Yes another EV post but this one should be taken seriously as there is a fire risk with the batteries.

Tesla driver dies in horrible crash and the battery won’t stop burning

There is Teslas on the road who get into accidents and survive. Internal combustion engines (gas vehicles) do also catch fire some are defects others are from poor maintence and some are just freak fires.

EV batteries, lithium ion do not generally cause a fire or explode. Usually that happens due to defects, improper battery replacements or using an incorrect cord. EV batteries also store a ton more energy so recharging them would require an outlet that is capable of handling that sort of power.

However the biggest threat is that if the battery is punctured, the battery can explode. Tesla does use materials to protect the battery in an accident but they can still be punctured. Look up lithium battery explosions on YouTube and you’ll understand how dangerous these batteries can be.

Until they can come up with a safer method for a futuristic cleaner vehicle it’s best to stick with gas vehicles. An EV enthusiast will try to claim otherwise that they are safer but the fact the batteries reignite the fire they are a major hazard. Don’t let these people try to force you into buying an EV.

There are a few hybrids that use nickel metal batteries, these are far more safer. Whether they are good for vehicle usage is another story but avoid any vehicle using lithium ion batteries. Not only they are a fire hazard, the gas released from them are toxic.

I’m waiting on hydrogen that will work on existing internal combustion engines.

So another Democrat, Ocasio-Cortez with one of their ridiculous ideas is a green deal that forces Americans to give up gas, flying and cows. Yes, cows. Because of their farting. Oh these libtards way of thinking never ceases to amaze me. And no matter what they tell you Democrats all want the same thing, they wanted to ban gas cars for quite awhile. Look at what California is doing, pushing people to drive EVs. And this is funded by none other than taxpayers.

But Ocasio is looking to kill off the fossil fuel industry, vehicle part manufacturing and mechanics jobs all for zero emissions in 10 years. That’s a lot of jobs. Sure there will still be part manufacturing and mechanics jobs and part stores but think Circuit City, Target and Sears. All the retail stores are downsizing, reducing hours and like GM, many workers are left stranded without jobs or enough money. This will cause a chain reaction which will cause the worst depression America has faced. Sure Ocasio is willing to give money to those unwilling or can’t work due the changeover but where would that money come from?

Oh yeah, taxpayers! As if Americans are not already at their limits (government shutdown is apparent of this) they can’t afford to pay more because they already live paycheck to paycheck. But leave it to the Democrats to try something like this anyways. As for the green deal, these people need to dial it way down. They got this environmental problem blown way out of proportion and it’s got people panicking the sky is falling. Relax folks. The planet is ok. It’s the people who are the threat here and the threat is legalized theft of your money.

That’s not to say our pollution isn’t causing some problems. But it’ll take a very long time before we finally get off fossil fuels. You got people already pushing electric vehicles but wait what about Hydrogen Fuel Cells?

Why hydrogen isn’t gaining momentum?

Well that was a bit of information but some is blown out of proportion, like I’m not even sure if half of what they say is even true. Maybe I need to research this. Much of what hydrogen (or HFC) offers is a major improvement over gas and it offers some things like fast refueling and no battery to use the vehicle.  This can be used in existing gas vehicles with some modifications but it is possible. And there are some problems like the volatile nature of hydrogen and how to produce it. These were the only two things I could see a problem with a long with now there’s people who are against it in the name of “being able to charge at home”. This doesn’t account to the fact that EVs are worse than gas in the cold. Whether hydrogen is a debilitating problem or not in reality so is battery operated vehicles. I need some truth in the matter and so far electric is taking up more market share. But it’s not a viable replacement to gas. Hydrogen would be if all the problems could be addressed.
