Re: Questions About Electric Cars
To my way of thinking a big part of the evolution to battery powered vehicles is the problems with liquid fuels. Even when there is a shortage of hydrocarbon fuels, there are still other sources of energy.
As with everything else, when demand goes up, there is a near term supply problem. If markets are left to adapt, there will be a greater supply which in the long term makes electricity more cost effective.
Unlike hydrocarbon supplies, there is not a free market. The Middle East is the biggest lecher in the world and have their finger on the scale. I personally would vote my money to not support their stranglehold on our dollars.
Almost everyday when I witness traffic, I think how insane that all those engines are running and polluting with all of those vehicles sitting still. It appears insane to me. Admittedly I’m part of the problem too.
