Henry, I am sympathetic.

I’m not opposed to EVs or AVs. If I had the cash right now I’d likely get a plug-in gas-electric car and solar panels (actually, the SmartFlower system is interesting and could double as yard-art if my HOA would allow it).

Plus, by 2030 I’ll be old enough that I probably shouldn’t be driving anymore, and rather than have my kids (rightly) force the car keys from my hand, a self-driving vehicle could be just the ticket.

But I know how things can seem so certain beforehand, because it’s far easier to think of a handful of specific conditions that one must meet than it is the myriad problems one will face. At one point I was excited about the Aptera.

I see in today’s paper that Honda plans to have 2/3 of their vehicles electric by 2030. Well, that $5 could be yours (assuming I’m still here to pay it). I mean, it’s not like the Julian Simon/Paul Ehrlich bet, but I’m not at their pay grade.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
