That is kind of the point -
The video lumps coal in with cleaner natural gas as a single category to suggest coal use is more significant than it is.
It mentions wind and solar, but leaves out hydro etc to diminish cleaner sources.
The video talks of “polluting” but bait-and-switches to “oil use” as it’s parameter to fudge the figure.
(power stations are more efficient than engines, etc)
It claims 60k miles to reach emissions parity, where does that come from? It was between 10k to 15k on the last 2 projects I had contact with.
Busy weekend... Apologies to OP... Both have their use cases, neither will likely go away any time soon. Whether we are talking slot cars or pub transport to trucks, trains, touring motorcycles etc... Synthetic fuels are promising but even that will have tradeoffs and it's still a hydrocarbon and the green nutters will attack that as they did nuclear. 😠 It's almost like they are used for some end, not what they 'claim'.
The media are masters of 'lies of omission'. For example, showing only coal energy production and 'renewable' energy production, leaving out everything else. 😒 The vid at 2:31. 😌Whether they do this out of stupidity, 'possible', AND/OR on purpose to manipulate, profit... You decide. A lot of people will suffer this cold snap from this. A lot of people may not know cold kills far more people then heat. Having lived in freezing cold and Tropical/Desert heat, I'll take tropical/desert every time. If you watch the video, it's not that long, they refer to the study VW carried out, 60k. I haven't reviewed VW's study but that's something that can be reviewed later but it's a reminder that nothing is '100%' green like these nutters vandalizing historical art work or blocking traffic, while using their iphones to virtue signal online.
The video also does a good job reminding people of this:
Also, the idea that displacing or moving something you don't want somewhere else won't affect you... This is probably one of the most dangerous 'games' that politicians and media play on the public in general. Energy, War, you may not like the messenger/message but ignore the message and YOU and or loved ones WILL PAY dearly.
Another important point in the Vid was, EVs will probably not make a big difference, even if MANDATED... Just like the jab. Just like most MANDATES, they will probably do more HARM then GOOD.
Another point, some may not have any idea how much mining is required for this resource or that.. You should visit the USA and see it in person, not a video... It's a lot safer to see a surface mining site here than in other countries.. Not completely safe though.. Oh BTW, you can try panning for gold while your at it. For real! A lot of panning for just a bit but you can get lucky and you get keep it! Minus (uncle)s surgar's cut... 😁 You will learn to appreciate ICEs a lot.
I'd hate to see that stuff like this get censored, someone previously posted that this would get shut down before 39, isn't a good sign.
On a funny/sad note, if you're not patient, search for 'tip' on page. The consequences of the bell curve, it's real. The same as theoretical limits, whether solar power or nuclear.. Or affirmative actions... 🤣
He was elected...
On a more serious note, what do you do about the tails of the curve, both the lower and upper? For real?
The Vid, 2:35, "she's an engineer" As one educated as an engineer, I apologize for her.. 😔 As Texans would say, all hat no cattle.
