Don’t forget the ChiCom subsidies.83% of Chinese are too poor to own a car; the PRC is a pathetic 86th in the world in per capita vehicle ownership. At 235 million motor vehicles total, that's far less than the USA or Europe, that billion+population notwithstanding.
Shanghai's glitzy skyscrapers and flashy billionaires notwithstanding, China remains a developing country.
Also, if responding to a complaint about government coercion, citing Communist China might not be the most compelling example.
And all this electricity is going to come from where?
Europe supposedly is going to go all-EV by next Thursday, Also Sprach Das EU. Well, currently the EU generates ~800 MTOE of juice per year (down from ten years ago, thanks to the decommissioning of coal and nuclear plants). But EU consumption of gasoline and diesel - I'm not counting jet fuel, since electric planes aren't a thing - is ~400 MTOE/yr, which means a crash expansion of the power grid by a massive 50 percent- and this while nobody's allowed to build real power plants any more, just pinwheels. You think EV truck stops will take up acreage, just guess how much land will have to be covered in bird-choppers!
Why do you need to correct it? It's not changing anyones mind. People on the opposite side are as dug into their side as you are to yours. Sometimes people just don't like anything (like me with Apple products, or Teles, or Beiber music), and their won't be a damn thing anyone can say, or links that can be posted to change my mind. You like your car, great. I like mine too. If someone doesn't they can suck it, they're not driving it.fine, i don't have the time to correct the wrong that's been posted since yesterday.
Yeah, that'll save the planet. Forcing a few western nations off of gasoline will be more than enough to make up for the free for all that is Asia.I cant speak for the European continent power grids but I've been reading recently that the UK will be 100% renewable energy by 2025.
In today's EGEB: Great Britain's electricity system operator says it will be able to operate the grid with 100% renewables by 2025. Iowa forms a statewide coalition to promote wind energy. A U.K. campus will be able to fulfill nearly three-quarters of its electricity needs from rooftop solar...electrek.co
There are calls for the ban on ICE vehicles to be brought forward a full ten years.
"Graeme Cooper, National Grid’s director of electric vehicles, told a Parliamentary committee that it was confident it could provide whatever charging infrastructure and other infrastructure the conversion to electric cars would require.
Whether it had to do so for a 2030 or 2040 deadline didn't matter, he said; the company could handle the task either way."
Norway and The Netherlands started the trend a few years ago, though they're relatively tiny car markets. Then France and the U.K. joined in. China, the world's largest new-car market by far, is doing it—though the country hasn't decided when. All of those countries plan to ban, or work the end...www.greencarreports.com
Re- Aeroplanes! I think they're next on the hit list with calls to end the subsidies on kerosene. Expect flying to become more expensive as the Dutch are readying plans for a climate tax on flying and the EU could follow suit. https://www.forbes.com/sites/davekeating/2019/06/10/the-dutch-are-readying-a-climate-tax-on-flying-and-the-eu-may-follow/#4a9041c17158
only so when a lurker reads the thread, they eventually see the correct info. i don't give a crap about correcting the mutherFUDders because I know their program.Why do you need to correct it?
I don't use the lane assist, auto park or super cruise. I have tested them all. I just want to be in control. Lane assist makes you look like a drunk, lol
Let’s keep n mind the fact that in the UK power generated by burning wood (yes, wood) is counted as being “renewable” energy. I think this claim needs to be taken with a pinch of salt...I cant speak for the European continent power grids but I've been reading recently that the UK will be 100% renewable energy by 2025.
fine, i don't have the time to correct the wrong that's been posted since yesterday.
Oh I agree it's a nonsense. It was touted as the lesser evil because burning coal would not get the agreed emissions down before the 2020 deadline, yet on the other hand the government are looking at banning wood burning stoves in private houses in heavily built up urban areasLet’s keep n mind the fact that in the UK power generated by burning wood (yes, wood) is counted as being “renewable” energy.
