The purpose of this thread is to come up with some interesting arguments pro or against EVs. Be as biased as you like, but you need to provide detail, e.g., "electric vehicles are wimpy" is not sufficient.
One is try and think of some ways to charge an ICE. If someone points out that your EV is slow, has limited range, ect., ask them a way they can charge up their car from a renewable source, because gas is running out. Gasoline cannot be replaced. You just can't replace the gasoline that is being used up on the planet. How do you make your ICE renewable in a sense:
Deep fry everything you eat and save the oil. Convert your car to bio desel.
Get a cow/pig/whatever to cut your lawn and convert its waste/fat to burnable fuel
Go to every McDonalds and collect their used oil
Save your sewage and use it for methane production
Eat a lot of beans and you know what :O
Use a steam engine and burn trash or wood
Become a farmer and grow about 100 acres of corn (I don't know exact #s but its a lot) and build a refinery to convert the corn to ethanol
All sounds very convenient right? I'd prefer a solar panel/wind generator that gives you electricity to charge an EV. Can you think of a way to beat that?
Another argument is that horses are a great means of transportation. So are bicycles (human power). I hope you are looking forward to it once gasoline is used up. Of course there are always EVs...
