Re: electric vehicles in chile

Ending oil takes power away from the Middle East and Russia. Not necessarily a bad thing given some of their governments. I am concerned about China but I don't see that the EV trend puts that much power to China. I don't know much about LPG but I got this from a quick google: "Based on independent ...

Re: electric vehicles in chile

Agree with you on the need for cheaper electric cars. I would agree with your point if we were talking about Tesla 5 years ago, or some less established start up today. But investing on Tesla, although still risky today, may not be the total crap shoot it was a few years ago. Lithium is in some ways...

Re: electric vehicles in chile

Electric vehicles will barely help cut CO2 emissions in Germany over the coming years, as the introduction of electric vehicles does not necessarily lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions from road traffic. Natural gas combustion engines are the ideal technology for transitioning to vehicles powered ...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

Interesting - 400 mile range for an electric SUV! The only electric SUV in Chile that I know of, the Mitsubishi Outlander, can do about 20-25 miles (it's a PHEV so you are back on regular gas after that distance unless you charge it again before you get home). A few notes of caution though: ---Small...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

Mem, I did some research about SUV safety also and there is some evidence that modern SUVs are safer. The main issue with SUVs, and the reason they only give a perceived but not actual safety advantage, is because any advantage gained by their robustness and large size, is counteracted by their high...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

I just saw a video on the BBC https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-asia-47914210/what-does-the-world-s-largest-single-building-airport-terminal-look-like about China building a massive new airport.

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

I am from the UK. The Guardian is left wing. Its bias mainly shows in the things in chooses to report on (rather than bias on those topics), for example more articles on feminism and climate change than right wing publications, and less on economy and trade issues. Apart from the selection bias on t...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

At46, China is the leader in solar power, wind power and electric cars in terms of total numbers because of its higher population. It’s also the world leader in coal, carbon emissions and polluted cities. You have to look at it on a per person basis. In total numbers for the whole country, China is ...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

Fraggle 092: Good point that China has managed to already have the same CO2 per person with lower $ per person, but this point can be countered by another point which is that China's current emissions include a lot of manufacturing activity to generate things for people in the UK and elsewhere, and ...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

"Consumer is responsible" is a excuse given by companies, true, but "companies are responsible" is an excuse given by people. If we keep making excuses and shifting the blame we are all in trouble. Most of the effects of the emissions of 2019 will occur in 2050 and 2100 or later. That is a problem b...
