From what I've read, the hearing yesterday was eye-popping. I've heard a few clips, and read some "reviews", and it is all some amazing stuff. Unfortunately, I didn't watch it, so I won't be writing about it. Instead, I will be writing about a meme I saw that bothers me on several levels.
Essentially, this is what it said: "You are being told to lower your A/C usage to prevent overwhelming the grid while simultaneously being told to trade in your gas cars for electric vehicles".
This may make sense to someone who feels like replacing gas cars with electrics means "they" are "shoving it down our throats" (whatever that
means), but there is just so much wrong with this and and other memes where complex issues are simplified using flawed logic to make some sort of point. I am guessing the supposed point of this
meme is that those concerned with climate change are missing some important simple truths. The meme doesn't work - for several reasons. Let's break this down.
