Yes, they have and each year they've gotten closer. Being
able to charge in minutes and not have any components that
chemically degrade is so attractive that I'm fairly
certain that this will be the answer.


Afraid we won't live long enough to enjoy that. The other
issue is that then all the electric vehicle commuters will
want to recharge in 10mins after they got home around 6pm so
they can drive to a nice restaurant with their spouses.
Suddenly a bazillion kilowatts is demanded from the power
grid and ... po0f :-)


So I guess it's inherent and structural that we can't really judge
electric vehicle owners and their anger management failures

You voice the problem of E-cars that is the unspoken problem. The
fossil fuels STILL have to be burned to generate the electricity to
charge the cars. The combination of efficiency of both sources is the
same as a good gas driven car.


If it charges via solar like friends do it who live de-facto off grid,
then it's ok. But one fine day it won't be sunny, there is no wind but
one has to run an errand. Then ... it's the gas generator.


One acquaintance of mine has an all-electric car and a very large solar
array on his house. His system is set up to first recharge the car. When
the car is topped up, the system sends electricity back to the power
company, reducing his bill. He's very happy with it.

Years ago there was an article in scientific some magazine which
described a scenario of electric cars in Los Angeles. It assumed that
the minimum acceptable electric car would be about the size of a V.W.
Bug and that minimum range was something like 50 miles out and back
and I assume, that long ago, Lead-Acid batteries. The author then
calculated the electrical requirements when everyone arrived home and
plugged in their electric car to charge and there wasn't sufficient
electrical power in L.A. to provide it :-)

Back when I lived on a sailing yacht I got quite interested in off
grid living and read a number of articles about it and an interesting
fact was that every one of these off-grid people had a liquid fuel
fired generator set out in the back yard :-)

Until the solar cells have to be replaced. Then the hammer falls. When I attended a solar fair the salesmen were busy telling everyone that the cells lasted for 20 years. I went back and talked to the engineer who worked at that company. He said, 5 years until the output drops 50%, another 5 years for another 50% and by 15 years the output was so low that you weren't really getting any power out of them. And he said that this would only work if you kept the cells clean and in most places dust collects on the cells and must be carefully cleaned off. They took aerial shots of the so-called "solar farms" and they were broken down and falling apart within 5 years. Thermal expansion and contraction in the very hot and then very cold desert areas is not good for them.

What is the environmental damage from the construction and then destruction of solar panel arrays? This is not a minor problem. Do you have any idea of the maintenance problem of large dams? I worked on a detector for finding leaks in a swimming pool and it turns out that they are quite common and account for most of the water loss in a swimming pool. They are not built that way but come into existence as water soaks into the concrete over time. Windmills almost never make their own costs back. But governments can pretend otherwise and even issue reports saying they are effective and efficient when they are not. They are even issuing reports that thorium reactors are a bad idea when they use known technology and the most common radioactive element on Earth. Instead they are putting huge sums of money into fusion which even if it is ever successfully built will yield a great deal less power per reaction. And the pressures required to obtain fusion will be so high that a reactor to power a city will contain a high enough containment vessel that the loss of containment will be an H bomb size explosion.

But trust your Democrat government. They are doing so well in the cities that you can tell they really know what they are doing.

On that note, I sometimes wish for new consistent retroynms for second-person plural pronouns. Once we used 'thee/thou/thy' as singular pronouns, leaving 'you' as unambiguously plural. Then English started using plural forms to show deference, with the singular form taking on some condescending connotations. Now we've lost the singular forms (aside from seeing it in religious language), and what was just 'you' is now in some dialects y'all, yunz, yous[e], or "you lot".

chemically degrade is so attractive that I'm fairly
certain that this will be the answer.


Afraid we won't live long enough to enjoy that. The other
issue is that then all the electric vehicle commuters will
want to recharge in 10mins after they got home around 6pm so
they can drive to a nice restaurant with their spouses.
Suddenly a bazillion kilowatts is demanded from the power
grid and ... po0f :-)

So I guess it's inherent and structural that we can't really
judge electric vehicle owners and their anger management
failures

White person! Not black! I thought only blacks had issues with cops. Of course the article does say "The still-at-large suspect" Guessing if he had been black, they would have shot him down in a hail of bullets and called out every SWAT team in the city. But being white I guess we can ignore it.. He's a good patriotic American, just like those patriots who broke into the Capitol by smashing windows and bludgeoning the cops with stanchions.

Big 5" wide mountain bike tire e-bike. I always find the rims on those bikes funny. Holes in the rim to allow the tube to bulge through. Weird.
