Rolling Coal, I'm sure we can all agree, is some really stupid shit.

2. Is there a correlation between "rolling coal" and Christian conservatives?

These "freedom" lovers defile the earth and air that their god provides. I suppose their Jesus drove diesel's before the Pollution Control Agency.

10. A lot of people who I know who claim to be Christian are pretty insufferable.

And a lot of them believe all the conspiracy theories that pop up on Facebook and other social media feeds. And after browsing r/HermanCainAwards the past couple of months, it almost seems like the propaganda is targeted directly at them, and they are the ones most likely to believe / share the memes.

4. Are you comparing rolling coal or cruise ship patronage to EV charging?

7. No, the poster means these same assholes park in EV charging stations

At rest areas, gas stations, etc. I've reported them before, but they should be Barnacled and charged a 2K fine or something.

They think they are soooo funny parking their guzzlers in EV charging spaces.

9. I love cruises

Theyíre the only vacations I take. Iíve been on two this year already. Technology is catching up to pollution. The line I cruise has newer ships are less polluting (Princess ships) and the next class of their fleet the Sphere class will by LNG powered.

As for rolling coal I agree. Itís assault basically.

11. My wife and I enjoying cruising, too. At least, we did before COVID-19.

They tend to be condemned as hopelessly middle-brow entertainment and relaxation, not to mention hugely polluting. But we both know that most modern cruise ships take elaborate care to minimize ocean pollution in the course of their voyages. One effort a lot of cruise lines are making is to develop much more quiet engines in order to reduce noise-stress on marine wildlife like whales and dolphins.

A lot of environmentally conscious people take cruise vacations, and the cruise lines are trying to keep them as paying customers by reducing their pollution footprints.
