    How will we charge electric vehicles if we live in apartments or condos? 200 ft. extension cords? The exteriors will look like spider webs and how will they work during rainstorms?

    I don't think he was criticizing.
    I think he was asking for suggestions.

    In 30 years I won't be able to find my headstone. But you will be confined to an area the gov't gives you so you won't need as much energy to travel. I am glad I live now. I need, use and have used very little in my lifetime. Except that I won't be able to burn wood to stay warm after the gov't makes that a law, I will live as I have.

    I don't think so because internet chat rooms will present the truth as they always have.

    I doubt it. Remember the Great Freeze of '21 and how the state of Texas was blacked out for 3 days? We couldn't even turn on a space heater let alone charge an automobile. This country will never be able to provide enough electricity for the planned obsolescence of fossil fuels.

    I believe it was calculated that we would have to bring an average-sized nuclear plant online every month for the next 15 years to do so.

    I'm just passing on what the energy experts are saying. The world's climate concerns will continue to expand over fossil fuels energy. Environment people are even shutting down farming in some cases because tilling the soil releases carbon into the atmosphere. As far as electricity's future goes like everything else it will continue to change much like other technologies. Bought a light bulb lately?

    As a reminder, I don't think our national power grid can handle a lot of all-electric cars plugging in to recharge. Let's also not forget who controls the world's supply of lithium for electric car batteries and what the mining thereof has been doing to the environment.

    Keep in mind that the ultimate goal is not for everyone to be driving electric vehicles, but for only the elite to be able to drive anything at all. The common folks will have to walk or ride bicycles. If there's not enough electricity to meet everyone's needs, the elite will have their needs met. For that matter, the elite have never been averse to using fossil fuels for their own needs, either.

    I figured it out. Amazon will deliver all you need to your door and you can stay home.

    If they can control your travel as well as your communication sources, they control you completely.
