Hereís another one:

https://apple.news/A9TmhQa0VQBmSSAS5yedrxg

Itís virtually impossible to mine enough minerals and ore to produce 2 billion electric cars. Add to that exploitation, theft etc. There is no landfill big enough to bury 2 billion used batteries without treading in dangerous waters.

Interesting read nonetheless.

I got to thinking. What would happen to classic ICE cars?!

Well, he says about double the cost right now of regular gas, who knows. I just like that there are folks out there who are trying to work on alternative rather than just saying if you keep your ICE you're evil.

"Land sparing lay at the core of the manifesto, with the aim of rewilding as much of the worldís surface as possible by concentrating human activities. Ultimately, they wrote, technology could ďdecoupleĒ economic growth from planetary systems, and the ďwiseĒ use of nuclear power, genetic modification and intensive agriculture would lead ďto a good, or even great AnthropoceneĒ.

Precision fermentation and nuclear power are emblematic of the kinds of technical fixes they call for. Precision fermentation could, they claim, allow for the entire worldís protein to be produced from an area the size of London"


Are we trying to avoid or invite extinctions

to the original question -

yes i want an EV so bad, one that suits that i can afford of course, of which currently there are none

went for a hoon around just now in the M340i and i stopped the car and gassed the pedal - full to the floor and the car just won't move until it gets past 3000rpm.

i am so annoyed

That's throttle and automatic transmission lag. The turbo 3.0 makes plenty of torque well below 3000k. You need to drive a car with actual turbo lag where it doesn't build appreciable boost till 2800-3000...It ain't like your M340.

I just donít understand why these hyper pro electric vehicle supporters just canít admit that this system of everyone owning an electric vehicle will only work if there are chargers everywhere one can park. Itís that or there will have to be a charging station everywhere and in the same amounts there are gas stations and youíll have to be able to charge your car in under five minutes. Otherwise Iím sticking by what Iíve always said, and that is forcing this on the public will only cause irreparable damage.

So the two choices are-
1. Charging stations everywhere there are gas stations and you can charge 100% in less than five minutes.
2. Charging stations everywhere a car can park.

Without one of those two options, electric vehicles are nothing more than novelty toys for the upper middle class to add to their existing ice fleet at home.

Gas stations are currently way overkill.
