German Engine Expert Doesn’t Believe In The Battery, Calls For A “Return To Sobriety”

Electric car proponents keep insisting that breakthroughs in electric car battery technology are just around the corner, and that soon electric cars will no longer be hampered by limited range and long charging times. Thus we should start banning internal combustion cars soon.

    Electric cars are expensive, inconvenient, and have low re-sale because of battery degradation. But they have high virtue signalling value … at least until enough people realize that they are not actually environmentally friendly, either.

    People have been deceived by the so called “environmental benefits” of driving electric cars. Well for one thing just take a look at that open pit mine in the picture above and ask your self if that looks environmentally friendly. This is not just for electric car batteries that these open pit mines are being used for but for a variety of other electronic devices including cell phones(i-phones)/tablets as well. How often do you hear about people trading in and even disposing of a perfectly functioning cell phone in order to receive the latest version because it has a better camera on it for example. I have no doubt that these environmentally conscious individuals have cell phones(i-phones) and do trade them in for the latest version which do more harm to the environment than electronic batteries do the much larger supply of them on the market. These people are completely ignorant of this fact. At the same time they will gladly demonize fossil fuel claiming that extracting them from the ground is “environmentally disastrous”. Actually the opposite is true since in Alberta for example when they have finished extracting the resources needed to produce fossil fuels from an open pit mine they reclaim the land to an environmentally friendly ecosystem something that the open pit mine extractors can not boast about.

      Yes, but global warming!

    The biggest problem with electric cars is that the real marxists don’t believe the masses should be in possession of any form of privately owned unfettered transportation.

      exactly – hence their fascination with the old stanby – railroads. Also makes it easier to transport us deplorables to the death-err-fun camps that they want to organize.

    Everytime they tell us something is ‘just around the corner’ it reminds me of chinas great leap forward and that in five years ,they would be ahead of everyone on the planet. Instead, it resulted in mass starvation and death – so much for technical progress!

    As a sidenote, only 45million dead in China in 4 years they say – but of course, nazism is bad – maoism/marxism is good (maybe good at killing more people – buy hey, i’m just an idiot!). Antifa must wear the same label of shame that nazis wear to this day – to hell with them both.

      Progress! to the early 20th century – The Detroit Electric Car: Anderson had previously been known as the Anderson Carriage Company
      (until 1911), producing carriages and buggies since 1884. Production of
      the electric automobile, powered by a rechargeable lead acid battery,
      began in 1907. For an additional US$600, an Edison nickel-iron battery
      was available from 1911 to 1916. The cars were advertised as reliably
      getting 80 miles (130 km) between battery recharging, although in one
      test a Detroit Electric ran 211.3 miles (340.1 km) on a single charge.

    Maybe we ought to bring back the Stanley Steamer.
