this piece focusses on wheeled transport
but it is our complete industrial infrastructure that runs on fossil fuels…..and the ‘’oil party’’ depends on the base economics of the entire system — -you cannot remove oil powered transport and still expect to have industrial complexity, the oil industry cannot function on a non transport economic system
the ev cannot function outside a fossil fuelled environment.
if our industrial complexity is removed, then in general terms, we will have no employment to make wheeled transport necessary anyway
and even if full battery powered transport was feasible — -exactly where would the raw material come from?
big oil will certainly die — -but to fantasise about alternatives is a nonsense
