it would make sense - hell, they are mandatory in a lot of European countries.

And cease the regulation of body armour while they are at it. It's like needing a licence to wear a helmet on a bicycle.

you talkin bout?

We were talking how we need to change our petrol habits concerning fuel, and it was posted earlier that Renewable energy is already the leading source of electricity in Canada. I was thinking we could expand on what we already do and bolster our dollar at the same time.

I don't think oil workers would be opposed to working on clean energy plants either.

Sorry I'm being confusing, I'm not an expert in Liberal or Conservative electricity or fuel statistics and am trying to learn and form my own opinion, which always subject to change.

Carry on, you guys can play with Zebra's memes again.

When is the last time you rode a steam train to get somewhere?

Your the one who referenced coal fired steam trains and the dawn of the combustion powered automobile grandpa. I've never even used leaded gasoline.

All bickering aside, how do we become prosperous on the large amount of alternative clean energy we do produce. Can we start selling it instead of giving it away? I'm sure that guy in the video who spawned this conversation wouldn't mind working at a dam or solar plant.

The whole point of examining history is so as to not repeat mistakes.

I agree, but we are ascending the proverbial mountain when it comes to energy demands and it takes more gas to drive up a hill than down it.

Hate to say it, but these are the same tired arguments that the coal fired steam train lobby trotted out when everyone started to want internal combustion engine cars…

1895 - 300 cars - 190 000 000 short tons of coal produced.

1918 - 2 000 000 cars - 678 000 000 short tons of coal produced.

The figures suggest the need for coal only increased as internal combustion engine cars were being sold to the market increasingly. Why wouldn't history repeat itself?

Why does it seem as though you think transitioning to alternative sources of power involves building the death star that beams hippy power to the country? We are not talking about a "project" here, and quite honestly the free market will do most of the work as power from other sources continues to drop.

We can't even supply clean drinking water to everyone who needs it and it literally falls out of the sky. Is there more information on this free market solution, because I'm interested. I love what they have done with computer software and apps for my phone.

Cuz no one in Canada makes their living off of alternative energy… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renewable_energy_in_Canada

And no one has ever built a vehicle that doesn't run off of fossil fuel yet - how are we going to build non-fossil fuel vehicles??

Hate to say it, but these are the same tired arguments that the coal fired steam train lobby trotted out when everyone started to want internal combustion engine cars…

You might have missed the 2.8 billion gallons of fuel used daily, and the fact it's a global problem. Our borders don't hermetically seal us from the rest of the world. I wish they did.

Guy makes valid points. We need petrochemical-derived products. What he doesn't address is that over 80% of all the world's oil production that goes up in smoke as fuel, never to be utilized again while producing greenhouse gases that are indisputably linked to climate change.

I've read we use 3,570,000,000 gallons of oil per day on the planet. So at 80%, 2 856 000 000 gallons go's up in smoke as fuel as you stated.

Now lets address what you said he failed to cover in the interview.

How do we develop a fuel source to replace the over 2.5 billion gallons of petro products that we use to sustain life as we know it on Planet Earth? To accomplish this momentous task I would think we would actually need to ramp up oil production, no?

The development of this new source of energy and the changes to the infrastructure are going to require massive amounts of energy to complete. Not to mention the time such a huge undertaking would require, people are still going to need to burn petro-fuel while the project is underway.

Another hurdle would be financing such a project, we rely on the oil patch not only for day to day living, but its our number 1 export. We shut that down, and our other top 5 exports will also go down with it.

Too me it feels like we have 20 minutes of air left. There is another tank of air, but its 25 minutes away. Everyone is screaming to stop using the air.

^ that guy was very well spoken. Expect more hypocrites to flock in here, call you names, belittle the Rebel and any contrary opinion to theirs. Cuz, Libtards won't let you have your own space in a Libtard bashing thread - that's their hypocritical way.

I would hope not, besides working in the oil and gas industry that man is a friend of a friend and his views I'm sure would nearly align 95% with the majority of people on this site. I only posted the video because he highlights the hypocritical nature of the "support popular cause group" as they jump from one issue to the next whilst participating wholly in the very function they wish to cease.

On the flip side, David Sukuki types will bring up very valid points on the issue as well. Unfortunately they are generally overlooked as we are busy grabbing the bolt cutters to unchain their dehydrated, babbling counterparts from things like cars and trees…. Also ironic.

As usual, we should strike a balance somewhere in the middle of the bickering, but we will probably miss the mark since the left arm weighs heavy these days.

Yup, one in the dp, other in the straight pipe, which just that now. So I could be catless. AirCare's goin out still right?

You will build boost way faster with a catless dp. You'll need a tune though, and a plug and play probably wont cut it.

That would be ideal. Mines 2.6 at the moment. But thats also not a huge priority, for now.

Blog post: ordered a 3" intake w/ cnc maf house and filter. I may have said earlier in this thread to stay away from SURE Motorsports but due to the holiday price ($96 USD off) and the fact I didnt want a metal intake, I went with them b/c really, they cant really mess this up… knocks on wood

Did mazda stick any cats/resonators in the downpipe like subaru did?

I found that a quicker ratio steering rack makes driving a lot more fun too. I took a power rack that is like 2.5 lock to lock and converted it to manual in my FC rx7, so good.
