We are not going to buy our way out of our (self-inflicted) climate problems though technology.

I guess this ties into the slavery thread, as well.
Don't rely on those electric cars making everything okay!

And is that an answer to the situations outlined in the article? Oh, it makes me feel ill so I'll ignore it?

You posted about slavery. What is it that makes it shocking in the UK but not in the Congo?

I didn't ignore it. I provided evidence of climate change being tackled on a much more profound/wider level i.e. 10 countries going over to alternative energy so, since it's not obvious to you, that addresses not having to rely on electric cars.

The Congo slavery situation seems to be about the issue of being married into slavery i.e. not the same thing at all or on the same scale as what has just been uncovered here in UK.

Okay, I'm obviously being stupid again. I don't follow this. Energy has to come from somewhere - where can it come from that does not either damage the environment or human rights or both? And, if not electric cars, then what?

I'm not talking about electric cars but giving you the bigger picture of what is happening globally re. alternative energy.

Did you look at the link I gave in my post # 2? (It's a slide i.e. you click on the right arrow of the picture to go to the next one). The info comes from Eurostat and it shows (what you already know, so I am surprised you are asking where the energy comes from) countries increasingly using more wind power, huge quantities of solar panels and hydropower.

This conversation is getting silly. I asked for ways of generating power that are not destructive. I've already posted on the destructive aspects of solar panels. I can do so for wind and hydro if you like.
Also, I don't follow why any of this alleviates the need to rely on electric cars - which is what you said.

There is no miracle solution is there? We have to deal with the best of what we have i.e. be realistic - not idealistic.
