https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-44798135 Annoying seeking yet again to divide the country implying young people are progressive and forward thinking and older are set in their ways. Sometimes it may be true but there is also an argument that age brings experience and experience leads to people seeing things in greys rather than black and white. I love the 'perceptions' sub heading about electric cars. No they are NOT perceptions they are facts. They ARE too expensive, Range totally inadequate -They are OK in towns and suburbs but totally inadequate for X country journeys and rural dwellings. "30 minutes in petrol stations with fast charging to 80%" Wow so you have to queue and sit for 30 minutes so you can get another 100 miles Wow That is alright then !!! Many rural homes have limited supply (takes 8-12 hours to charge so if battery is low and you get in at say 8 pm, your battery is low you cannot go out at night AND set off early if you have a long drive ahead next morning . Range is a myth. Physics dictates that in very cold weather battery efficiency plummets and the double whammy is you use your heater in the car further depleting the charge and range. Disposal/ replacement of of batteries expensive and environmentally ungfriendly as is raping the world particularly 3rd word countries of rare minerals to make them in the first place . Hybrids or hydrogen fine. The former allows electric in built up areas where pollution is evident but in open countryside switch to IC engines to give sufficient range (and recharge batteries at same time. Pure electric car propaganda is leading us up a blind alley. As regards, massive savings. Yeah right!! As soon as the revenue from fossil fuels falls and also the added cost of more power stations needed the Govts will simply tax the drivers at the charging points per KwH. Businesses will also need to recoup the massive cost of the charge points and infrastructure anyway. Some Media like this BBC journo are unquestioningly spouting propaganda and ignoring the overwhelming negatives.
