You're not even wrong here...

Never mind electrolysis (or catalyzed solar hydrolysis), I'm talking about 
storage, transport & delivery.  I'm not even mentioning the cost of PEM 
fuel cells, or the silliness of trying to throttle them like an engine.

"EVs are at least as polluting as ICEs" sounds a whole lot like "EVs are 
bad" to me.  As for their utility or value, you speak only for yourself. 

I want a 300# $6000 EV motorcycle that goes 200 miles at 70 MPH.  Some day 
that may exist, and if I'm extremely lucky, I might have a chance to help 
that happen.  Meantime, I don't gripe about the limits of existing 
(excellent) EV bikes or argue that EV bikes are pointless and bad.   

Wish I had time for this but glad I don't,
