What I dont get is this:
Full electric cars.
Where do these clowns think the majority of electricity comes from?
Here are some clues. 1) NOT solar 2) NOT wind
Yes, some power generation does occur from a renewable source. Hydro. Especially in my neiborhood. Canadian hydro power.
The majority of the remaining power comes from COAL. Electric is not the solution.
How about this for a concept car...A VW or Audi clean diesel hybrid, engineered to run B100! Not B5 or B10, like most all american sold diesels, FULL B100. Cant get much greener than that, IMHO.
I have a tidal Power plant just a few miles from me. Been there for about 30 years. Guess how much power we have gotten from it. That would be ZERO. It all goes to the New England states. It's a clean renewable way to generate power but we get none of it. Instead our government thinks it makes more sense to supply us with power from a coal fired plant. A couple years ago in the middle of winter we had a nasty storm which knocked out power for days. Alot of people had no heat & was forced to take shelter in schools, firehalls etc.. But that powerplant was still running & we still got none of it. Would take too much time to switch it over to the local grid we was told. That pissed alot of people off & was one of the reasons the government was voted out in the next election. Didn't make a difference though cause we still get none of it.
