At least the abominations that currently exist on the market are.

Yes.

And the fact never mentioned is that they plug into coal fired powerplants every night. Doh!

EXACTLY. Finally we can agree on something. I think it's about 50% coal power here in Illinois. I'd have to look that up again.

That's not even mentioning how caustic battery production is to the environment.

That is my main complaint of EV's and hybrids

It's still a plug in vehicle and has a price tag of way faster bikes. It's fucking dumb.

but it gets around the painful parts of EV mileage sapping. the best bike is not the fastest or fastest per dollar either. neat tech and EV is good for bikes and i expect to see this area grow in the future.

But you can get a bike that'll go faster, longer and get 50mpg for cheaper. They should have made this a commuter and less of a sport bike then because in the sport bike world very few are going to spend $11-13k on a piece of shit that goes 88mph :bowrofl:

Just seems silly to build THAT as an ev. If it was a dirt bike or quad I'd think it would be pretty awesome as those stats would work perfectly offroad.

There is an EV motorcycle racing league out there but they're home built machines, not street legal commuters.

You can still fit everyone in the world into Texas with around 700 sq ft per person.

LOL at this.

Space has nothing to do with it. You can have all the space in the world, but with no resources, it won't make any difference.

1/3 of the planet right now is malnourished. 1/10 kids in this country go to bed hungry every night, and we are just about the most well off nation in the world.

Years ago I agreed with Michael Crichton's opinion of human intervention not having an affect on global warming. I suggest reading his book State of Fear


Awesome

Humans are scumbags, they are greedy, lazy & don't give a damn about doing the right thing!!!!
Not sure of what kind or how much damage they are doing to the planet,
but you can't just dump crap in our air, land or water without some kind of circumstances.
Mother nature is a very very powerful force, and can correct some pretty nasty issues we cause,
but she might not be able to handle the destruction POS humans are piling on her every second non stop.
