How will the power be generated to charge all those cars here in the US? 2.5 to 3M cars a year.

Can the current power network (or whatever it is called) handle it, if not, how will that power be generated.

@greykitkat36 recently asked me the same thing.

I highly recommend you go back through this thread if you really want to understand....I've put a lot of work into maintaining this thread with articles over the years that show the renewable transition taking place.

But here is a timely article on the same info I've posted on:

The media has been saying "competition is coming" for Tesla since the beginning. Nah. Audi just unveiled its 2022 e-tron GT and it still can't beat Tesla.

The competition is EV vs. ICE.

A lot of my dadís friends worked in the offshore oil industry, and I liked the sound of working outside, being busy and keeping on my feet. Iím not sure how Iíd cope being stuck in an office all day. Everyone I spoke to said the same thing: oil is dead, renewables are the future.

I posted about the warning on 1.29 and now the action has been taken.

Exxon Mobil Corp., Chevron Corp. and ConocoPhillips had their credit ratings lowered after S&P Global Ratings followed through on its recent warning and revised the industryís risk profile due to climate change and weak earnings.

Elon Musk was on Joe Rogan again yesterday. Rogan asked me if he ever thought about making planes. He said "If I ever tried my brain would explode"

I've posted articles on this before, but wanted to reiterate in case people forgot and so you don't get caught in the hydrogen media talk.

Green hydrogen has been a passion project of technologists since the 1970s, but has historically not been able to economically compete with brown and black hydrogen because electrolyzer technologies that enable it are not mass-manufactured, thus are too capital intense.

I've been hearing about hydrogen fuel cell cars since I was a Freshman in high school (1997). It doesn't seem to have progressed at all since then. Meanwhile electric cars are taking off
