There’s some sensible questions asked in this piece. (I wonder how much longer even asking such questions will be tolerated?)
As with all environmental measures, the move to electric vehicles seems more like displacing the problem than actually solving it (… even if we can all agree that it is indeed “a problem”). My analogy is that of a partially inflated balloon: squeeze it in one place and it simply inflates somewhere else.
The root cause of so much of the environmental calamity seems to be consuming and coveting. I wonder how much it would be alleviated if we simply abided by the the Biblical injuction for conserving and contentment. (And imagine the positive impact if we observed the sabbath and didn’t divorce).
