Well, in our case it comes out of a socket in the wall. I’ll let B.C. hydro figure out the rest. They don’t seem to be too worried at this point. Cheap like borscht.

I agree. They are building solar farms and wind turbine farms as fast as they can. And simultaneously shutting down dirty and inefficient fossil fuel power plants. There will be a huge increase in capacity in ten years. EV battery and charging technology is improving rapidly. Super fast charging stations can now charge at the rate of 20 miles per minute. That’s 200 miles in 10 minutes. About the time to go use the restroom and grab a snack.

In spite of the deniers, it is going to happen.

No problem. There's still going to be a need for large vehicles capable of traveling long distance in areas where there's not a recharging station on every corner. I'll deal with them.

These fools are not selling vehicles, they're farming the government for every cent the politicians are willing to give them through subsidies, grants and funding useless research. When there's really a breakthrough in the field people will naturally use it WITHOUT being forced into it because idiot, graft taking, lying politicians are buying their votes with more give away's.

If this actually happens, you probably won't want a gas or diesel RV anyway since you won't be able to find a gas station -- gas stations are barely profitable now, and are on the decline in the USA.

But that article is incomplete, it omitted one key part of the announcement which means that this won't actually affect (most) RV's:

Quote:

The move toward ending tailpipe emissions will affect GM’s passenger cars and light-duty trucks — SUVs such as the Yukon, as well as vans and minivans and some pickup trucks, such as the Silverado, a company spokeswoman said.

But its heavy-duty vehicles — box trucks, tractor trailers, utility trucks and some heavy pickup trucks — will continue to run on gasoline, the company said.


And they left some wiggle room:

Quote:

GM’s statement also left some wiggle room in continuing internal-combustion engines, critics noted. The company did not rule out using carbon offsets or credits “if absolutely necessary” to reach its goal of eliminating tailpipe emissions. That means GM could invest in programs that remove carbon dioxide from the air, such as tree planting, and still sell some gasoline-powered vehicles.

I’ll take a 2035 Duramax. And if I’m lucky, I’ll outlive it, if not, by then my wheelchair will have a [email protected] good battery!
