    And what were Tesla owners doing over the Black Friday weekend?

    VIDEO: TESLA DRIVERS WAIT UP TO AN HOUR TO CHARGE ELECTRIC VEHICLES
    Footage shows drivers queued up back-to-back in lines stretching over a half mile long

    Tesla owners in California waited in long lines to charge their electric vehicles over the holiday weekend.

    Footage out of Kettleman City, the location of one of the largest supercharging sites boasting up to 40 chargers, shows drivers queued up back-to-back in a line about a half mile long.

    Testy drivers attempting to juice up after Black Friday sounded off on social media, claiming the wait time was anywhere from thirty minutes to well over an hour...

    They don't know what to do with all the empty space. :)

    Another U-Haul towing a car with California plates pulled into my neighborhood last night.

    It's a mass exodus, far bigger than the migration from the Great Plains to California in the Dust Bowl 1930's.

    What are people in apartments supposed to do? They can't generate their own electricity. They have to rely on an electric company.

    Because a whole house can be blown over as well.

    Why is it when a solution relating to energy is proposed the anti global warming crowd suddenly take an extreme position?

    I will break it down

    A decentralised grid has multiple smaller inputs

    Now apartments may not have capacity for solar but if we effort into good design we can reduce energy requirement and now there is also this

    Oops! That is right! According to the great messiah windmills cause cancer

    And no I am aware that you will not achieve 100% but it was NEVER about that

    My house has been through several hurricanes and has not been blown over while at the same time had limbs and other flying debris hit the roof in once case requiring it be replaced. I already pay $2000 in just wind coverage add $40,000 worth of solar panels on top of it and that could more than double.

    Gee, thanks.

    But if they’re fleeing liberalism (high taxes, illegals, political correctness), they’re probably red voters.

    A solar panel is like 100 bucks. So you're sticking 400 on your roof? Damn! lol

    Texas has it all ... beautiful beaches, mountains, deserts, plains, forests, swamps, etc. The only thing we don’t have is frozen tundra.

    Sorry but you are quoting from a known conspiracy theory site and you question the veracity of scientific research?

    Constantly for years I read about Right Wing Republicans saying about a "mass exodus, far greater than anything, blahs, blah, blah", yet despite building subdivisions and infill in and empty space anywhere, the vacancy rate remains almost not existant and even old 1 bedroom apartments without evenda dishwasher is $1,600 per year plus trash and utilities!

    With a waiting list to rent, and a 1 bedroom condo to buy is over $500,000. And there arent many available there, either!

    Sorry, this "exodus" is brings more people in than who leave, regardless of how many U-hauls leave California per your street.

    Whereas my first project I had to go out to Texas, a friend told me to be ready for bugs and cockroaches as big as dinner plates! Between that and the humidity over 90%, yum!

    The Americans leaving California are being replaced by Central Americans. So the population level is remaining fairly constant.

    I've lived here 34 years, since I graduated college. I've seen literally one or two roaches in all that time. Spiders are more common, but I haven't seen many of them either. And the humidity in Dallas isn't anywhere near as bad as in the Southeast (NC, GA, FL).

    Tweets? Tweets?

    Are you trying to tell me that tweets are as scientifically accurate as research?

    Observation is research. If you are refuting there were these long lines then provide evidence of it.

    Much better

    Now after actually READING the article a couple of things become clearer

    1. EV’s are sales outstripping the building of the new infrastructure required
    2. No one is selling their EVs
    3. Most of the issues were in one area
    4. Extra chargers were being installed

    No it is not

    Observation can form PART of research but it is calcified as qualitative rather than quantitative

    Qualitative research says, yes there were problems quantitative research does what I did in the previous post, what was the issue, where was the issue and how often was this repeated?

    Don’t tell me that you will never see a line up for petrol
