Assuming it was possible to change all the ICE vehicles over to electric cars charged off the grid, wouldn’t this essentially just be shifting the location of the problem instead of any actual solution?
We have a problem of needing to generate a certain amount of energy to power private transport. Regardless of where this energy is consumed – at the petrol/gas station or off the electric grid – we still have to find a way to generate the energy, right?
I don’t see how converting to electric cars, even if it were possible, would actually solve anything, merely shift the location of the problem, to be dealt with at a slightly later date.
Getting people to use electric trains however is a workable solution.
He suggested that it is this transporation that is responsible for most of the fuel consumption and not private vehicular transport. I have not been able to locate statistics to substantiate this view, but if it is correct perhaps a way to have your cake and eat it to?
