"You will find the morons that have electric cars are far more aware of how electricity is produced and environmental impacts of traditional verse eclectic cars. What was really amusing about two articles in the Mirror and FT recently that were saying fossil fuelled cars are environmentally better than electric was in fact it showed completely the opposite. They took date from an MIT study then used only exhaust emissions from a small car then compared it with all emissions related to using an electric car basing this study in a part of the USA that gets the highest percentage of it electricity from dirty coal. So worse case scenario for electric to best for conventional and electric still came out best.
Now take a look at the change that is happening in electricity production, when do you think solar is going to begin to compete on price with fossil fuel? It's already happened, then comes the oh but what about storage? Take a look at the trend price of batteries, fossil fuel is a dead man walking.
So please don't call people morons before you look in to the facts. Whats going to happen in the next ten years is going to scare the hell out of people like you.
Well, if you know whats going to happen in the next ten years, is there any reason why you can't share that knowledge with us? Maybe you'll convert a few of us? ..
You need to check out the Singularity University, they are the people that have changed the world recently and are really going to change things. But basically costs come down on just about everything, masses of companies go bust that didn't keep up, driverless cars, cheap renewable energy and so on. This shags the present model of capitalism, if we don't adapt with the change we will be left behind and the change will occur extremely quickly."
