    This is hilarious. He probably crapped his pants. Even the average EV out accelerates a sports car.

    Same thing with iPhones playing the most demanding games; their batteries suffer.
    That's probably why they don't have a 120Hz refresh rate, yet. We could see that next year (maybe) or in 2023. That too takes a toll on batteries; the reason why smart adaptive refresh rate is best...like in some top Android smartphones. You can have high mileage still with efficient batteries (dual configuration).

    * EV manufacturers are working hard with investors cash to perfect their batteries...made in Canada, Mexico, etc. ...With materials from all over the planet (Lithium from Afghanistan, etc.).

    Re: EV Cars

    Spending Billions upon Billions... But those in the know, know...


    Google Engineers Explain Why They Stopped R&D in Renewable Energy

    “This realization was frankly shocking.”


    The team came to that conclusion after examining different scenarios for renewable energy penetration using a low-carbon modeling tool from the consulting firm McKinsey. They compared those scenarios to former NASA scientist James Hansen's famous 2008 model showing that a 350 ppm emissions level was needed to stabilize the climate.

    They didn't find promising results:

    We decided to combine our energy innovation study’s best-case scenario results with Hansen’s climate model to see whether a 55 percent emission cut by 2050 would bring the world back below that 350-ppm threshold. Our calculations revealed otherwise. Even if every renewable energy technology advanced as quickly as imagined and they were all applied globally, atmospheric CO2 levels wouldn’t just remain above 350 ppm; they would continue to rise exponentially due to continued fossil fuel use. So our best-case scenario, which was based on our most optimistic forecasts for renewable energy, would still result in severe climate change, with all its dire consequences: shifting climatic zones, freshwater shortages, eroding coasts, and ocean acidification, among others. Our reckoning showed that reversing the trend would require...radical technological advances in cheap zero-carbon energy, as well as a method of extracting CO2 from the atmosphere and sequestering the carbon.



    Incremental improvements to existing technologies aren’t enough; we need something truly disruptive to reverse climate change. What, then, is the energy technology that can meet the challenging cost targets? How will we remove CO2 from the air? We don’t have the answers. Those technologies haven’t been invented yet.

    Disinformation? Is that like a new blanket statement when convenient or the truth is inconvenient? You call information from the best engineers that Google money can buy disinformation? There is a reason Elon Musk is donating $100 Million for carbon sequestration ideas. The green energy approach won't get us there fast enough. It is not possible.

    Re: EV Cars

    Trying to solve the climate change in a disruptive way will only hurt everyone. You can drive your EV and you can feel good about it, I get that but we have some very serious problems brewing because many administrations and policy makers around the globe are taking an approach that neither the demand created by our civilization, nor the infrastructure is capable of dealing with. With news like this, we can all clearly see that we will be all paying through the nose for ALL the changes.... Trust that EV is not going to change anything but only complicate things further in the mean time.

    From CNN for example as the first article that popped up! CNN! I repeat the left leaning CNN so one should not claim political agenda and disinformation here Also notice everyone is scrambling to secure oil, gas and coal, not more windmills....



    Astronomical increases in natural gas prices. Skyrocketing coal costs. Predictions of $100 oil.

    A global energy crunch caused by weather and a resurgence in demand is getting worse, stirring alarm ahead of the winter, when more energy is needed to light and heat homes.

    Governments around the world are trying to limit the impact on consumers, but acknowledge they may not be able to prevent bills spiking.


    Further complicating the picture is mounting pressure on governments to accelerate the transition to cleaner energy as world leaders prepare for a critical climate summit in November.

    In China, rolling blackouts for residents have already begun, while in India power stations are scrambling for coal. Consumer advocates in Europe are calling for a ban on disconnections if customers can't promptly settle what they owe.

    "This price shock is an unexpected crisis at a critical juncture," EU energy chief Kadri Simson said Wednesday, confirming the bloc will outline its longer-term policy response next week. "The immediate priority should be to mitigate social impacts and protect vulnerable households."

    In Europe, natural gas is now trading at the equivalent of $230 per barrel, in oil terms — up more than 130% since the beginning of September and more than eight times higher than the same point last year, according to data from Independent Commodity Intelligence Services.

    In East Asia, the cost of natural gas is up 85% since the start of September, hitting roughly $204 per barrel in oil terms. Prices remain much lower in the United States, a net exporter of natural gas, but still have shot up to their highest levels in 13 years.

    "A lot of it is feeding off of fear about what the winter's going to look like," said Nikos Tsafos, an energy and geopolitics expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington-based think tank. He thinks that anxiety has caused the market to break away from the fundamentals of supply and demand.

    The frenzy to secure natural gas is also pushing up the price of coal and oil, which can be used as substitutes in some cases, but are even worse for the climate. India, which remains extremely dependent on coal, said this week that as many as 63 of its 135 coal-fired power plants have two days or less of supplies.

    The circumstances are causing central banks and investors to worry. Rising energy prices are contributing to inflation, which already was a major concern as the global economy tries to shake off the lingering effects of Covid-19. Dynamics over the winter could make matters worse.

    Re: EV Cars

    China and others will be very happy to provide everyone with an EV but to make that happen and in the mean time... Again, notice there are no windmills and no solar panels mentioned...




    BEIJING/SINGAPORE, Oct 8 (Reuters) - China has ordered its two top coal regions to boost output and will allow coal-fired power utilities to charge customers higher prices as the country battles its worst power crunch in years.

    Inner Mongolia and Shanxi told coal miners to lift combined annual production capacity by more than 160 million tonnes, while China's cabinet said market coal-fired power prices may now fluctuate up to 20% from base rates, an increase on previous limits, or more for high energy consuming sectors.

    The pricing adjustment is designed to prevent high energy consumption, state media reported, adding that prices for residential and agricultural users, as well as public welfare initiatives, would be kept stable.

    Near-record high thermal coal prices and electricity shortages that have prompted power rationing across China have dented the country's industrial output and threaten its economic growth.

    Shanxi, China's biggest coal-producing region, ordered its 98 coal mines to raise annual output capacity by 55.3 million tonnes over the remainder of the year, an official from the provincial government confirmed on Friday in a document reviewed by Reuters. read more

    Shanxi will also allow some 51 coal mines that had hit their maximum annual production levels to keep producing in the fourth quarter and to raise capacity by 8 million tonnes, which is expected to add 20.65 million tonnes of extra supply.
