My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
It seems that battery pack replacement for Prius models is relatively rare. They are covered by a 100,000 mile or 8 year warranty. but just in case the worst happens here is what green cars not come has to offer: Should worst come to worst and your battery need replacement, there’s one final silver lining from Toyota, known as “core credit”.
This is a sum deducted from the new battery pack MSRP for returning the old battery to be recycled. That’s not only better for the environment than the battery being thrown away when it gets replaced, but in a car like the Prius, it reduces the cost of a new battery by around a third.
The only additional cost is that of labor, which varies between cars, and labor rates which vary depending on where you live.
California agricultural industry has shifted from growing annuals like tomatoes and leafy vegetables etc to grove trers like almonds and pistachios. Annuals use less water can produce fruit quicker. They’re much more labor intensive. But here is a staggering satistic it takes one gallon of water to make one almond, I’m going to repeat that it takes one gallon of water to grow one almond. So yes changing all lawns will help but at home our water usage comes from the beef we and fruit like almonds trees and we need to start thinking about what we are buying in the stores so that California farmers start shifting their crops to those that are more in line with the fact that we live in the desert. If we are not careful the desert will take over California and there will be no farmland in the very near future. AVB
