The Green Deal is a hoax. There is no such thing as 'Eco-Friendly'. The polar bears aren't dying unnaturally. The polar caps aren't melting away. Man is not causing the ozone to be depleted. Cow flatulence isn't causing greenhouse gases. The facts, which the left never advertises, maybe they just don't know like little Greta Thornburg, are this: It takes over 300 TONS of coal to make all the steel needed to build just ONE Wind Turbine tower. Let that sink in lefty. Coal is carbon, a fossil fuel, and an efficient source of energy. Electric cars? You're joking right? Batteries require carbon to make. Carbon is in the coal. Over time the coal gets compressed and forms oil. Oil is carbon based. Oil is used for many products not just gas for you car. When you go and buy your 'electric' car, you will need to charge the battery somehow. An electric charger and/or a gas powered generator requires a carbon based product like oil or coal to operate. Wood, coal, and oil are renewable sources of energy. The ideal solution would be for nuclear power but then the treehuggers don't want a bunch of little 'nuclear reactors' driving all around do they? Don't get me started on plastics now -saved it for another day. The worst thing created for man and the environment is plastic, despite what the socialist in 'The Graduate' was told, but nobody complains about it.
