Or private jets and yachts?


Private jets now account for 25% of flight traffic in the US.

If we turned off the internet we’d burn gas going to the library. And we’d all have 6 newspapers delivered per day.

25% of departures and landings, miles flown or fuel used?

Just gotta cut back on using webcams.  Those datacenters processing video suck up lots of power!

Oh man, on a per passenger basis the fuel usage must be absolutely massive within that 25% mode share.

25% of movements, right?

On a per passenger basis it’s high.

But most persons move on bigger planes.

Let’s not consider it a sin to burn fuel, as long as we offset the effects.

A Citation uses less than 200 gallons per hour. A 737 uses about 750.

My beef is more-so with the ultra rich ketchup makers flying private jets all over the place, lecturing the rest of us.

The ketchup heir (or husband of the heir) will tell us the private jets SAVE the taxpayer money because of all the extra work he gets done when not in transit by conventional airline.

Yes, of course, because the work he does is so important. Whatever would the world do without him jet setting around to tell us how to live our lives.

My builder friend is looking at the lighting, he was saying yesterday it is $250 to fill up his F150 crew 4x4....that is crazy! 7 years of driving a Tesla I am totally disconnected.

 We block 178/hr in cruise for the c560..


Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?

A citation will accommodate 6-10 passengers. A 737 will seat 150 to over 200.

It would really suck if you bought a Tesla thinking that you were going to save money vs gas!

Harsimran Bansal, the Tesla owner got charged CA$24.20 for a 21-minute Supercharging session. He also said that this cost is comparable to filling up gas in an ICE car.

The market will figure it out.

I’m guessing the amount of owners without home charging is very small.

Home charging is great as long as you don't plan to drive more than 150-200 km away!
