Imagine A Greener Zombie Apocalypse

By that title, I don't mean a zombie apocalypse in which the zombies skin appears greener or that the zombies will be spewing forth green gobs of gooey guts but one in the near future wherein we have become more politically correct regarding the environment. A near future by which time we have had an environmental revolution of sorts and all the screwball leftists who were dead set against fossil fuels (you know them - the global warming crowd, the manmade climate change crew, the freaks who want everything that works destroyed - those guys) have gotten all of the politicians to bow down and kiss their arses by outlawing the internal combustion engine and replacing any vehicle or machine that used them with ones that run on electrical battery power.

Now that I have gotten that out of the way, let me take you back to the  title of this piece and insist that you do just what it says. Not a sci-fi fan, find the zombie apocalypse a completely silly premise - okay then - you can imagine a greener hurricane evacuation and rescue response, a volcanic eruption evacuation, a tsunami evacuation, a nuclear power plant explosion evacuation, or even the outbreak of world war III with an invasion on U.S. soil and the resultant evacuation of the southern and or northern border areas. Pick one - heck pick Hurricane Irma. Just imagine it with electric cars and not one vehicle with an internal combustion engine. What do you see in your mind's eye, is it paradise or a nightmare?

The European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) apparently thinks it would be the latter - a nightmare. Read about it here.

A hat tip and my thanks to Mike G for the link.

All the best,
