I remember reading about a revolutionary new battery tech that would do a lot towards making the ev a better alternative… the key idea was to have a gaseous medium on the inside of the battery rather than a liquid or even what you might consider as a plasma. This would result in tremendous weight savings, yadda yadda yadda. The only thing is that they can’t seem to get the gas medium if I remember correctly either to maintain a charge, or to hold a significant amount of it… not sure which, but there you go.
Each alternative of energy whether green or non green, has it’s own demerits. Wind farms chop up a lot of birds, and some people don’t like the looks of them (I think they are kind of cool)
Solar would be better positioned in space with some sort of means of conveying the electrical power down to earth.
Hydro power often changes the local topography around in ways not easily imagined or prepared for.
Coal, we all know about that.
Natural gas, is a finite resource.
Nuclear is all well and good, but you get the not in my backyard scenario.
That all being said, there is nothing wrong with trying to pursue greener options as long as it is thought out well, and not implemented as a one and done, but more so like the internal combustion gasoline engine has evolved over time to become more efficient and powerful and dare I even say it more friendly to the environment…
