Regardless of the notion that pic leads people to believe about EVs, just think about the lack of common sense involved to be sitting literally on the fog line of a divided highway, with a nice smooth relatively flat area just outside the paved shoulder.
Whether the pic is staged or real, the intelligence is lacking on all fronts.

Europe is now going back to coal, because the have to.
Electricity is going to sky rocket beacuse green energy must be backed up with conventional power plants... So on order to have a reliable energy system, we will need to have two systems... The cost of this will be paid for by someone...Look in the mirror to see who will pay.


Germany and several other countries are temporarily using coal to conserve natural gas, something that was usually coming from Russia and is now in very short supply. This is very easily confirmed.

It has nothing to do with more EVs on the road. lol


Compounding their stupidity Germany is still planning to shut down all three remaining nuclear power plants this year unless something has changed very recently.

Washington Post on German stupidity

The last I heard the Washington Post is a left leaning news source and even they think that Germany is stupid for doing this.

Europe is in war mode. Not really focused on cost or the environment as much as keeping the lights on during the conflict.

China has already decided that dealing with the results of climate change makes more sense than trying to stop it... The proof is in their actions, not their words. We all get together for a multination talk about who will commit to what.... And China never makes any real time commitments. It is always far into the future while today they are building coal power plants.
IOW, they will be burning fossil fuels and laughing at us as we ruin our economy chasing the green dream.

An optimist sees the glass as half full.
An pessimist sees it as half empty.
A realist sees the glass as too big.

Explanation of China bad air:


So all of a sudden — China and India ain’t putting nothing into cleaning that situation up. So all that bad air is coming from them. But since we don’t control the air, our good air decide to float over to China’s bad air.

So when China gets our good air, their bad air got to move. So it moves over to our good air space. And now we got to clean that back up.

I know where your quote comes from. I have to wonder how long before Europe adds US to the class that contains China and India?

Every Tesla has a comp that display range remaining.
Maybe the driver ignored that !?
Or maybe its just another fake photoshop to throw dirt at Tesla from our regular Tesla haters.


EVERY vehicle made in the last 30 years has at least a "low fuel alarm." Anything in the last 10-15 years has a "miles remaining" readout. They tend to read low, as in if it tells you that you've got 50 miles to empty, it's more like 60-70.

We have ALL been guilty of thinking "I can make it to the next exit." Sometimes we do. Sometimes we don't.

I have to wonder how a seemingly very intelligent person such as yourself, who has been a hard working American all his life can be so anti-US and pro-socialist....
