A caring conservative

The lack of traffic during the COVID-19 pandemic gave me an opportunity to drive my 1927 Ford Roadster around town. I had to go through a drive-thru at a bank as the lobbies were closed and damn near died from the exhaust fumes. Vehicles with the AC on full blast with the windows rolled up were idling for up to 15 minutes spewing noxious exhaust fumes.

Where are all those climate change warriors when you really need them? Let’s shut down all the food drive-thrus along with bank drive-thrus and use the land for high-rise, affordable 400-square-foot studios and EV chargers. Conservatives care about climate change, too.
