Apparently electric cars aren't so good in wet weather...who would've thunk it? Sarcasm aside, there are probably going to be a lot of growing pains in this fantasy. (i.e Hope you charge it before the power goes out)

Also, self driving cars should be fun.

Electric vehicles are exploding from water damage after Hurricane Ian, top Florida official warns

Good thing water puts out fire...oh, not electrical fires. My bad. That's quite the conundrum there, folks!

For sure. People seem to have a near-pathological fear of nuclear power. And some of it justified (Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, Fukushima). What's fascinating to me is the interests moving behind the scenes to promote green and denigrate nuclear in favor of their national interests.
3 mile island was so overblown.

Electric cars are not green, and this is about control and not saving the earth.

Government can significantly increase their control over our lives by limiting our ability to travel.

I can't do Randolph AFB to Hurlburt Field , or Randolph AFB to Tucson by car in one day if I have to make multiple charging stops.

This is going to do nothing but fuck up the already fucked automotive industry. I can imagine it's only a matter of time before some of them pull out of the Canadian market altogether.

Canada moves to mandate electric vehicle sales starting in 2026
I said it before earlier in this thread, the move to EVs is so misguided and short-sighted. Hydrogen is a significantly better long-term solution. It just needs investment in the infrastructure, which could be an easy conversion for existing gas stations, in the same way the EV infrastructure was built.
