    Current lowest gas price in Vermont - (gasbuddy.com) 1.57$ per US gallons - 0.59 CDN$ per liter.

    Current lowest gas price in Quebec - same source 0.69 CDN$ per liter. Only about 15% difference...
  3. The imperial gallon is made of four (40oz)...

    The imperial gallon is made of four (40oz) imperial quarts so it's fully logical. What is strange is using US quarts (32OZ) to measure an imperial gallon. Anyhow, this alone is an example as to...

    With the current exchange rate the difference is not that large anymore.

    Yep, sadly, we too can elect unqualified people to head our nation. Plenty of other examples around the world also.

    Science never said there would be no skiing by 2020. America is politically divided and this is a topic that is perfectly aligned with the political divide. There are uninformed idiots on each side...

    Let's play. I'm stuck at home and bored. How do you know this ? What's your background ? Where do you get your information from (ok don't answer this one, I know it comes from blogs) Can you...

    Good grief... You are completely ideologically driven on this topic.

    You should apply these skills to climate change. Sorry, could not resist.
  10. My point is not that should not have prepared. ...

    My point is not that should not have prepared. The point is that if the cost to get prepared is several billions of $ (half a billion just for ventilators) just in case something like this happens,...

    No country/state/province/city is going to stock half a billion $ worth of ventilators just in case. In addition, ventilators is just one of the many things which would be needed to prepare for a...

    This is off topic but carbon offset is an environmental tax, like the many others we have. Should if be in the COVID-19 relief bill ? Of course not. But the idea is not insane.

    1- true
    2- I'm surprised it's only twice
    3- This is false. Italy ranks very highly (and ahead of the US) on most health care systems rankings. Life expectancy testifies to that (not the only...

    I did not say it's worse. I said it might get there. Considering the number of cases, the growth and the lagging of tests, it very well might. Hopefully it won't, but you seem way too...

    New York might be worse than Italy the way things are going.

    As to POTUS, I have the feeling he can't himself predict what he's going to say.

    Key part is 'so far'.
