The lightest new gen Prius is a hair under 3,100 lbs. The Tesla 3 is 3,900 to 4,100 lbs. So basically a thousand pounds difference in this case.

Two Teslas burn in San Francisco, weeks after autonomous vehicle arson
Feb. 27, 2024
A pair of Teslas caught fire and were destroyed in San Francisco over the weekend just weeks after a self-driving electric vehicle was torched in a nearby neighborhood, according to authorities.
Over a 30-minute period early Saturday morning, the San Francisco Fire Department responded to two separate vehicle fires in close proximity, on Bonifacio Street near Mabini Street and Shipley Street between 4th and 5th streets, officials said.
The department extinguished the fires and began investigating at least one as a suspected arson.
Video obtained by CBS News Bay Area showed the origins of the second fire: a person setting the white Tesla Model Y ablaze around 12:45 a.m. The unidentified person ignited a fire in one of the wheel wells, causing the entire vehicle to go up in flames within minutes, the video shows.

If you just wait they will probably catch fire on their own.
Seriously, Stop being dick heads and burning cars.

Maybe not all just most, Nothing is too absurd for the Government to spend out tax money on.
Life on Earth ends if all of the carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere. No one is suggesting this be done.

Like I said, anthropogenic CO2:

From the reference:
"Paired with simultaneous deployment of mitigation measures and other carbon management practices, CDR is a tool to address emissions from the hardest to decarbonize sectors—like agriculture and transportation—and to eventually remove legacy CO2 emissions from the atmosphere."

Life also doesn't exist if there is not enough CO2 in the atmosphere. Here's an idea, let's let the Govenment handle it.
