    Yea, and I’m also against having electric power in apartments because that starts fires. Due to potential damage, shall we address apartments not having water?

    Stop denying reality. This is an inevitable necessity.

    This is the way to say there is no plan from the EPA and that the information is made up.

    The fire you are referring to wasn't caused by an electric vehicle. It was a diesel vehicle. The fire was caused by the wiring of the 12 volt battery.....which all cars have.
    "Electrical faults with the 12-volt battery system are the most common cause of car fires, according to the AA's technical expert Greg Carter.

    Mr Carter said diesel is "much less flammable" than petrol, and in a car it takes "intense pressure or sustained flame" to ignite diesel."

    My state gets lots of oil out of the ground. We refine it here. We distribute it here. We sell it here. It is not subject to Biden's "war on oil" as much as blue states.

    I paid $2.62 per gallon to fill my tank today.

    "Today’s average price of gas in the U.S. is $3.25 per gallon" (Today’s Highest Gas Prices By State – Forbes Advisor)

    Screw Biden's war on oil

    What war on oil? We’re producing more now than ever before. Maybe the oil cartel are just getting richer?

    Biden's war on oil determines how man non-EV cars are produced.

    Sedans only weigh about 30% more than an ICE plus there is the opportunity to move into smaller more compact versions eg scooters etc

    Biden’s War on Oil Hits Consumers - WSJ

    Biden Opens New Fronts In His War On U.S. Oil And Gas (forbes.com)his rape of the economy continues. ZMany of us have to pay the outrageous prices he has set since he started.

    No spreeky dee Engrish? Now that Biden has driven the price of gasoline through the roof... we pay through the nose to pay what he wants.

    Now that Biden has driven gas prices as high as $7 and more, he wants us to praise him for dropping it slightly. Still a lot less than the average price of #2.39 when he took over. He's playing us like a violin.

    Trump lowered supply during Covid, now that demand is picking up, supply is not there

    It doesn't matter what caused it. What made it impossible to fight was the presence of lithium ion batteries. A diesel bursting into flames can be put out with water.
    So strapping it to a 700kg road flare is a bad idea.
    It doesn't matter how the fire started if the presence of li-ion batteries means the garage has to burn to the ground.

    The Luton airport fire is the best argument for banning electric cars.

    Yeah it's more like a war on independence. The war on petrochemicals is just a battle.

    Fuel economy standards.

    If you have wondered why pick-up trucks have gotten so giant over the years it's because of fuel economy standards.
