        Just gonna point out that Big Beef has pretty much successfully psy-opped everyone into hating almonds more. A TON of feed for cows and horses is grown in worthless-for-farming California land, with water bought at stupidly cheap rates. Ideally we'd move production of both elsewher like the midwest, and cut down on making way too much fricking corn there.

      ICE fires don't take much water to put out if you catch them early enough. You could put a small one out with a bucket of water or a garden hose. You're not doing that with a single 18650 let alone 6000 of them.

      ICE fires are just regular fires. EV fires are like 10,000 consecutive smaller fires that start back to back and we know this and we train firefighters to simply isolate the fire and let it burn itself down because even tossing 36000 gallons at it will only speed up the process slightly. So why these morons did it is anyone's guess

    EV fires, while clearly rare, are significantly worse than ICE fires. They burn forever and the risk is higher that they'll catch the surroundings (even homes) on fire.
    It takes more than an entire tanker of water to put them out... I'd like to see you nocarz try and put out an EV fire.

          When the alternative is taxing *everybody* just for overpriced firefighting equipment and training, a tax on EV registrations is less socialist.

          Not disputing the claim.
          But it’s hard to take either of those numbers seriously because.
          >the amount of ice cars on the road is higher
          >theres 30 year junkers still on the road
          >Evs are at the most 15 years old
          >they were a niche product to start with meaning there we way less of them out there
          the important number would be fires per cars on the road and getting a percent out of that to get an accurate representation. Ice cars catch fire as much as anything but do they catch as often as EVs do? We won’t know with total number per year comparison.

            the reason for that data is they count a fire of any severity as a car fire. 99.999% of gas powered car fires are benign and nothing happens. but if an EV catches fire it's always catastrophic. more people die in EV fires per year than there are EV fires in total. they're something like 400x more deadly than gas car fires.

            I understand there are nuances to this. But I feel fired per cars on the road are a better representation of the reality than total numbers. We could then go down the rabbit hole of what kind of fire but we have to draw lines somewhere to know what we’re dealing with.
            I would consider 20 fires per year to not say anything. It could be a lot it may not be that bad depending on the scale.

            yeah i can link them when i'm back on my pc but you can look it up yourself, just look at car fire fatalities for gas vs ev and compare that to numbers of fires total for each. ev fires are exponentially more deadly due to the rate of the burn. gas cars when they do catch don't engulf you in a matter of seconds so you have plenty of time to get out to safety. then of course evs also have the ability to combust during charging when you're not even driving them which can lead to things like raging house fires and parking garages and cargo ships burning down.

            There's over 600 deaths per year in the USA from all car fires on highways alone. ICEV fires are much more deadly in general since. BEVs I can't find any statistics on their deaths, probably because they're non existant. Their design is just far less prone to fire.

            said 170,000 car fires per year. 600/170000 is 3 deaths per thousand.

            said 20 ev fires. there have been over 20 deaths per year from those fires. that means you're almost 400x more likely to die in an ev fire than a gas car fire which is my entire point.

            and the reason there are much fewer ev fires is because there are much fewer evs, as they make up less than 1% of all cars on the road, and are all much newer than gas cars on average and vehicle age plays a huge role in car fires.

    So I just attempted to look for alternatives, and it seems like the following are options:
    If the vehicle is not in danger of igniting anything else: Straight up just let it burn. Rather than waste thousands of gallons and hours of time/manpower, let it burn itself out in one hour, then follow "quarantine" procedures such as not allowing the wheels to roll while towing the wreck, and isolating in in the junkyard for 2-3 weeks.
    If someone catches it early: some cars now have a fireman's access hatch that basically lets them drown the battery by coupling the hose right to it. I REALLY like this one if it were possible to standardize, you could have ports on the sides and back of the vehicle. The only problem is we live in a such a shitty society that people would doubtlessly find ways to break them open and destroy people's batteries just for the hell of it.
    Finally, water at first then bury the thing in sand. I don't think even a couple dump trucks would have enough to really bury a car completely, but could be a good solution for scooters/motorcycles. Would also be relatively easy to add to a fire department's fleet.

      The lithium is already on fire, it's not going to magically not be on fire if they let it burn, so they spray it with water to cool the fire so it doesn't destroy the road and because it's all they have since they're horrifyingly underfunded.

      Just gonna point out that electric car batteries are not pure lithium, but a compound such as lithium-iron or lithium-obalt etc, so you're not actually getting the reaction that you see when you drop a chunk of lithium in a cup of water.

    >Using water on a lithium fire
    I get using water to keep the road from melting, but that's not how you extinguish one of those burns. Fire departments (even the broke ones) need to start investing in having stuff like F500 foam on hand and ready to go.

      Normally a regular extinguishers foam not effective against lithium ion chemical reaction.

    At what point do those knuckle dragging fireman think "hey maybe water isn't putting this fire out" and try something else or just let it burn out by itself. Maybe use one of those old timey fire grenades, or maybe like a giant fire blanket or something. Nope they just uselessly spray water at it.

      Probably at the point where they realize they have absolutely nothing to put it out and cant just let a lithium fire stay burning on the highway

    Wait until you find out how much water is used in the production of fossil fuels.

    okay but I literally drove my polestar 2 into a street light pole at highway speeds after falling asleep and it didn't catch on fire and explode so all this is fear mongering and EVs are still better than ICEVs
