A close look at the campaign to reject electric cars chargeable today with zero emission renewable energy sources. The inconvenience of charging and the marginal current emission cost of depending on soon to be history fossil fuel power stations has been a major weapon used to misinform others and present biofuel promotion campaigns which are largely sponsored by the Oil companies.
As electric charging and battery tech becomes more convenient, we find useless idiots are increasingly pushing a new angle - the carbon negative effects of extracting energy from biofuels. So apparently we should be happy to drive around in cars emitting 60-80% of oils carbon emission because while we are releasing this harmful emission we are ALSO magically removing more than we are releasing
Any one with a brain would wonder - why release carbon from our exhaust pipes when there is an alternative at hand with todays technology? Ah because of human rights abuses in China where these rare Earths materials are mined, never mind that our laptops and mobile phone batteries use the same elements
So instead of waste time with the oil industries useless idiots lets collect and post some info here that has had no hugely funded marketing campaign behind it. Lets see how absurd we can make the single vote above for biofuels over available electric. Basically biofuels come with huge disadvantages and damage to our fragile world and societies that the useless idiots ignore when explaining that we can continue to drive ICE cars and emit almost as much as before but biofuels solve the emission after we emitted it. Lets do the dirty and then clean i up after instead of lets be a little inconvenienced now and breath better and have a slim chance of providing a world for our kids
(before they turn up to complain about being forced to read lengthy posts or moan about 'circular debates - to the usual b!tching moaner - STFU already)
lets start with this to set the tone
Real lives affected by biofuels
The global land grab is forcing violent evictions around the world, robbing land and livelihoods from some of the poorest communities, leaving them unable to feed their families.
Mario Cucul Cu, 29 and his wife Candelaria Choc Pau, 26 with their children in the house they rent in the K'Quinich community.Candelaria Choc Pau, 26 struggles to feed her children since being evicted from land their family had farmed for generations
In the Polochic Valley, Northern Guatemala, indigenous communities were violently evicted from land that has been in their families for generations to make way for plantations growing sugar that could be turned into biofuels to fuel European cars.

Biofuels were once touted as the miraculous answer to our energy shortages and fears around climate change. But mounting evidence has exposed this supposedly ‘green fuel’ as the ultimate red herring. Meeting global biofuel targets could force hundreds of millions more people into hunger by 2020.
Industrial biofuels present a false solution to climate change and divert attention from the real changes needed. They were introduced as a ‘renewable energy’ but are not living up to that promise. Far from tackling climate change, most biofuels emit just as many greenhouse gases as the fossil fuels they were designed to replace.
Ok so the useless idiots have now countered this by promising 'MAGICAL' Algae which will actually extract carbon while we drive and are apparently the only solution because we have crossed the TIPPING POINT where reducing carbon is not enough - we have to reduce it (get this) ONE CAR JOURNEY AT A TIME - the car journey means we buy oil mixed with algae bio diesel, but the good part is we are now extracting carbon as we drive
When asked to prove this things get vague, and the shouting and ridiculing of those who 'dont understand the maths' starts, the useless idiots are basically teling us about a small experiment that worked in the lab, and extracted carbon while delivering energy BUT they forget to mention that it is completely unscaleable because (wait for it) there are yards of side effects and consequences we know about and a sh!t load more we will discover as we change things.
They tell us the carbon extracted can be easily and safely LOOKED away, just like that, without cost - magic. when pressed they will say, 'we can use it in construction, there are lots of uses for it'
So nature extracts carbon through trees and plants and feeds it through the natural ecosystem which is self balancing. We come along and grab those plants, release the carbon, then capture PART of it and store it away in a place better than nature intended (nature intended deep in the ground to become fossil fuel locked) - we gonna store it around us as walls and 'lots of other uses' and this will all be very dandy becos the useless idiots say so, and they have predicted and researched everything? lol
Sound familiar?? - YUP thats exactly what happened with the disastrous first wave of bio fuels that are now discredited because they compete with food growing, push up prices etc etc even though the same useless idiots were equally convincing before (see above)
Now the big problem is that for every useless idiot that spews this stuff on a forum, most of the members will see through it and stay silent or ridicule it. However there will always be one who is so dumb and thick that they blindly agree, as they always agree and empathise with the countersocial losers who stand out. And so another level of useless idiot is created, and this level is just as dangerous and ignorant as the first one because by definition it will have an even thicker skin and so will be able to carry the useless idiot manifesto into other areas, like schools or places of worship etc etc
When you have a chain reaction of useless idiots who buy into moronic stuff and will defend them to the last people start thinking they might have a point and so they end up adding their voice to harm their own interests. Lets watch the process - the second level of useless idiot will turn up soon to instinctively side with the first level by complaining about this post, and they wont have read it at all because I can write anything here and they wont know lol
Final quote for today is to look at how the next generation biononsense is already manifesting behind the expensive campaign and useless idiots
See what action aid say about the magical algae and compare it to the snake oil claims and excitement of the useless idiots
Whereas first-generation biofuels (industrial biofuels) use conventional technology and compete with land and crops for food, advanced or second generation biofuels are made using new technological processes and often non-food crops.
These include biofuels from forestry and agricultural wastes, such as stalks from wheat and maize or wood waste. Third-generation biofuels include those made from algae.
ActionAid welcomes any attempt to reduce greenhouse gases and the use of truly waste products. However the sustainability of advanced biofuels is far from guaranteed and member states, including the UK, must put in place sufficient policies and safeguards – such as robust, binding social sustainability criteria - before we embrace this technology.
ActionAid is concerned that creating a market for biofuels from organic waste material, such as straw or wood waste, through setting new targets for advanced biofuels, could inadvertently lead to straw and wood being actually produced primarily for ‘waste’ if the price they fetch as biofuels is higher than for conventional uses. In addition, many waste materials have well established uses that would need to be met if these materials are diverted into biofuels production.
I urge you all to have a look at this site, especially the UK dwellers
