Electric cars only relocate pollution
written by Steve Jay, August 09, 2011
As 80% of the world's electricity is coal fired, EVs still have a carbon footprint higher than the world can sustain. They also add to that footprint the toxic and carbon pollutions inherent in electronics and lithium battery technology.

A far better approach is to invest in farmwaste-derived biofuels such as Vetroleum. (see Sustainable Power LLC of Texas as an example) Waste-derived bio gives farmers an additional cash crop, divert higher greenhouse index methane production (from rotting wastes) to CO2 and close the fuel greenhouse loop. There is panaceahealthsolutions.com also enough annual farmwaste production to generate 5 times the US' energy needs.

Electric cars are a dead end which only compounds dinosaur-powered cars' problems.

Dead end?
written by Wolter Hellmun, August 10, 2011
What are you talking about? Electric cars are the future. Do you know the www.asian-americans.com efficiency of the average combustion engine? Its about 20% - more or less. The efficiency in an electric motor is 96%+. In other words, 4+ electric motors could individually deliver the power of an internal combustion engine each, with the same amount of energy.

While most of only here viagra cost the world's power is generated by coal power plants, that is not true in every country. In my country (Costa Rica) ~80% of the energy comes from hydroelectric power plants.
Either way, if the majority of the people in the world replaced their cars for EVs, and the pollution became a matter of replacing coal power plants for non-perishable resource power plants, the problem would be easier to solve. Not only would the environment would be in less danger, but energy would cease being coal-dependent and thus more economic.

Wouldn't it be cool if it could use lithium-air battery technology and had some solar panels.

Thank you for pointing out the clear carbon fibre panels, these are so important to allow sunlight to penetrate into the engine.

Note how none of these 'electric savers' never speak of the added cost a few years down the road when all the batteries have to www.sinai.org.il be pulled and cialis 20mg lowest price new ones installed. 'Hidden costs' can double the price of the car.

The Army should rather stop making senseless wars (like the one in Irak) as this would save much more energy and money.
