While many look to electric cars to solve the current problems of our current dead dinosaur cars, there are a number of problems they don’t solve.
They won’t solve the tire dust/plastic problem. In fact, they’re heavier so they’re going to wear out tires and roads faster.
Every time I see a story about investing in EV stuff I ask myself what that money isn’t spent on public transit or building walkable cities? Canada is giving some EV battery manufacturer from Sweden $2.7 billion taxpayer dollars instead of investing in transit, or fixing our broken healthcare system or addressing home affordability.
This foreign manufacturer will make billions in profit over the coming years and pass on some small portion of that to the workers in one small area of the country.
