Re: Why EV penetration will be slow and limited

Great post, I am with you from the technical and cost/benefit points.  However, these issues are secondary, as the whole EV process is mainly politically driven with some people buying status toys (like luxury cars or expensive watch) or following the trend. 

 

True believers or politicians (most are lawyers or have liberal art education) will not be stopped due to some peculiar technical considerations like math & physics.  We do not need any examples, but I just mention nuclear industry, fuel reprocessing, environmental impact process, pipelines, oil by train, resistance to new transmission lines… They have multiple solutions in their toolbox to address all issues you listed, e.g., tax, regulate, ban, subsidies.  Do you remember “cash for clunkers”, so the government will buy all old EVs for some ridiculous amount.

I am a strong believer that the only way out is through “pain and suffering”, unfortunately.
