US infrastructure as it is cannot sustain a significant electrification of cars.
Oh, sure it can. Adding a 2kW battery to every car would increase fleet mileage perhaps 20%, and the EV can choose to charge or not, based on dynamic rates. That's electrification. They don't have to be 100% BEV right away. PHEVs also be lighter, faster, and generally better. Think "2024 Formula 1 car," not "2015 Nissan Leaf."

The cable is fully loaded on a cold winter night, without charging any Teslas.
Why would a cold winter night matter? Are you people heating shacks with toasters up there? Get some ground-source heat pumps and spray-in insulation whenever there's a renovation. The Canadians have been doing it for a decade.

Maybe you can unretire and build some nice new nukes before 2050, and then the whole problem goes away.

I could care less what the Government approves. I have my headlights coded with the Dazzle feature and the engine idle disabled. :p

The good news is none of this is happening at once. We'll build more grid infrastructure and solve urban charging. Even if we adhere to the 2030 timeframe for all new cars we'd still have over 50% of the US car population in gas cars in 2040. Gas stations didn't all spring up at once :)
According to the International Energy Agency, a predicted 23 million EVs sold worldwide in 2030 could lead to 5,750,000 tonnes of retired batteries by 2040, and this waste will keep piling up as EVs replace internal combustion engine vehicles.

Infrastructure will not support significant numbers of EV.

Made ya cry. LOL

Relevance? Relevance is for tiny little closed minds. Willis don't need no stinking relevance. He is often thought provoking, rarely linear, and occasionally obtuse. But good teams need someone way out there on the spectrum to keep injecting creativity.

That land fill number is scary. A Pacific Ocean plastic garbage path on a grand scale.

. No offense, but I seriously wouldn’t want to get cornered by the two of you at a cocktail party. I’m sure the convo would be thrilling!

Happy thanksgiving!

Big Five Personality Dimensions
Extraversion - 26th percentile - low
Agreeableness - 3rd percentile - extremely low
Conscientiousness
- 96th percentile - extremely high
Neuroticism - 19th percentile - very low
Openness - 14th percentile - very low
The Big Five personality dimensions are broad personality traits that describe the majority of ways that people can differ from each other. What does this mean?

Heh heh heh. Y’all bots are outed.

Personality. We used a language based person- ality model to estimate the Big Five personality traits: openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism (Park et al., 2015). This model was built over 1-3grams and a set of 2,000 LDA (Latent Dirichlet Alloca- tion; Blei et al. 2003) topics and resulted in predic- tion accuracies (Pearson r) of .43 (openness), .37 (conscientiousness), .42 (extraversion), .35 (agree- ableness) and .35 (neuroticism). Park et al. showed that these prediction accuracies are higher than correlations between self-report personality and personality ratings by friends.

You’re making my point.

You are looking for points for stating the obvious?

Let us see your Big Five scores from that site, where judgements are not made. Read and understand Jordan B. Peterson.
