All of knee jerk climate change reactions is spilling my Coolaid.Top up your Koolaid Gale; you clearly haven't been drinking enough.
(I actually DO like EVs, for certain usage patterns).
Some of the irritation on this topic is definitely Carrrot and Stick related. Meaning.... we (Canadians at least) are going to get Beaten (even harder) with The Stick, so we take The Carrot.
Yesterday, I was startled a bit, by a # referenced in scheduled carbon taxes coming in the next year here. Call it +$1.00/gallon, and you won't be far off. Not that we have low cost fuel now....
If I was a neuro-surgeon (or some other 1%'er) and could just write a couple of cheques and load my compound with PV panels and a fleet of Teslas, I wouldn't consider this as a problem.....
Somebody started a BC Flood thread on here recently. I posted a video over there today, that was from engineers in 2020 re. the Fraser Valley floodplain. I knew about the 1948 flood there, but learned about the 1894 one in that vid - it was worse. Doubt there were many ICE vehicles in 1894.....
I'm not a Denier, but there is plenty of Cognitive Dissonance at play, on both sides of the story.....
(^ Not in your case Gale.... your open and inquisitive approach to these topics keeps me hanging out here.....)
I hope to never buy another ICE vehicle after experiencing a low end EV. I have come to realize my anti-EV thoughts of yesterday were based on nothing more than ignorance due to lack of first hand experience.
I do hope our 2010 F-150 with the 10K tow package and 220,000 miles on it is good for a half million miles.
