For comparison, a typical gasoline-powered vehicle has a storage capacity of about 500 kWh and a recharge rate of 15,000 kW. The average driver consumes the gasoline equivalent of 57 kWh per day. Taking into account the fact that gasoline engines are about 25% as efficient as electric motors, each electric car needs about 14 kWh of charge per day, on average. While a gasoline dispenser can refuel as many as 100 cars/day, a charger can only supply 3 cars/day. So, you need at least 30 times as many charging stations as gasoline pumps to support the same number of cars.

I'm surprised that it's as high as 5%. I still have visions of layers of adapter classes, which serve absolutely no purpose other than to appease Java. It's been six years since I've touched the stuff and I still have a bitter Java taste in my mouth.
In answer to your off-topic questions, no and no.
Anti-GMO villagers with pitchforks will kill the project.
The states in the US with the highest vaccination rates are red states and the states with the lowest vaccination rates are blue states.
When I see a study attributed only to anonymous "researchers", I read that as "undergraduates".
when a machine actually reads all these books and starts making comparisons based on content.
Are you being obtuse deliberately?
A libertarian state would never permit, much less mandate, such a thing.
If the database can be stolen, then that, in itself, IS the problem.
You don't need long passwords, just reasonably good ones, to defeat online guessing. Estimates of how quickly billions of guesses can be performed assume that all your encrypted passwords have been downloaded and can be subjected to brute force, offline. That means your security has already been compromised.
Apparently, you don't fully understand the difference between physics and engineering. Technological barriers can often be overcome with advances in materials and design. Declaring them to be insurmountable has been shown to be foolish, many times. Barriers imposed by the properties of matter, on the other hand, are much more durable. Declaring them to be insurmountable is rarely a mistake.
When Snowden's material runs out, he becomes worthless, so it makes sense for him (and his masters) so string it out as long as possible.
No, children, the trolls were not here first. Some of us remember that human beings inhabited the Internet before the Eternal September.
Houston has no zoning. Virtually no one can walk to work.
