we are 14 trillion fucking dollars in debt, and they want to spend it on fucking acronyms where they sit around building shit we cant sell to anyone. fuck these people.
No you are only off by 2.8 trillion it's 16.878 trillion
Not that much. Sulfur, mercury, and lead kills people. C02 kills civilizations, so the emphasis is pretty much spot-on.
OSHA's maximum safe level is 3% (30,000 ppm) and 10% (100,000 ppm) is considered lethal so 400 ppm is no big deal.
Doesn't this just turn your EV into a less-efficient gasoline-powered vehicle?
There's a common misconception that because an EV puts out no emissions, that it's 100% clean. And that because electric motors are 80%-90% efficient, EVs are 80%-90% efficient.
That number conveniently ignores the battery efficiency.
So lets re run those number including every thing.
Fuel to electricity 40% ( Generation plant)
Battery Depends on chemistry
DC Motor 75-92%
Bottom Line From fuel to road
Best case 30%
Wost case with current EV batteries 18%
Modern ICE 20-25%
SOFC EV 45%
Machines that have broken down will work perfectly when the repairman arrives.
