    With electric vehicles you do get the power instantly combined with fantastic acceleration, assuming that there is any life left in the batteries, compared to the internal combustion engine. Just watch an electric train accelerate out of a station compared to a diesel powered one.

    It amazes me how much the flatulence of cattle is said to damage the atmosphere. They've been on planet earth for thousands of years, happily munching grass, without causing a problem but now,all of a sudden, their digestion does appear a problem to some.

    IMHO its just a lot of wind, and some aspects of it are definately over egged, everybody stop breathing

    Every 50 ton tank will have to pull an attached trailer carrying 50 additional tons of Lithium batteries.

    and........................you wouldn't want the Lithiums taking a direct hit as it would be like an Atom bomb going off behind you!!
