    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Exaggeration using made up counterarguments is what was offered, and was not equivalent to "clearly stated arguments." If so urgent, opposing a proposal to increase the market for used EV's, at least in theory, shows the true nature of their motivation wasn't global betterment, but Gore-ish self...

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    I'm sorry, but I called the messenger's bluff and would yours if I cared. No-one here expects EV's not to replace ICE to some extent and even to a large extent if its not economic suicide or freedom killing. Letting poor people benefit from free solar electricity, which would benefit towards...

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Distillation into different length hydrocarbon units is always the first step and leads to various fractions that include gasoline and diesel. Cracking is making long chains into smaller more useful chains. Its ludicrous to think that economically creating longer chains from gasoline so as to...

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Yeah I guess "20 years" is another one of your exaggerations. Enjoy the 2.1% EV penetration while we can still afford even that. Let the peasants eat cake - no free solar electricity in public places for you!!! Mazda is slowly electrifying but I would wager is still developing ICE's. The...

    Different subject. Sorry. Oh, and very flawed logic. Begging the question shouldn't be part of your argument. You need to take a break. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fallacies

    You really think this is all about you. Sorry, but its not.

    I'm playing a mental game of 'what if' while you are looking for a "solution" to a different problem. I don't care a whit about "surplus electricity" if we have unlimited solar energy covering the entire landscape and thankfully cheaper solar tech.

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    I'm trying to, but you can't see the "simple logic path" I'm taking to increase EV use. Not that you care a whit, since obviously poor people will have their waterfront property under water and their basements flooded by all the storms, being displaced and needing to abandon their homes from...

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Oh and the other point is subsidies can theoretically make EV's more expensive, so removing them can also, paradoxically, create a better market for EV's when the prices go down. But that might not happen since EV "penetration" is hovering around 2%, so maybe not....

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Its not about you. Its not about getting more energy from wind and solar. Its just a simple mental experiment. Your grandiose thoughts should be put aside because we are just playing a game: get rid of EV subsidies and subsidize public charging from solar tech instead. One example of a benefit...

    Free as in no upfront costs to support very expensive wind mills? Dunno. The point is to make people of lesser means wish to get into the market, not give "free" expensive energy to well-heeled individuals and families. Its a mental experiment.
