Given the predicted energy shortfall this coming northern winter, do you heat your home or drive your car. Hmmm, hard choice.It's almost as if this was predicted. Wake up North America, this is inevitable.
Electric car users warned as charging more expensive than PETROL
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.

3 mile island was so overblown.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.
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.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
Yep, about power & money. For example the Pelosi's are highly invested in Tesla.Electric cars are not green, and this is about control and not saving the earth.
Certainly worth the exploration. EVs are a bit of Faustian bargain. This is interesting article on Toyota's ventures with hydrogen as well as some general commentary on viability with an ICE:Hydrogen Fuel Cell should have been what we did instead of electric car subsidies.
Look up the Hy-Wire car. GM had great tech in the early 2000s when Toyota was shilling for hybrid subsidies and tax breaks.Certainly worth the exploration. EVs are a bit of Faustian bargain.

Here's How Toyota Could Save The Internal Combustion Engine
There's certainly opportunity in the marketplace but marketing hype for EVs and lack of infrastructure are key hurdles that need to be overcome.
