      A coworker of mine believes that this massive push towards electric vehicles in the last 10 years is part of a plan to condition the public into ceasing long distance trips, since you’ll have to stop every few hundred miles and take a 3hr lunch. The end goal being restricted interstate travel.

      In other words, 20 years from now, if you want to go from LA to NYC, you’ll either need to fly (and you’ll be on a no fly list if you’ve ever said naughty things online) or you’ll need to apply for a passage permit to make a week long trip and get your butthole searched at 12 different border crossings.

      Feasible scenario or nah

      Globohomo has been trying to restrict traveling since the dawn of times, because why would you just let your source of money walk away. But no the electric car push is not a conspiracy, just money laundering.

      What’s unfeasible about this is the /poo/tard conspiracy theory brain required to think a vast global government conspiracy is in place to restrict people’s freedom for some reason, and that this is a more feasible theory than governments fumbling trying to find some way to reduce CO2 emissions or fossil fuel dependency.

              568,000 excess deaths really did happen in the US last year, and about 500,000 COVID deaths reported by the end of December 2020. That’s not nothing.

              However their statistics keeping has been so full of shit that over half of those "COVID deaths" were really caused by something else. Not only are over half the PCR test results false positives,
              https://off-guardian.org/2021/03/27/making-something-out-of-nothing-pcr-tests-ct-values-and-false-positives/
              But the test we’ve been using can’t tell the difference between SARS-CoV-2 and influenza. So many of those people had the flu and weren’t treated for it,
              https://www.cdc.gov/csels/dls/locs/2021/07-21-2021-lab-alert-Changes_CDC_RT-PCR_SARS-CoV-2_Testing_1.html
              Then when you consider that a COVID death is any death within 28 days of a positive test, the majority of these excess deaths are attributable to missed medical treatments. Consider that COVID is treatable and we’re obliged to pretend it isn’t, and almost ALL of these 568,000 were attributable to missed medical treatments.
              And there will be more due to people skipping checkups and cancer screenings.

              Make no mistake about is, this isn’t a nothingburger. This is the biggest public health mistake in recent history

                    I don’t live in the EU but their updated laws on consumer trust issues have provided benefit to the entirety of the tech sector and they have good privacy laws. That gives them props in my book, much better than US ‘rulings’ that literally always rule in favor of giant american megacorps like google and apple.

                      They do make some good laws occasionally.
                      But 90% of what the EU does is pump money around, mostly as farming/fishing subsidies but also loads of pet projects that leak money into the pockets of politicians.

                Most hospitals are paid to label a patient’s reason for death as Corona if they MAY have been exposed to get more money. The stats are inflated from the start. Plus, the tests are not accurate either.

                Most likely the vaccine itself does not do harm, but just keeps pumping spike proteins that lead to false testing and this cycle of ‘having to get tested’ and forces people to get used to being tested, or risk having a ‘low social credit score’.

                  Yeah, I knew that, also they will give a hospital $13,000 for a COVID admission, and $39,000 instead if that patient goes on a ventilator.
                  However PCR tests do not look for proteins. They look for genetic material, either RNA or DNA, and they take samples from the mouth and nose, not the blood. The vaccines use genetic material that encodes for the spike protein but that eventually breaks down.
                  The vaccine results in a concentration of spike proteins and thus antibodies in capillaries, such as those in the lungs. This is why people who get the shot become asymptomatic carriers, because they have antibodies in their lungs but not in their noses where the virus can still replicate.

                  The vaccine is not harmless either. Spike proteins are not harmless, they cause clotting and inflammation. A drug that’s caused more deaths than all other vaccines in VAERS history combined is not harmless.

                    If anything, just avoid the shot, have your kids to avoid a "Children Of Men" scneario, and see what happens in a few years when the REAL results come in. Until then, I think its safe to say people could ignore it and the pressure altogether, despite what you might think. I also think the ‘paralysis’ videos are staged as well. Sounds crazy, but its a double-think take to only make Conservatives look stupid.

              Excess death rates make the covid impact quite clear. Especially in the US. Of course depending on how much /poo/aid you drink, all these stats are deep state propaganda and only stats that support the covid-is-fake theory can be assumed to be sound.

      Your coworker is a schitzo. There is a massive push to electric vehicles because they are far more efficient in pretty much every way. It’s not like people are travelling thousands of miles in their cars as a common thing anyway, and even that is possible and will become even more possible as batteries improve and fast charging becomes more common.

        That’s true but it will be as simple as getting a discount on electricity at certain times, and smart home chargers that take advantage of the cheaper electricity.
        ie: you plug them in at 6PM, but it won’t start charging until about 9PM when prices are cheaper.

      idk about that, in 20 years time i imagine electric cars may be competitive if not even longer range than ice cars
      not to mention the last time i took a long interstate trip i had to refill my ice car and take a nap anyway, since it’s just not a good idea to drive for 20 hours straight anyway (though i have done that, wouldn’t really recommend it)
      having multiple drivers obviously can extend this, but you’re quickly pushing into pretty rare situations, most people have no desire/need to travel that far that often, and at a certain point it may even be cheaper to just take a domestic plane instead

        Maybe if you are rich as fuck. When people think of electric cars they think of Tesla, but normal people cannot afford that shit. Even with the advancement of electric cars, they will never be as cheap as ICE cars, so normal people will forever be limited to driving tiny shit-boxes with 100 mile ranges.

          yea, i figured someone would come back saying cheaper models will likely cap out at only average ranges just to minimise costs
          and i don’t doubt that at all, ICE will likely remain the best price/range ratio for the foreseeable future, possibly even into the decline of ICE vehicles
          i understand some people will not like that idea, but you have to also understand that most people don’t need 300 mile+ range cars, long range vehicles may become their own category

          There are fairly affordable electric cars with decent range.
          Kia and Hyundai make some for example.

          You do need to consider total cost of ownership.
          Electric cars are more expensive to purchase, but fuel and maintenance is much cheaper.
          They should also last longer, although car makers will always try to artificially shorten lifespans of course.

            Depends on your mileage. If you do like 2000 miles a year, then you will never break even with even the most cheapest electric car. Also ICE maintenance is overrated, the engine is by far the most reliable part of the car, just stuff in some new oil every few years and its happy. All the maintenance costs that are significant also apply to electric cars, like bodywork, and tire wear.

              For most people, especially poor people, fuel costs are a big part of their annual budget. – In France thousands of peasants went on months long protests over a small gas price increase.

              As for maintenance: EV’s also don’t have a clutch or gearbox – that’s where a lot of wear happens with ICE’s.

      It’s not about making it slightly inconvenient since they can and eventually will put superchargers around hotels. Electric cars can be sold for more, and cost more to repair, even though according to one thread on /o/ cost about the same to make. And they really do pollute about half as much as a gas car over their entire lifetimes, which is good enough for politicians to invest in electric and ban gas. Never mind that 15 cargo ships pollute more than all cars on earth.

      A car’s connection to the internet is FAR more likely to be abused to restrict your movement, since the car can be remotely instructed to refuse to start if you misbehave.

          – as expensive as the highest end electric cars
          – range is meh, despite tanks taking up huge amount of space.
          – can’t fuel at home

      Here are the facts:
      The fist two nuclear fusion sites are already being built. Due to the absolutely precise building specifications needed, for example, some of the tolerances for level flooring are to within 0.2 of a millimetre across a 20 metre floor space, building is going slowly. By 2037 both reactors will be working and capable of supplying all the worlds energy needs. No more use for fossil fuels
