I finished watching the primetime shows on CNN and took a bedtime snack. While chewing, I switched to “that other channel”, you know, the one beloved by Trumpists. There was Tucker Carlson raving about how USA should not try to clean up the environment because China pollutes way more. Besides that being irrelevant, he ignored that China was doing way more than USA to convert from fossil fuel to renewable energy. e.g. making and selling millions of electric vehicles annually and putting up more gigawatts of solar power by far. You can’t even afford to register a gas-guzzler in some parts of China because of the taxes. People are pressured to buy EVs and they love them because they cost less to drive and less to maintain. China registered over a million EVs last year. USA? About a third as many. China did produce nearly double the CO2 that USA did but China has four times as many people.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
