripping problem on steroids due to accessability. Not the desperate thieve’s fault, but it would still be a major problem.

        A universal living wage and UBI would mitigate the problem and so many others, but the owners won’t allow that.

        This exactly.

        There’s a reason we wandered around like any other beast of the natural world for about 180,000 years before we stumbled on the idea of agriculture, despite having the same brains we can’t stop crowing about.
