Carmageddon is Coming
Angus Hervey

The biggest flaw in your premise is your timeline, which is wildly optimistic at best.

For one, you totally ignore the love affair that the majority of Americans have with their cars, almost to the point that for many their car is an extension of their psyche.

Moreover, you are thinking in urban terms. The transformation that you describe will be much slower to come in the rural countryside.

Lastly, you ignore the additional electrical demand that will be required. If alternative sources such as wind and solar can’t keep pace, we’ll end up burning more coal and natural gas to fuel all these electrical conveyances, and that’s not much better than where we are right now.
