Be kind of nice having that little four-cylinder internal combustion engine up running to charge up the batteries on the drive to and from work....
And just maybe, that little engine might make the day by crippling back to a place where real rescue work can be done.
A thorium-fired sealed recirculating steam power unit to drive the on-board generator, using some fluid medium (even air) to actually provide the motive power.
For electric vehicles to ever work with a high degree of efficiency and reliability, some on-board generation system has to be in place. Batteries are NOT a primary power source, they are just a rather inefficient form of energy storage. Maybe some kind of super-conductor capacitor with a way of modulating the discharge?
Dilithium crystals, that’s the ticket.
This is happening because liberals are taught from birth that you can get something for nothing.
It will happen eventually. Resistance is futile.
