Apparently most studies show cognitive decline begins in the late 50s. So if someone was of only "average" intelligence up to that point, they'll be deficient from then on.

I'm sure with the power grids that were close to tripping out this summer we can plan on plugging in 10 or 20 million cars next summer. Yeah, And I want to see the first one of you idiots that think EV is the answer right now, bring it down and climb Wolf creek pass with your big 5th wheel in tow. We have a cliff that takes care of stupid.

Maybe you are thinking of some other forum. I don't recall anyone on rv.net towing a 5th wheel with an EV.[emoticon]And hey, don't be too hard on yourself. CO isn't the only place with idiots and stupid!

The chance of current POTUS, CA or WA gov getting rid of fossil fuels anytime soon is a real fat chance. The world as a whole is too dependent on fossil fuels to be rid of them in the next 13 years until 2035.
Heck, both states have been trying to get rid of copper based bottom paint for boats by 2020. Less than 10% of bottom paint is copper free where I work. Yes percentage is getting higher for copper free. Percentages lower in copper. But at the moment, copper is still the best pesticide for salt water use. The options are not safer yet for the environment.
We're probably 2 decades before EVs can claim they've made significant headway. For me, realistically, I may be close to calling driving quits by then. Better to sit back and relax, deal with other issues that frankly effect me more than EVs will.

Did you see the bankers getting grilled on the hill today? They are being told to not have any business dealings with fossil fuel companies. They are being attacked from all sides.

Well you figured wrong.
You do know what happens when you make assumptions?

Biden did say that, but I can't provide a link.
And, OBVIOUSLY, we all don't want the fossil fuel companies out of business, not even eventually.
