Toyota hybrid electric car versus a regular petrol car; Is it worth buying?

Let’s take similar Toyota hybrid electric and petrol Toyota Yaris models for example, both 5 seats, around 10 sec to 100km/h performance.
The Electric Prius C uses at least 3.9L per 100km. The Petrol Yaris Hatch uses around 5.7L per 100Km. The average drive away prices in Australia are $18.500AUD for the petrol car versus $28000AUD for the hybrid electric.
If I drive an average whooping 30,000 km per year I’ll use 1,170L in the electric Prius and 1,710L in the regular petrol Toyota. The Prius will bring me a savings of 540L in petrol. With the Australian price of petrol averaging 1.50$ per liter I will save only $810 per year. I’d have to drive the Prius for at least 11 years just to make the electric hybrid a worthwhile buy! Even when comparing the hybrid Toyota to a powerful, petrol thirsty and expensive hatch like the Honda Civic VTi-S (8L/100km — 30MPG, 104kW, 6.5 sec to 100km/h, $23000AUD drive away) I’d have to drive at least 3 years to break even on the purchase price difference of $5,000AUD. In reality, most people drive less than 30,000 km per year.
And that is not taking into account the extra expenses in maintenance of the electric system, like on batteries and the electric motor.
Maybe you just like showing off that you are saving the environment. But those obvious savings come at an unobvious price for Mother Nature. The problem is that you don’t see the other ends of your consumption chain. Because the global economy and currencies are hardwired to energy resources like oil and coal, every dollar you spend is actually paid by nature! So when you buy expensive electric cars you actually consume much more natural resources than you would buying a regular car. Therefore, in order to produce less carbon dioxide and reduce your ecological footprint, you simply have to earn and buy less!


Humans on Earth today behave like 4 year-olds

Humans on Earth today behave like 4–year-old with a hundred-dollar bill to spend. A child would waste all the money on chocolate or ice cream. He would eat sweets until he got sick. We, too, carelessly waste the Earth’s natural resources in an attempt to satisfy our greed and lust. We keep on consuming shit until we get fat and sick. Then we buy other shit to try and balance it out.

So far, the human race is in a cycle of stuffing our guts to death! Why? Because we can, and we’re proud of it!!

Parents would teach a girl to behave. Parents would explain the consequences of bad behaviour. The human race does not have any parents to look after them, no matter how hard we try to believe in God, Aliens or other imaginary friends. We will do whatever we like until we run out of air and burn our arses on the global warming fry pan.

People do not like to admit the simple reason why we are on this Earth.

Life appeared on the border between the hot sun and cold space. The only reason we are here is to dissipate as much energy as we can. We are like a tornado born on the border between high and low temperatures.

Our arrogance and logic came from millions of years of monkey experience. The reasoning initially developed was to grab a banana on a tree or see the consequences of confrontation with powerful enemies. Our logic is not designed to see beyond the boundaries of our own experience.

The only reason why we are better than other animals is because we can predict the consequences of our actions and change our environment according those predictions. Logic can help to adapt to the environment faster than any other animal. Thus, we dissipate energy much quicker than anything alive on Earth. Yes. Changing the environment and increasing entropy (=disorder, chaos) is our goal. Our motivations and goals are directed by entropy. The more we consume, the more we are increasing entropy – and the more successful we seem to ourselves. Entropy laws control our motivations. Our feelings are only a parameter of a physical-chemical reaction and balance in favour of these laws.

Nature tricks us. Its laws do not consider satisfying our feelings! Our deep motivations and understanding of right and wrong have directed us towards increasing entropy – not actually to satisfy the feelings themselves. Our positive feelings are just a side effect. Positive feelings are only indicators to a mountain physical-chemical reactions of life in order to continue the process of self destruction forever. It doesn’t have much to do with the world around us; nor does money, success, etc.

Positive emotions are only there to sustain the chemical reaction that is life. That way, we can be active and live longer to process more and spend more energy. The best of us not only dissipate the maximum energy in our lifetime but also motivate others and use technology to dissipate a million times more energy than is needed for survival. The technocratic environment we have created is doing our job (to waste energy) better than we are. A feeling of wasting energy is bloody good. For example: riding a powerful car is a waste of bioorganic masses grown for billions of years.

We deserve to fry on the frying pan created by our short-sighted greed – global warming. That was the only purpose of our existence.
