Hello!

Hi! Did you know that humans consume over 85 million barrels of oil every day? Where are we getting these barrels, and will we ever get over our dependency on barrels?

Do you think we'll ever ween ourselves off oil, or will we always crave its sweet taste and lubricating properties? I would like a car that runs on old eggs or maybe one that harnesses the power of yelling.

What do you think will happen?

Sorry, but I have to go now. Bye bye!

Part of the problem is that the electric car was killed in 2001 :-[ I think all people should watch Who Killed The Electric Car?, maybe the people can try to get the EVs back to the production line and into people's hands.
Nope I think were screwed atleast for the next 10 years. We are too dependent on gas I hope people get fed up enough to figure out alternate sources for energy.

It had nothing to do with the economy... It was all about oil being profitable and EVs costing less to be fixed which meant that the companies wouldn't get the millions from consumers for repairing the cars.

We could use tin cans, but then the number would be very high and look scary gonk

An electric car won't help the environment if you have to charge it from your home that is powered by a natural gas/coal/petro. power plant neutral That and how to properly recycle the batteries in those electrics matter as well.

I would hope using hydrogen would work. It's abundant, doesn't pollute but sadly isn't that efficient yet (last time I checked anyway).
