#Auto #emissions *could* have dropped by 30%, but SUVs ruined it for everyone: Report
From 2010 to 2022, if vehicles had stayed the same size and the bloated #SUV trend had never happened, carbon emissions could have been reduced by more than 30%, according to a report from the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI). Instead, automotive emissions only dropped 4.2%, essentially undoing all the good benefits of #electricvehicles.

"The struggle to protect #PeeheeMuhuh, #ThackerPass, from lithium mine links the #global struggles of uncontacted #Indonesians battling #nickel mining, child slaves in #Congo's #cobalt mines, and the peoples' battles against lithium mining in #Serbia and #Argentina. They are all battling the greenwashing of the false solution of #electricvehicles for #ClimateChange.
"The desecration of the sacred Paiute Massacre site by #LithiumAmericas of Canada is proceeding because federal laws do not protect massacre sites. Further, a man camp of lithium miners threatens the rural communities of #FortMcDermitt Paiute #Shoshone Nation, and the town of #Winnemucca with crime, specifically sex trafficking.
"Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, #RenoSparks Indian Colony Chairman Arlan Melendez called for a new mobilization of #PeacefulProtests that will bring awareness to the public about the ongoing desecration to the sacred place and the damage to the #environment. He called for support from #SouthDakota and elsewhere to bring this desecration to the forefront.
"'We lost the lawsuit because the law favors #mining, especially in this state,' Chaimrnan Melendez said.
'Without water, there is no life,' said Dean Barlese, #PyramidLakePaiute, who offered the opening traditional prayer honoring all created things, all sacred creation. 'We're teaching our young people these prayer songs.'
"'Our songs are still out there on the land.'
"Chairman Melendez said they are concerned about the crime that the mine will bring to Fort McDermitt region, in a rural area, including man camps, especially with the concern for missing and murdered women.
The lithium boom is like the gold rush, the whole state has lithium deposits, and #Nevada's 28 bands and tribes are sure to be affected. Already, sacred sites are being desecrated by lithium mining.
Chairman Melendez said the strategy is to mobilize tribes to speak with a louder voice so that the people will understand the devastation."

"The tipping point report also looked at what it called “positive #TippingPoints”, such as the plummeting price of #RenewableEnergy and the growth in sales of #ElectricVehicles. It found that such shifts do not happen by themselves but need to be enabled by stimulating innovation, shaping markets, regulating business, and educating and mobilising the public."

To follow up on Transport Evolved's video, a new report from the National Automobile Dealer Association (NADA) says that in the past 11 months of 2023, there were over 1 million EVs sold in the US. That's an increase of 50.7% year-over-year. Amazing!
EV demand is strong. People want EVs. We just need EVs that are affordable for the masses, not just for those who can afford an EV priced at $40K or more.
Transport Evolved (@show) has a new video out going over whether EV sales are dropping.
The TL;DW: No, EV sales are not dropping but there are certainly headwinds that are impacting people's ability to buy an EV. Demand remain strong nonetheless.
Nikki (@Aminorjourney) and the TE team did a great job. Worth watching.

“Despite the scapegoating of #EVs, global momentum, spurred by concerns about the consequences of continuing to burn #fossilfuels, is still moving in the direction of battery electrics”

Legacy auto is screwed
A very long overdo #introduction post. Hello! I'm Zach. My primary interests are #SDR, #DSP, #FPGA design, and #GPU computing. I've been doing those for about 16 years, and constantly find holes in my knowledge... so that's fun. In real life I like #cycling and have a growing interest in #solarenergy and #ElectricVehicles. Given infinite time, I'd like to learn #CAD to justify this 3d printer I bought, as well as the infrastructure that goes into making cloud computing work. Feel free to say hi!
Many people, including the environmentally conscious, are hesitant to buy electric vehicles due to concerns about their environmental impact compared to hybrid and gasoline cars. However, these concerns overlook the rapid advancements in electric vehicle technology and underestimate the environmental drawbacks of gas-powered vehicles. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/11/24/opinion/electric-vehicle-tesla-hybrid.html

We can't afford to buy a #car until the old one is beyond repair. Affordable #electricvehicles & the extra for a #car #chargingpoint aren't available. Choice is for the wealthy.
It's not the only issue though. #Electricity for them isn't green & batteries are #toxic & exploiting miners in #DevelopingCoutries. Are we being pushed out of the #climate frying pan & into a #pollution fire? There are solutions but #Governments need to fund them not #oil & #gas production.
Mazda, who somehow managed to produce a worse EV than the original Gen 1 leaf and sold approximately 6 of them in the USA have decided that EVs are not taking off.
Tesla though are doing fine. Because they only make EVs they have to make good ones. Rivian also doing fine. As are polestar.
The Chinese hoard cant compete due to market protections.

