Fwd: Switching to electric cars. . . or not

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: John H

All of those of you who believe that the adoption of electric vehicles will somehow save the environment and prevent further global warming, should give close attention to the two attached articles.  The second also nicely explains why neoliberal capitalism can never operate in socially useful manner.  I would add to the information in the articles that very few commentators mention the major secondary problem related to the switch to electric vehicles, that is the fragility of the nation's electrical grid; which, the last time I can recall seeing requires at least 3 trillion dollars to bring it up to reliably service near-term needs which do not include a massive switch to EVs.
