Electric cars will be death traps in most large scale natural disasters. Trying to get away from the fires in California is bad enough, but electric cars do not have the range to get out of the path of a hurricane. Once these cars start croaking, they will be road blocks for everyone else behind them. And, everyone in these cars will be on foot.
They are reaping what they have sown. If anything, I wish the fires would increase 10x in magnitude and properly reward the very people who have created these 3rd world conditions through continued support of this “progressive” (read: Communist) agenda.
Part of me wants that too..
Keep in mind that the areas of California that are hardest hit by blackouts and evacuations are in the rural areas, where many are conservatives, trying with little success to keep CA liberals from enslaving all of us to their demonic beliefs.
Pity, its not hitting ONLY THE LIBERAL areas.. IMO that would be poetic justice.
Frank, I keep trying to envision the future energy mix, where we all have flying cars, fusion power, and black turtleneck sweaters.
Sure electricity is great. Fusion power of course, MSR’s burning nuclear waste of course, and sure solar why not?
But somewhere in the mix we need need to keep a fleet of diesel trucks. Electrical systems are vulnerable to EMP attacks and coronal mass ejections. If everyone was on electric and the big one hit, it would destroy our grid instantly. We’re done.
We need crews in diesel trucks to go out and make repairs to the power plants, electrical lines, etc. Diesel trucks can resist EMP attacks and CME’s. Battery-operated Tesla vehicles can’t. Once we build this magnificent new tech tree we need to protect the roots.
Also I want to keep natural gas. It’s just too convenient for heating and cooking.
And with gas, you can still cook in a power outage.
Sounds good but modern diesel trucks are controlled by computer logic control boards and their systems would cease to function after exposure to an emp attack….everything is computer controlled and nothing electronic works after an emp.
Which is something i can’t bloody understand. FOR a good decade or more, we’ve been hearing about the THREAT of an EMP Attack, yet auto-makers STILL BLOODY MAKE computerized everything for the vehicles.. ARE THEY DUMB or something?
