Why don't the Eco conservatives call WA state cross walks " Darwinian" crossing zones ? ( portals into alternate ways of existence)
Indeed, lack of electrical plug in stations is sheer shortsightedness on THE HIGHEST order! So what the eco nuts are saying is that there are absolutely no environmental & $ impacts in putting in separate, but equal EV infrastructures ! It takes absolutely no brains to know that's patently false.
On a reality level, it's like being told one has a full tank (200 miles?) but one needs to keep the tank close to fully charged @ all times?
My TDI's 871 mile range (33mpg*26.4 gal tank) remains a pipe dream for EV. The cpmd:fuel/equivalent is also more for EV.
That EV car would be very difficult to operate in a sanctuary city like San Francisco, without a fueling station one could plug into: for a number of hours to overnight . The private answer would be a $1.2 million on up "garage" in a house with installed 240 V on up station. Taxes on that property would be a minimum of app $10,000 per year.
One could wonder how much electricity is consumed looking for a parking space for 45 minutes: each time one needs to park?
But then, God bless Texas!!! OPEC has a deal they calculate will push oil to $ 60. ! Ramp up the frackers, boys & girls!
Yippee! lower oil prices! http://www.wsj.com/articles/opec-discord-sends-oil-prices-lower-1480394173
The leading tower of San Francisco, is this proof positive global warming is true ? https://www.yahoo.com/news/leaning-san-francisco-tower-seen-sinking-space-001653608.html
Let me guess, was VW USA a client too?No! But if VW wants to start a dialog...
But, I do have to say some years ago, our local VW GTG (get together) contingent, was hosted by VW @ the Stanford University grounds to see both the DARPA & "autonomous" Touareg (& TDI ) prototypes. The autonomous VW Touareg TDI eventually won the desert DARPA challenge. (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.)
No trees on the Stanford University campus were harmed during this demonstration (pony rides) .
"A U.S. regulator found software in some Audi vehicles that lowered their carbon dioxide emissions if it detected they were being used under test conditions, Bild am Sonntag reported.For a brief moment, why was I wishing I had one of those?
The paper said the device, which was not the same as the one which triggered last year's diesel emissions scandal at Audi parent Volkswagen, was also used in diesel and gasoline-powered cars in Europe."
