    When electric vehicles become popular, even the standard, where will the power come from when people plug them in at night to recharge?

    Environmentalists love EVs.  Have they given any thought to where the power will come from at night to recharge those electric vehicles?  Solar perhaps?  Last I checked, the sun doesn't shine at night.

    Hydroelectric?  A good idea, but the environmentalists won't allow building any more of those.  Too harmful to the fishies.

    What practical source of power can we use at night?  Coal? Oil? Natural Gas? Nuclear?  Which will the environmentalists allow?

    Name an animal species you would like eliminated from earth?

    Favourite answer:

    Hyenas. As a kid, I watched a documentary that showed a cackle of hyenas stalking a baby hippo. The mother charged at them and they'd run off - to only return and start again. It showed them attacking the baby and ripping at it's little ears. And the mother charged again. This went on for 24 hours and the mother was getting exhausted. Finally, they killed the baby. I absolutely loathe and detest the hyena. Cowards that can only attack if there is a group (cackle) of them. And then they don't kill like a lion/tiger does - straight for the jugular and death comes quickly. They torture their prey to death. Vile, vile evil animals.

    How are some people able to walk outside bare footed every where they go?

    Favourite answer:

    Because they are use to doing just that, and the souls of their feet become hard. Anyone can do that, but it does take time to get the souls of the foot hard enough to do it on any type of surface.

    How is 1.65million COVID deaths (so far) within one year not obvious enough for everyone to stay away from each other until the virus goes?

    Favourite answer:

    The point I'd make is that we have dealt with viral outbreaks numerous times - Zika in South America, measles across the world, various tropical viruses, Ebola in Africa and so on. We know pretty much exactly how to deal with these - introduce a lockdown to stop the spread, and quickly isolate the cases that do appear with contact tracing and mobile teams of public health doctors and nurses who work to suppress local clusters.

    Countries that did that quickly, like New Zealand, managed to get Covid under control. Countries that were slow to respond didn't. Compare, for example, the shape of the cases graphs on google for New Zealand and the US. Of course, these are very different nations but these graph shapes show the difference between doing what we've known for decades works, and not doing that.

    So to answer your question ... if nations had done things properly we would have had short term pain for longer term gains and kept the economy ticking over. But because nations botched it, most are now constantly teetering between controlling the spread or not. This has dragged on the closures, kept people in on again off again lockdowns, opened and closed and opened and closed business which can't plan or prepare for these cycles, and created more economic pain than just doing it properly in the first place.
