    An electric charger powered by a diesel generator , we are the stupidest species on the planet.
    Electric cars ; A plan that doesn’t work to fix a problem that doesn’t exist.
    The above was taken from a joke page sent to me.

    Interesting report today on the amount of Copper still available.
    At current use could all be gone by 2043.

    It's the same with hydrogen, use power to create hydrogen.
    Why can't they us natural gas fuel cells, provides hot water and electricity, no toxic gas emitted. Only by product is water.
    Reading tow centre have been using a natural gas fuel cell for years, to water for the swimming pool and electrical power for council buildings.

    A case here in Sydney, a Lithium battery on a small golf push cart exploded while charging in an apartment, the owner was asked why don't you charge it at the golf club, answer, they won't let us too dangerous.

    Porche will develop a bio fuel to replace petrol.

    Toyota will continue making ICE motors as they see there will be a continued need for them.
    They estimate the maximum take up of EV will be at about 30% of all vehicles by 2050.

    Interesting bit on the net today about the amount of power that will be required to recharge all the batteries predicted by govs that will exist by 2050.
    It beggars belief that current supply will not be enough for even 20% of all EV by then.

    Toyota Hybrid.
    According to an article I read yesterday, Toyota's policy of not going all electric, has paid off for them. Last year saw a record profit of $30.3 billion. In the same article Ford was losing money on each electric car sold.
    I never fancied an all electric but would settle for Scalextric's.
