Long Lines for Recharging Electric Cars?

5
273

This long line to charge the EV Tesla in the clip below took place in December 2019, but the question remains. Is this what a massive rush to EVs will cause all Americans? As EVs increase and the Left destroys the fossil fuels needed to power them, will we see more of this? Can they get enough stations up in time? Are they even building any?

One of the problems with EVs is they don’t perform as well in cold regions or in stop-and-go traffic. They have their flaws. Eliminating the gas engine before these cars become efficient sets off alarms.

Good point. Also with that extra weight the tires wear faster AND they put more strain on road surfaces than the average car or small SUV. Add to that they pay ZERO in gasoline taxes to help pay for the roads themselves. States and even Pete Buttjudge want to tax us per mile driven. Do it to the EVs and leave the rest of us alone, we already pay our fair share.

I saw a lot of “EV” Lines over the Christmas Holidays. Back when Hurricane Ida hit, power was out for weeks in Louisiana. I had to crank up the generators on the Ranch for almost a week in Mississippi before the power was restored. It is simple to keep a few barrels of Fuel around Ranch to keep the generators and vehicles operating. I keep a 2 week supply around during Hurricane Season. It’s not so easy to have enough solar panels and batteries around to produce reliable 24 hour power. Electric Vehicles have a lot of draw backs. Over the last 100 years there have been improvements, but EVs still aren’t ready for prime time. Until we figure out how to make Nuclear Fusion work, modern society is dependent on Fossil Fuel. A far better move would be the Hydrogen powered vehicle, or even Natural Gas.

That was a very interesting article at the link.

Electric cars are also at least one thousand pound heavier than gasoline cars ( because of the huge battery , some teslas weight over 6000 pounds) , which means they require more breaking power , which in turn produces more toxic particulates in the environment as the break pads wear out faster.

the extra weight also wears down tires faster which in turn causes more tire dust in the environment.

multiply this by the millions of cars on the planet and you have a lot more of pollution or particulate and dust.

Their heavy weight also damage the roads more than conventional cars.

The way leftist politicians and the media talk about electric cars, they make it sound like they are magical cars that have no down side, but that is a complete myth, and it is unscientific.

I read the Internal energy agency ( a division of the United Nation ) report and even though they still are all for electric cars, they do admit electric cars have a lot of problems.

Only leftist politicians and the media and the gullible under informed public insist that electric cars are magically clean and without problems but that is false and is the opposite of what the scientific facts say.

Let’s say Everyone has gone electric including utility workers etc. What happens when there is a major “power outage”. How does Anyone get a vehicle to run.

I believe it was the first episode in a series called Connections and described if all electric had shut down and it’s aftermath. People don’t realize you cannot Start Up a power plant by just throwing a switch. The reason the eastern seaboard power outage took so long was the difficulty in getting power in order to start up.

Wonder what those EV drivers will do when we run out of electric resources to charge them. Wind and solar won’t do it.
