Infact, they only have final testing data from a whole 8 mice, gosh its so nice, the way they’re being so sure these things are safe.

AND at the same time they’re “de-authorizing” the old boosters, so even if you just got your last booster, you could be forced to get this one to stay up to date

  1. The EV tax credit – we complain when the government doesn’t encourage US made, and now complain that they do. We complained that most battery materials are from foreign sources and say we need to bring that to the US, until it is required. And yes, we do have mines and have more mines in development – but no, it isn’t enough. How many people know that previous EV tax incentives actually discouraged use of US made product (they capped how much could apply to any one company, and guess which maker topped out so their offerings no longer qualified – the US company).

    I don’t have a dog in this hunt, but just find it interesting that no matter what it does/encourages, people find fault – even taking an opposite position to what they once wanted. (This comment in no way is about you – you’re just providing links to various news).

    Of course it would be great to get government out of most things – but I don’t see that happening real soon.

    • Pretty much. The whole mess drives me nuts.

      Most people I talk to at work love the concept of battery powered everything. Given a free choice most would pick a battery unit over gas, even at the higher price, assuming the battery unit is capable of what they want. The thing is battery units AREN’T capable of everything, and while thats subject to change forcing the change before they CAN is going to cause problems.
