It’s not easy being green, math is hard, and so on.
Here are three examples of math not working out so well for hippies, because you’re worth it.
Britain’s Daily Telegraph looks at the price of ‘green’ cars, by which I assume they mean eco-friendly and not shades of teal:
The ‘green’ model cost £4,760 more that the budget model. To benefit from the difference in fuel efficiency, you would have to drive 198,690 miles – the equivalent of driving round the world eight times.
Next we have the inconvenient solar panels at Nellis AFB, which I pointed out in last weeks round-up:
President Obama traveled to Nellis AFB to celebrate their use of solar power. Now for the inconvenient truth; the 72,000 solar panels cost $100 million and saves the Air Force $1.2 million annually. So it’ll pay for itself in about 83 years. What a shame the useful life of a solar panel is only 20 years.
Third we have a man that proved ineffective to the point of incompetence on Darfur is trying to warn about the dangers of a hoax, when the real evil is green:
Greens aren’t good at math, yet we are supposed to believe they know the future of the planet from computer models. Color me unconvinced.
