  1. EV and more environmentally health future?

    Well this sounds familiar(thanks to a lost Californian, and thanks epa, now it sounds like I have to figure out how much a cow farts and report it, what's next a breathing tax?)...So, 1. Look North of Casselton ND. All what you will see is a sea of red lights. Wind farm. Look to the south. Wind farm. As one of the things ND is famous for we are using it and selling it to Canada and MN. 2. A lot of our coal doesn't stay in state. Iirc most goes to China, and what's left goes to our few coal plants, and plants in the midwest. 3. Garrison Dam. Built in the 50s and ever since then we have exported power. If the Missouri river quits well? it won't for quite a while, if it does then there probably be a large project to pipe water up here for irrigation and misc. Uses(drinking etc.) 4. Ozone doesn't "melt". As the local college said when the paper asked: co2 doesn't deplete the ozone layer, it just slowes it's regeneration. Cfcs hurt the ozone. Methane doesn't either. 5. Anytime global warming is argued, we have a cold winter. Fun. Plants are being developed and some have naturally evolved already to deal with the issues of no ozone(uv rays etc). 6. Cooling system for livestock? What is your idea of a farm in North America? A feedlot? If you mean water misters, no. That makes mud, which is worse. Our cows simply go into the shade(trees, other side of hills) during the day and at night/dawn/dusk go and graze and do whatever. 7. In one way plants die ing faster would be almost better as they would stress(higher protein=more money) and, from what I have seen, produce faster. All crops I grow have to die before harvest, except the crab apple, choke cherry and buffalo berry trees/shrubs, which are for personal consumption. 8. Find me a battery that stands up to our extremes, which have been close to the same ever since they have began recording them.(126f in the summer, -70f in the winter) 9. Clean coal actually does make sense and works. See current epa regulations. It basically has to be breathable anymore. All soot and other "bad" gasses have to be either captured or converted. See previous post on using co2 from ND in Canada to extract oil. That's the plan going forward for most of the state's coal plants. 10. An idea: exempt ag people from regulations and ban vehicles from everyone else. Or you know, get China to care about it. Both aren't happening as no one cares about the ag people and China is China and not changing.
  2. Nvidia wants to sell cards to gamers over miners

    Well why starve/kill the group that built you and will(probably) support you indefinitely?
  3. Hello,I am looking for a recommendation for a protective (mostly from falls) battery case. With my old phone(kyocera brigadier) I didn't have to worry about a case, so I don't know what's good, bad, or recommended. Why a battery case? My cell service is terrible. I would also prefer it to have or to fit in a holster. Also I haven't really heard/found a clear answer on screen protectors: should I get one and, of so, what one should I get?Thanks
  4. EV and more environmentally health future?

    *some. My equipment that has a cvt does have gears. I regret buying a cvt.
  5. Experiences with non-techies

    Qvc all in one "no cpu, no box" "you couldn't get 4k without it"(referring to intel's 7th gen) "intel's newest" (are they not on 8th gen?)
  6. EV and more environmentally health future?

    I didn't know they figured out how to make a replacement for the differential. technically all vehicles have gears. Well Coal-wise, in Beulah ND they are capturing all CO2 and using it to extract oil, then leaving it there(in the ground, where it is stuck there until some MAJOR earth movement. They have to study it to make sure the layer/reserve is sealed). Nuclear kinda screwed itself with Chernobyl. Not really idiocy when you see what happened. I wouldn't want that near me.
  7. Possible price fixing according to the chinese
  8. EV and more environmentally health future?

    Last I heard the hole(if that's what you're taliking about) fixed itself.
  9. EV and more environmentally health future?

    His prototype actually could get up to 85mph. I seen it running on I-94 when I was down there
  10. EV and more environmentally health future?

    No that's exactly what you're saying. "Let's KILL off an industry, a couple million animals, and the people who take care of them, because environment" what about their benefits, such as soil aeration, fertilizer that is spread, and the auto mowing and keeping the native grasses from being choked out by weeds?(I'm battling the USFS on the same grounds right now.) Remember when the who said we have to stop using antibiotics in animals or we are gonna die in 100 years? Beef dropped $30 and hasn't recoverd. The same thing when they said red meat is a "possible carcinogen" My state of North Dakota, at the time of the last survey, has over 300 years worth of oil left in the KNOWN layers and enough KNOWN coal deposits to last until 2500, at the current rate of increase per year. I really don't get why meat is unhealthy. I really don't. Then again I don't get why people want to screw us over. You have awoken the Canadian/Canada Jr.(North Dakota, as the Canadian government seems to care about us more than the us government) Farmer. Edited last post. To be clear my farm/ranch, for the most part, is in ND, but I farm land in MT, MAN and Manitoba and Saskatchewan. I may seem defensive here but it is my main source of income, and I like doing it, but because of the "wonderful US Government" in the 80s("let's try to starve russia, because they won't buy elsewhere. Will they?") Has forced me to expand into other business and industries, such as a PC shop(that is mostly mail order) and building equipment. I assume that if your job, if you like it, was put under the same stress as mine, you would defense it too. Current temp. At midnight central time: -40 with a 35mph wind. Pickup battery dead again. Just bought it too.
  11. EV and more environmentally health future?

    Agree, as long as its not like ethanol that ruins seals. "hey you want to go to the race tonight?" "yeah sure, I'll be you $10 that #12 sounds more like a vacuum cleaner than #89" "deal" there are quite a few races in the world with cars here where I live? nothing because the cops don't do much at -40f(just like electric cars) Methane. Not co2. I raise beef cows. Quit trying to make the ag world harder, We barely make it as it is. Just gotta love def and the government(or the def government). Isn't def mostly water? Also I see that our dumps won't take the jugs either, due to some toxin or something in them, so they get burnt. Real healthy. Electric cars. Essentially a fancy paperweight up here where we sit below 0f for 3 months and, as per usual, a blizzard will take large areas out of service for up to 2 months at times(electricity) how about this? I actually seen this demoed, looks promising. https://www.wday.com/news/4385567-local-invention-could-double-gas-mileage-your-vehicle Basically the engine runs a compressor, the tank gets up to capacity, fuel quits going to the engine, and it runs off of compressed air(that might have been another prototype) and you keep the acceleration and torque.
  12. Why do people hate Apple inc?

    I think of high end I think of Xeons/server grade, not i5s and i7s Except for the fact that there is no "apple enterprise" and I can guarantee you there are quite a few programs that don't have mac versions(like soildworks, an industry standard) or just run like crap on them(from experience"lets design on a mac, then render it" "why?!")
  13. Please don't do ads like this.

    I haven't watched him in a while and I can say he has really changed(seems more like an actor, you know unnatural, forced, (yes I know they are/want to be an 'Entertaiment' company, etc)) Thanks for them...
  14. Why do people hate Apple inc?

    Once again "value" is a matter of opinion. To some people macs don't fit into "high end"
  15. Why do people hate Apple inc?

    Gone are the days when people over engineered things to last for 40+ years, you know built to last.(want examples? ask) Also any manufacture that has tried to do that has ended badly-thus destroying the engine, I wouldn't as within 5 years I would need a new engine-that costs more than the vehicle itself.(also have examples) It depends-was the flaw or oversight on purpose or accident? Did the engineers do it or was it a bean counter?
