Here’s a take from The New Yorker that’s so piping hot that it might manage to single-handedly worsen global warming:
Combustion engines have helped create a climate crisis. The quest for oil has led our soldiers into war. And the road has become a setting for violent, systemic racism. Are cars worth it? https://t.co/K5XX5TAlmA

Wow, who knew that your car was responsible for all that?

Definitely wear oven mitts when handling that one!
we should return to the days of sailing ships and horses because there were never any wars then. https://t.co/JCCUVaYKOp

You can’t make this stuff up.
We produce more oil than any other nation on the planet. We are not questing it. We are shipping it to the rest of the world because cars are racist or something

This is such a load of 💩, I hardly know where to begin.
In short, the vast majority of us would never have traveled more than 50 miles from the place we were born and a lot of the folks you know would have died before adulthood.
So in short, it was very worth it 🙄 https://t.co/BuCWBmi168

Cars weren't a mistake. The New Yorker was though.

There has been less wars, less racism, less poverty, in the world since the combustible engine
