So the batteries in your EV's last forever? Interesting... all the
articles I have seen say otherwise. Sure electricity can be created,
but the only responsible way to create it is with sustainable means
and no measure of sustainable means can accommodate todays habits for
energy consumption in a 6.5 billion person population. Hardly a moot

When did I say I drive 30 miles to work? I work at home therefore I
use ZERO energy beyond dragging my butt out of bed. The point you
missed was thats it's important to make people (and companies) aware
that working from home is a HUGE saving in energy for our
population. In that scenario they just removed a HUGE cost of energy
use even more than any EV can touch for someone still commuting to
work. Oh and don't forget the toxic emissions for the natural gas
burned to create the electricity to fuel your EV - again you are
mistaken to think you have NO toxic emissions when using your EV.
