    Hey at least he was prepared!

    Yeah, I mean, because why would you want to burn dirty fossil fuel planet-wrecking gasoline in your car’s engine when you can save the planet by burning gasoline in a generator to charge your car’s batteries?

      I find it is so puzzling that these elec cars don’t have a wind mill or a pin mill thingy on car roof?
      Or those absolutely lovely solar panels (made in China only) in and can kill a bird ? with it so you can return home with dinner! ?

      • RAH says:

        Na, what they need is a hand/arm or foot/leg cranked generator. Having used them in the military to charge radio batteries let me assure you that even if your strong and excellent condition they will give you an outstanding work out.

      • Chris says:

        conservation of energy. A wind mill would create drag and thus negate any benefit. and solar… well, there just is not enough room on top of the roof to generate enough power. the nissan leaf put one up there, but it is so small, it could barely power the clock memory.
        Don’t you think plugging in a car to a coal power grid is clean enough? ha ha
        And I am confused how solar panels kill birds?

    Nothing new-

    their scientists only exist with taxpayers money,
    their AGW only with data tampering,
    their electricity need a huge backup in conventional power plants.

    As long as you always have someone else to backup your stupid phantasies
    everything is fine.

    (and i don’t want even to know how much energy is lost creating electricity with fuel instead of powering the car directly with fossil fuel.
    But burning down fire with gasoline is how their agenda is working-or not.

    Russian gas arrives in UK to keep Britons from freezing this winter

    ‘The UK was forced to turn to Russia due to shortages in gas supplies and a deep freeze that settled over the country at the time. Temperatures in central England fell to minus 13 degrees Celsius, which is nearly 15 degrees colder than the usual average December low.
    The UK suffered gas shortages after the shutdown of the North Sea’s most crucial fuel transport route. Ineos, a private company which owns a key refinery near Aberdeen, said it found a crack in a vital 42-year-old oil and gas pipeline. The firm said that it would take two weeks to fix it.’

    Maybe they should build more solar and wind.

    • Stewart Pid says:

      This is fake news …. the Grifftard sez they have solar and windmill electricity coming out their yin yang!!

    • Psalmon says:

      And we were all told the REST of the planet was HOT. Only the US was cold. That of course is BS. Britain has had airports closed, constant snow and extremely cold weather.

    • It doesn't add up... says:

      A story that has provoked all manner of dubious reporting. According to the FT, the Christophe de Margerie’s cargo was simply to be transshipped at Grain, for destination in the Far East – which would see it arrive perhaps early March. Apart from a highly suspicious day of no activity at Grain on Dec 27th, so far we can see a ship discharge on 25/26th, and another on the 30th (the Gaselys, with a cargo loaded at Sabine Pass, La. – vessel yet to depart according to ship tracking sites). No sign of any backloading, just reasonably normal offtake rates into the grid.

      Following the Gaselys discharge, the Grain storage was pretty much full.

    He he! Priceless!!

  6. Lance says:

    That is a classic!!

  7. Cam says:

    A good video from another site on where wind turbines go to die. Wyoming, at least, is doing it right. California…not so much.

  8. fhsiv says:

    Typical Greenie!
    In addition to probably being a typical eco-hypocrite, they don’t even have enough common sense to get their little rolling kitchen appliance out of the traveled way.

  9. gregole says:

    I, I, I’m at a loss for words…Bwahahahahahaha!

  10. Myron Mesecke says:

    I believe the generator runs on gasoline not diesel.
    But the photo is priceless.

  11. Kris Johanson says:

    Refining the gasoline, including transportation costs in and out: 50% efficiency
    Running the gasoline engine in the generator unit: 25% efficiency
    The gasoline engine turning a generator w/DC rectifier: maybe 95% efficiency
    Charging the chemical storage battery in the car: 95% efficiency
    Using the battery in the car: 80% efficiency
    The car’s drivetrain itself: 40% efficiency

    Saw this pic on Instapundit a few months back, did the math on the mileage per unit hydrocarbon.

