    Well, at this time, the primary fuel of stationary powerplants, while the latter more efficient, the former still gets burned. But the means of combustion is less hampered by metal-against-metal friction, and they are better able to harness the heat that is released and convert that to additional mechanical (and then electrical) energy. Burn baby burn.

    Someone made an earlier post stating an arrest of Trevor Milton trying to flee the country, which I see has now been deleted. That statement was untrue. I'll have to look at captures later to see who did.

    this pinko commie thinks we should nationalize r&d and implementation and installation of a modern solar and wind powered grid

    eff the fossil fuel capitalists

    during this time of increased economic and employment uncertainty we should view this as both a short and long term stimulus program

    Perhaps so. I have to say that the styling seems to have been created to get as much attention from the motoring public as possible, and its been wildly successful in doing that. Thats a success in itself.

    Well Paul, I hope the whole controversy turns out to be a tempest in a teapot. I’m not sold on electric cars/trucks (I think cars/trucks themselves are the problem, not the energy source), but since they seem to be the thing, the more companies working in the field the better.

    It was not sarcasm it was just the truth that he posted it.

    Why did he post that? I don't know.
    Ask him.
