Getting out while the getting is good - WA State

| No Comments

Spiraling into lunacy - from NBC News:

Washington state plans to ban most non-electric vehicles by 2030
Washington state plans to ban most non-electric vehicles by 2030, according to a newly signed bill by Gov. Jay Inslee.

The bill says that all vehicles of the model year 2030 or later that are sold, purchased, or registered in the state must be electric.

"On or before December 31, 2023, the interagency electric vehicle coordinating council ... shall complete a scoping plan for achieving the 2030 target," it reads.

Full bill is here: SB 5974 - 2021-22 Addressing transportation resources

Slight problem - what are we going to use to charge the batteries?  Moonbeams? WA State is running out of electricity as it is. Another problem is vehicle range.  E-cars may be fine for tootling around Seattle but try to take them any distance and you run into the hard limits of physics. One pound of gasoline holds about the same energy as 15 pounds of Lithium Batteries. Try to improve the range and you increase the weight.  A never-ending spiral.

So glad I am outta here this year.  Looking forward to the move.
