I only use 100% electric for heating and hopefully will have a heat

pump for the next heating season...Looking at CO2 heat pumps...

WE also have 3 electric cars and will add a 4th , then we need to sell

the 2019 Tesla 3....

Probably would do solar because getting too old...

Batteries may be in the future for our onsite energy storage...

Ju Keep the Tesla and use it for power storage.

If you use 100% electric to heat your home, what brought you to the coal forum?

Used coal heat for over 53 years... Since 1970...Changed due to health..

First year without coal in over 50 years...

Posted here many times with my experience with Bituminous coal...

Been trying to sell my Bit boiler... First year with storage electric heat...

Just bought a air storage furnace for my Basement Unit...All at off peak...

We decided to Keep the Bolt EV 60 Kwhr battery for storage and local use...

Got a 2500w inverter for AC usage... Emergency Power...

We are going to buy another Tesla Y and transfer the full self driving to it...

Would it be wiser and better for the suffering planet for you to give up all of your vehicles and simply have an Autonomous EV pick you up and take you where you want to go? What is the value in every person having multiple automobiles that sit at their homes? Think of the resources saved. Furthermore if you have a service that picks you up and drops you off, they could pick up others on the way to where you are going. Then once you arrive instead of your vehicle sitting in a parking lot it is doing what vehicles were intended to do, they are transporting people.

Get on Board with the way of the future Barney. Give up your car!

What was the adverse health issue from burning coal? Was it indoor pollution? Lack of humidity?

Yeah, BB has a "selective" memory. :lol:

We can add, the length of the Hudson River contaminated from Hudson Falls to NYC from GE dumping over 1 million pounds of PCB's that are used in grid high voltage transformers.

Years after the "cleanup" there are still warnings about eating fish caught in the Hudson.

That is because the cleanup was a complete and total farce. Most of the PCB's they chased after had been trapped behind a dam that the DEC allowed and actually desired be removed without checking was was contained in the sediment behind the dam. With the dam removal the sediment and trapped PCB's were released and then considered a pollutant. Before the cleanup dredging started most the PCBs had again been trapped in the sediment at the bottom of the river. So then the DEC/EPA decided that stirring up millions of tons of sediment to try and recover a few tons of a specific contaminate was a great idea. It was a great idea to brainwash people and waste a huge amount of money and resources to stir up a contamination that had been naturally contained. As far as the fish being consumable prior to the dredging the fish even including the bottom feeders such as the Bullheads were much safer to eat then as they are even now, it will be several more years before the fisheries will be in the shape they were prior to the dredging.
And then the BIG ELEPHANT in the room, the dredging was stopped before reaching the Troy dam. The largest restriction and sediment retention area on the river which has to be contaminated with a multitude of pollutants and heavies. And then the amazing fact that NO PCBs are entrapped in any low and slow flowing areas of the river downstream of the Troy dam.
Or the minor fact that navigational dredging can not be done because of the contaminates/pollutants that will be stirred up and released.

So lets just get more heavy metal contaminates in our systems from EVs and their manufacture and maintenance. Let's not worry about that or their complete uselessness in cold climate heavy load conditions.
So lets let the government of bureaucratic idiots shove these statistical lies down our gullible throats.

Sounds like a very expensive way to save money on gasoline and grid-supplied electric. :baby:

Just want to live out my last days...