“Study determines the astronomical true cost of electric vehicle ownership”
Said study is from “a conservative think tank that according to 2012 tax filings was funded predominantly by Exxon Mobil, Chevron and the Koch brothers.
Why am I not astronomically surprised? 🙄
Electric vehicle battery prices are falling faster than expected https://www.goldmansachs.com/intelligence/pages/electric-vehicle-battery-prices-falling.html
If I were ever planning on buying a new car, something like this would be at the top of my list. It is specifically designed to help in disasters, like the ones caused by all the other cars that have heated the earth!
Anyway, I love my #EV. I'm happy to have not been to a gas station in 7 years. I like having a giant battery in my basement for emergencies. I still dream of the promise of the #Leaf as #EmergencyPreparedness backup.
But widespread adoption has barriers at this time.
https://i.redd.it/3trtchlp42121.jpg [this links to an diagram of how Nissan Energy Share car charging could feed back into homes or businesses or feed to the grid to stabilize it.]
But those things are not possible for everyone and everything at this time. I simply cannot bike to places that I need to go. And they are not served by transit, and probably won't be in my lifetime.
#WarOnCars is sometimes misguided on this front.
I love this car. It's quiet. It requires zero maintenance. We joke on the leaf boards that our biggest expense is washer fluid.
But it's hard to convince my friends that these are ready when they hear about how I can't get to some event or the problems I've had charging. And I've had them all. Including terrible siting of EV chargers. Even this one.
Today is the 7th anniversary of my #NissanLeaf. We are getting a fresh charge at a public charging station this morning, as I don't have my own home charger.
As an early adopter, I have been trying to use my knowledge to advocate for the #ElectricVehicles transition. I'm sorry to say we still aren't ready...
Wall Street Journal's Joanna Stern (@joannastern) does a great job explaining the current state of EV charging in America. Basically, not great. That's a big problem for EV adoption as many people are concerned about range anxiety and where and how to charge. There's a lot of work to do.
Seeing more and more automotive companies that manufacture EVs make claims that they are going to release a sub-$25K mass market EV "soon". I really hope they come through. 2025 appears to be the year when these lower cost EVs begin to enter the market. We'll see.
Sigh. Toyota pushing hydrogen uphill like they are Sisyphus or something.
Its never going to be a thing for road transport. Its horribly inefficient, bulky and expensive and already long surpassed by BEVs

My 1 year old son has just started making noises when he plays with cars. He doesn’t say “brrrrm” or similar, he says “eeeee”. We own electric cars.
Think of it, a future where cars, buses, trucks, tractors go “eeeee” instead of “brrrrrm” in the minds of children.
Symbolic moment: The Munich factory of BMW (Bavarian Motor Works, translated) just produced its last fossil fuel car, after 60 years. Only EVs now.
(The company will continue to produce fossil cars elsewhere, for now)

The all-electric VanHool motorcoaches used on the Amtrak Cascades connecting bus service between Seattle and Bellingham, which can do the nearly 200-mile round-trip on a single charge, are super quiet and comfy.
Have you considered simply *not driving*?
Seriously; if you need to move your body dozens of miles at 60mph every day you are going to boil the oceans one way or the other.
If you want to use less energy you have to do less things. You can't change thermodynamics, just by buying a more expensive car.
Vry important article on how the market-supremacist way we approach #ClimateChange solutions hurts us all.
"Although the EV rush has reduced tailpipe emissions, it has also entrenched car dependence, which inflicts other kinds of damage."
Think about how #Climate solutions face a crowding-out effect: solutions favored by corporations, like #ElectricVehicles can be a substitute for more transformative change like rethinking travel & transit infrastructure.
As we move beyond the internal combustion engine & engineer a transfer to #electricvehicles, the #pollution caused by the particles shed by #tyres is going to become more obvious as an #emissions & #health issue.
Already regulatory interventions are being considered on both sides of the Atlantic & tyre manufactures are looking (ahead of new laws) to mitigate particulate shedding from contact with the road.
This is likely to be a growing issue... one result: even more expensive tyres?
E.g.: Lifecycle EV emissions break even with those of gas cars at only 16,000 miles or less. Beyond that the climate wins all the way.
But there is a whole myth making machine that is trying to make. you think otherwise. Get the fact check here:
Chevrolet Blazer EV Is the 2024 MotorTrend SUV of the Year
"But of any EV we've experienced, the Blazer EV projects a message more strongly than almost any other: You can do this."
Congrats to the Chevrolet team! Great to see customers having more choice when it comes to picking a quality EV.
Fascinating article on the (long) history of electric vehicles. Did you know that by 1900, a third of all cars on the road in the US were electric? (When he was shot in 1901, President McKinley was taken to hospital in an electric ambulance).
