As someone with experience in every industry he's talking about (Air Force vehicle mechanic, solar farm builder and current labor lobbyist) I can confirm he's incorrect on every meaningful point. I'll break them down in order of what I perceive as importance.scirreeve wrote: ↑Wed Sep 23, 2020 10:09 pm Gav pretends to understand shit. Nice spelling!

Facist environmental progaganda can't change physics and banning gas cars won't improve the environment.
A tesla model S holds 100kwh of charge. That means you need a 20 kw generator at 50% load for 10 hours which uses about 10 gallons of fuel . The cars range is 348 miles. That means you're getting 34.8 miles for every gallon of gas you need.
But what abour solar. I love solar too . You'll need about 40 400w solar panels for one car and industrial power inverters to make it run the charger. Solar is great but expect to spend about 30,000 minimum for the solar to charge it.
Oh and when the 8 year lifesoabd of your model S battery ends you need a new one after you dump that 1200lbs of lithium watse. Don't forget you're not alowed
So ya electric cars, solar and alternative energies are interesting. Maybe in a few decades they will even become practical witjiur socislist substadies.

Goverment. Ban gas cars.
Me: Your tech giants can barley make a phone that lasts all day and we burn gas to make the eletricity to charge them.
(1) The government isn't planning to "ban gas cars" subsidizing replacements isn't banning existing ones which would admittedly be counterproductive.
(2) Good news Gavvy! We're already there on solar! Industrial solar panels are already so advanced that solar farms are many times more efficient that fossil fuel plants. That's why people with the money and positioning to install high quality solar often sell back power to the grid since even with charging 2 count them 2 tesla's and the entire 4 bedroom house they won't use all the energy produced. The actual problems with solar at this point are ironically that they are two cheap and efficient. (Yes it is possible for something to be "too good" excessive backfired puts too much strain on transformers etc which is why in areas where there is a lot of solar available they encourage you to use more energy to burn off excess. Also photovoltaic panels are so cheap and easy to make power companies don't bother recycling them and just throw them away when they get damaged and buy new ones)
(3) you can't throw away batteries because 100% of batteries are recycled. This is also the case with gasoline and diesil vehicles so I don't know what his point is. That's why they charge and return a core cost when you buy a battery, if you chuck it they can't sell it to the recycling facility. I guess Gavvy just poisons his ground to own the libs or something?
(4) why is 34 miles per gallon apparently terrible mileage to him? At worst his argument is that it creates an equal amount or waste/pollution and that's disregarding transport of the fuel and other factors that would also effect pollution and waste.
(5) Gavin doesn't know what socialist means....
