Been saying this for years.
EV rant ahead…
Battery electric-only is neither the green or the long term answer for cars, trucks, busses, helicopters, trains, planes..etc! City cars and milk floats, it makes some sense but not EVERY vehicle on the road.
Internal combustion engines are far more efficient and overall better for the environment when driving out of town. No, really they are!
Hybrid is the direction to go. Electric motors for within town and an eco friendly fuel of some sort for the drives out of town, whether it’s some sort of fuel to electric conversion or some new form of combustion fuel.
Really concerned we’re all going to all be forced to jump on the EV bandwagon when the next alternative fuels are just round the corner.
In a few years we’ll have millions of ev vehicles piling up on the scrap heap trying to figure out how to safely dispose of all those volatile lithium batteries! Which caused so much environmental harm to mine out of natural resources, to begin with!
At which point we will look back and think, maybe that wasn’t such a good idea.
