So. For all of the folks her, that have friends and family watching their "paychecks" go down by 10% this year, pedojoe is going to make them feel better by the automakers cutting high paying, great benefit jobs for that awesome Green Deal" that the dims are drooling over. The problem is (as the right is trying to tell them) you need a transition phase so the country doesn't lose everything to China. Oh. Wait. That IS the plan. Sorry, I forgot that the more pain American workers go through making China rich, the better off the Marxists in the LWO get.

"Ford Plans Up to 8,000 Job Cuts to Help Fund EV Investment"
"Reductions seen coming from unit producing gas-fueled models
CEO has said Ford profit hampered by having ‘too many people’"

"Ford Motor Co. is preparing to cut as many as 8,000 jobs in the coming weeks as the automaker tries to boost profits to fund its push into the electric-vehicle market, according to people familiar with the plan.

The eliminations will come in the newly created Ford Blue unit responsible for producing internal combustion engine vehicles, as well as other salaried operations throughout the company, said the people, who asked not to be identified revealing internal discussions. The plan has not yet been finalized and details could still change.

The move would mark a significant step in Chief Executive Officer Jim Farley’s plan to cut $3 billion of costs by 2026. He has said he wants to transform Ford Blue into “the profit and cash engine for the entire enterprise.” In March, Farley radically restructured Ford, cleaving its carmaking in two by creating the “Model e” unit to scale up EV offerings and “Ford Blue” to focus on traditional gas burners like the Bronco sport-utility vehicle."

    Well, ya know, climate change has already doomed civilization, so it really doesn't make much difference if it happens a little sooner.

    Living in Florida, though, makes you extra vulnerable when that humongous ice shelf in Antarctica goes.

    And the issue is that I don't believe there is absolutely no transition from petrol engines. THAT's been my statement all along. YOU want to starve people ant murder them through zero heating oil in the northern tier. You don't have an idea what's that like.

    AND I believe in keeping the USA in to jobs. Because if I die, it's part of a bigger picture. But you want everyone to die like you will. Poor, without being serviced by the government. and all the living in victimhood you can.

    I've read quite a bit about it. There's real reason for concern.

    You're free to believe nutty things about me. Actually I love it when you do that. I always get a good chuckle out of it. Really.

    But actually I was just bringing attention to the Catch-22. Sometimes we discount the danger of things we support because the bad effects don't happen immediately.

    There have been all kinds of poisons that corporations have marketed that seem like good ideas, not to mention highly profitable ideas, only to find out decades later that they gave thousands of people cancer. That's just one example.

    In a truly civilized society, people who lost their jobs for the common good many years in the future would be fully compensated and retrained to work other jobs. But we don't live in a need-based system; we live in a profits-based system, which is the primary reason why civilization is doomed.

    I don't have the answers. We're too far down the road to self destruction. That's why I've resolved to eek out as much happiness I can for whatever time I have left in this life.

    Your "truly civilized society" is nonexistent. You are living under the illusion of the Liberal World Order that believes that we can make the world "perfect." That was one of the main Marxist/ Leninist theories. The "Sorry, some have to die in order to help the many." The thoughts are almost word for word out of the LWO handbook.

    I think that now, we've passed the third? or fourth? doomsday the climate changers predicted. I'm NOT saying that we shouldn't care about the climate, but it's not part of the immediate gratification you want. This is one of the big differences between liberals and conservatives. I still give a shit about people.

    We have cut down on our CO2. We were actually doing well in this regard under Trump (gasp!). Our LPG is one of the cleanest fuels we have, the oil WE take out is one of the cleanest to retrieve and the cleanest burning. But nooooooooo, we need to use the high sulfur oil from other parts of the world that are much dirtier to process, and to use. So as you bitch about not having health insurance, remember you are the one creating that dynamic, which is more than a little bit kharmic.

    "Marxism" - LOL! As if the Marxists are in charge of world affairs.

    Actually I don't blame anyone for our civilization's imminent demise. It was always baked into the cake.
