      I can't wait until EV's take over and no goes anywhere because there's always a fire on the major highways blocking the roads. What a glorious future to look forward to.

          That's kinda based if the chinks can bring down the price of an EV a shitload, because the price of an EV is insane, especially for something that you can't really keep forever, I don't think the normies and even DA would mind paying $15,000-$20,000 every 10 years for an EV, but paying $50,000+ over and over for something that isn't worth repairing forever is a deal breaker, but if they can get it cheap enough, we'd be good, cause even back in the good old 60s cars were shit quality and didn't last, but they were cheap and you could replace it pretty frequently because it's post ww2 America and you have money.

            There are EVs from 100 years ago that can still be driven.

            >even DA would mind paying $15,000-$20,000 every 10 years for an EV
            Thankfully even EV batteries from 5 years ago cost around $8000 and are expected to last 20 years for automotive use.
            The main reason replacement packs currently cost so much for long-range cars, is that there hasn't been a market because so few cars have needed them.
            Battery replacement / upgrades for short range cars, PHEVs, or Hybrids aren't that uncommon now, and apart from crooked dealers the replacement costs aren't that bad.

            Shade tree mechanics have done their own battery swaps in an afternoon for the cost of a salvaged parts car with an undamaged powertrain.

            Not even the nickel iron batteries or later lead acid batteries they used back then lasted this long. Those cars have been actively maintained.
            The batteries that replaced them? Cheaper, better, and lighter (or with more capacity) than what was in them before.

            What makes you think that NMC lithium ion batteries will be impossible to similarly replace more cheaply decades from now?
            Or that modern EVs won't be able to be maintained when people are already re-using components of them to build their own?

            You're just buying into the same crap people said about Japanese cars 50 years ago.

            Thing is BYD just has no interest in the US market when they can just take over all markets south of the American border

            Should be noted that BYD started off as a battery manufacturer, so they do those really well. But they also learned how to make cars from Toyota, and started off making rebadged Corollas and shit
            Currently they're completely vertically integrated and make almost all of their car parts themself, it gives them a massive advantage over even other chink manufacturers

      How? That's not how a tax credit works.

      I pay tax money, and the Government says to me:
      >Hey, if you do this thing that will save us both money, we'll give you some of the money you paid in back
      So I do the thing, get some of my own money back, and then I'm using less energy, and that means less energy the Government has to subsidize or import from abroad.

      >where the people paid to do the research have to inflate their numbers to get the money.
      That is not how Scientific Research works. They get their money either way, and Scientists get massive boners for knocking down bad research to make a name for themselves.
      Not to say no researcher ever tries to 'fake' something, but when they do there's a massive scandal when they get caught, and they always get caught.
      Which is what has been happening in slow motion over the last 50 years as the Scientific Community has been ringing alarm bells about the increasingly anti-Science stance of the fossil fuel industry.

      >cannot be proven to be better for the environment when we burn gas to make electricity.
      Gasoline largely doesn't get burned to make electricity. Its the other way around. About 6kWh goes into extracting oil, refining gasoline, and then putting that gasoline in your fuel tank.
      6kWh going into an electric car that does 4.2 miles a kWh comes out slightly ahead of a typical gas car.
      Some regions of the US already get the vast majority of their electricity from sources like wind, solar, hydro-electric, and nuclear fission.

      >How is this not theft? How is this okay?
      I bet you've never even considered the trillions that go to subsidizing the fossil fuel industry every single year, or the fact that road use fees paid by internal combustion cars are 1/5 what EVs pay, or that the majority or road maintenance expenditures come out of the general fund.

            There are no resources unique to China that BEV technology requires.

            I go out and look at new cars, and it bothers me that apart from Tesla and the Koreans hardly anyone sells anything competitive.
            China isn't navel gazing trying to return to some idealized past. We can't beat them if we lose ourselves in fantasy.

            If we sit back and rest on older technology we make ourselves and our allies vulnerable.
            Same as countries that were still dependent on horses for their logistics 100 years ago.

            Especially the fact that the strategic interests of the United States is based on 'pure conjecture'. There is nothing hypothetical anymore about the military capabilities of better batteries produced in bulk for a low price.
            Drones with longer ranges, extended loiter times and that can carry larger payloads have proven to be more cost-effective against Soviet vintage armor than even the A-10.

            There is no federal requirement that individuals buy anything, or do anything other than pay your fair share as a responsible citizen. Ending your dependence on subsidies by taking actions like generating your own energy is simply a fair suggestion any Free Person should take seriously, and should be rewarded with a lower tax rate.

            Then state your position. Do you want the gov't to subsidize battery makers and phase out ICE cars through economic "nudging?" Because that's what it sounds like.
            Also A-10 go BRRRT and save lives, we use UAVs too but they have different uses. The Warthog was supposed to be canned over a decade ago, but it's still one of our best despite UAVs and drones being a thing.

            >Do you want the gov't to subsidize battery makers
            I'd prefer to not have subsidies, but as long as the fossil fuel industry is subsidized, and those subsidies cannot be ended that is a difficult case to make.
            Especially as long as Western battery manufacturing is not scaled up or competitive. In the short term, building out domestic production capability is a good expenditure.
            A tax credit available to the individual purchaser that still gives domestic manufacturing an advantage is a good way to do that.
            Or would you prefer China retain their advantage?

            >phase out ICE cars
            There is nothing that can stop the phase out of internal combustion engines.
            Working to end subsidies of fossil fuels simply puts the market back on a fair competitive footing.
            Look on the bright side, if the cost of fossil fuels reflects their true price, that creates a market opportunity for sustainable fuels.

            The sooner internal combustion engines running on ethanol become a quaint novelty for a rural minority instead of a daily necessity for urbanites the better.
            There are no federal laws against personal ownership or operation of horses, or steam engines, or stirling engines, or jet cars, or anything else we're interested in here.
            There is no reason to think internal combustion cars won't be exactly the same. Car enthusiasts into retro-tech are too small a minority to be worth restricting.

        I'm one of those "anti-EV" shills that always posts in these threads, and have done so for years.
        I'm not anti-EV, I just don't want ICE cars banned over hopes and dreams that EVs will save the ecosystem.
        I'm not trying to ban EVs, I'm trying to stop EVgays from banning ICE.

    They'll never stop coping, clearly they're putting out the fire wrong, they should carry around some sort of massive containment to snuff out the oxygen to this thing, and be careful storing it too, because it might be on fire again.

      So as I understand it, you want every single fire dept. in every western nation to purchase brand new equipment specifically for fighting lithium fires? I'm not interested in paying for that when the government is already forking out subsidies to EVgays for purchases and EV companies for their factories. It's a fricking wasteful grift top to bottom.

      >The fact that you think this doesn’t happen all the fricking time in the fire and safety and health industries

      Your average local fire dept only has equipment on hand that think they'll need and even if something new comes up that requires new equipment, depending on local budgets it may take some considerable time to acquire it based on availibilty.

      Point is a fire dept that's stationed in a rural area may only be equipped for fighting rural related fires like grain silos, and won't have the equipment to fight say a fire at a high rise building in the city, and the inverse would be true. So the same thing goes for lithium fires, most depts are probably outfitted for diesel or gas fires, but likely wouldn't have proper equipment for lithium or metal fires cause, they never needed it in the first place.

      With time yeah this will change but so long as depts are funded by local taxes, and those taxes vary by the wealth of the local populace, yes you're going to have inconsistencies of firefighting ability.
