    Okay - so the electrics can be dangerous. Heck - got to live on the edge then don't we?

    Dang I've been looking at electric lawn mowers. No more screwing around with gas cans <img src="https://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/images/smilies/gr_grin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Cheesy" class="inlineimg" />
    I'll keep my diesel mower, thanks.

    Your mower must be a John Deere.

    Nope a New Holland. Green is over-priced.

    Wait and see what happens when widespread electric vehicle use meets widespread power outage.

    I'd guess that here in the south you'd start seeing Teslas with generators duct-taped on the trunk.

We just don't have the electric infrastructure in my opinion for all electric vehicles to make sense for most people.

    That said it is a chicken or the egg situation. The vehicles will drive infrastructure, but you need the vehicles to make the infrastructure make sense...
    I much more favor CNG vehicles over all electric. There's the ability to convert existing vehicles and tax credits could be made to encourage the vehicle conversion, along with home and commercial NG charging stations.
    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell
