    Joe Biden .....
    He just said no more New Petrol Car's ( & I'd say Bikes too ) In ten years. so this is not good new's for most of us.
    He also Quoted the number of charging stations they would put in. And China quick to start building electric car's & so on.
    All well & good but no mention of what plans they have in place, to dispose of all the Battery when they hit maximum service life. that's going to be a real problem, for future generation's.
    It will be interesting what happens here.

    The switch to EV's will be a very gradual process. Currently they're about 2% of the market.  Even if they grow 2% more every year over the next 10 years (which won't happen), you'd still only be talking about 22%.  No need to panic.  Petrol vehicles will still be the norm for at least the next 20 years.  There's some great videos on Youtube by the Auto Expert guy, he gives lots of convincing stats as to why EV's will take a long time to take over.  I just ordered a new diesel 4WD, there was nothing that comes close in the EV space.

    we were just discussing lithium batteries at our cfa station this morning,when they o/heat and /or fail they burn with very intense heat and create suppression issues,especially in larger batteries.

    Agree. And little point moving to evs any faster in places where main source of electricity is coal fired anyway. 

    Plus Biden has four years. Republicans might get back in if they have somebody half normal again to drive their policies

    Biden will be a two term president.  Most presidents are.  Traitor Trump has ruined any chance the republicans had.  He lost the house in 2018, he lost the presidency in 2020 as a "one term wonder", and he lost the senate in 2020.  Wonder if his fans are sick of winning yet?