    (Typ) 29 MJ/kg of coal, so 13.18 MJ/lbm = 3.6 kWh/pound
    Generous conversion efficiency of coal to electric ~45%.
    Typical loss from transmission through grid ~5%
    Generous 10% loss for charging inefficiency (typical)

    so of the 3.6 kWh of heat released, 1.4 kWh makes into the battery.

    At 3.3 mi/kWh gives 4.6 miles per pound of coal.
    Gas running that Honda generator

    EU2000i makes 4.75 kWh/gallon at full chat
    Mitsubishi iMiev (car in the photo) gets 3.3 miles per kWh, knock 10% for charging inefficiency.

    So that thing is getting 14.1 mpg charging via the generator.

    • Kris Johanson says:

      in other words about the same fuel consumption as my full size lifted American truck with belch-fire V-8 and off road tires

  13. Lasse says:

    Say no to gasoline go electric and go not too far!

  14. Justa Joe says:

    Gotta love that gasoline powered emission control-less small generator. Right now that little vehicle is pumping out more unburned hydrocarbons than a Hummer H2.

    • Chris says:

      hummer h2 is simply powered by a GM 6.0L engine. same one available in all of gm trucks and suv’s.

      • Justa Joe says:

        I just invoked the name Hummer H2 because it’s a libtard bogeyman.

        My point is that a GM 6.0L LS-series engine is run through an emission control system(s) and is no doubt cleaner with a gallon of gas than some small single cylinder OHV or worse yet flat head engine without any emission control system.

        • Chris says:

          I would also suspect the same… but even small engines are subjected to emissions testing when first assembled. They include vapor recovery systems, small cat converters, and ignition timing/ cam timing/duration that yields better emissions. Plus it’s a constant rpm engine that shouldn’t fluctuate much. And regular vehicle emissions are not regulated once the vehicle exceeds a certain percentage of throttle…. say 50% or so. (I cannot remember the actual percentage) But I can tell you for certain @ WOT the ECM does not invoke EGR, Fuel trims, cam overlap, timing, etc for emissions control any longer… It just makes as much power as the manufacturer allows.

          So I don’t think a blanket statement would work… I’d like to see the actual tests performed. Too many variables involved.

  15. Chris says:

    OK, I suspected this to be fake… and guess what? The pixelation around the text when the levels are changed shows up as a square text box. Implying….. PHOTOSHOP…. FAKE NEWS… Come on Tony… You’re better than this. It appears to be a big thing among EV owners who like their cars for commuting to get small generators for longer trips. It’s possibly the owner could care less about global warming, and further more possible this entire photo was staged to illustrate the method. I was unable to source the origins of the photo.

    • Justa Joe says:

      I’m not sure how this purported issue even if it were determined to be valid would take away from the post. The bumper sticker really isn’t that important.

      • Chris says:

        It is if your accusing the EV owner of being a hypocrite. When I research the topic of EV owners carrying generators, they are in fact not hypocritical at all. Like me, I drive a Plug in hybrid, but know global warming is a scam. I also recognize the environmental damage done by my battery and the ICE. I just have it because in commifornia we get carpool access with the car, cutting my commute from three hours to maybe one hour.

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      Chris, I appreciate your investigative rigor. Can you examine the picture below?

      I was told by some German visitors that Bernau near Berlin is a center of anti-fossil fuel resistance but I suspect that these people could just be walking their dog.

  16. AndyG55 says:

    “The pixelation around the text when the levels are changed shows up as a square text box.”

    No, its from a rectangular clear plastic sticker.

    Even the old 1988 graphics package I use doesn’t leave that sort of marking.

    • Chris says:

      Possible… But who is printing that large of a decal on a clear sticker?? Most likely such decal would be from cut acrylic letters. You are speculating to defend the integrity of the internet! The internet is so full of fakery, falsehoods, lies, deception that proving fakes is much more likely than not.

    • Chris says:

      Sorry, I meant cut vinyl decals. Hard to make decent comments while rushing between jobs at work.

  17. RAH says:

    If electricity is such a great power source for transportation then why no electric powered aircraft for commercial use? They keep promising them but they have NONE!

    promises, promises, promises but no results. Kind of like the UN.
