We heard the same dire warning from the rust belt wrt silicon valley techs upsetting the world order in the '80s.
If one worries over EV, AI will be the nightmare! :lol:

Re: Electric cars are NOT as green as you think (and some are worse polluters than petrol!

From a physics standpoint, EV cars are much more energy efficient. If you start out with the same amount of energy, say 1 gallon of gasoline equivalent to 33.4KWh of electrical charge. The ICE car will utilize only 19% of the energy to power the wheels, wasting the rest as heat and friction. While t...
