I have absolutely no idea what this means. Discontinuing internal combustion is a requirement for the world's continued existence. Autonomous EV's are a great idea but I don't see that being feasible for a little while yet.

Killing private car ownership--that's really not possible in places like America, where we pretty much refined urban sprawl into an art form. I'd take mass transit (coronavirus notwithstanding) in a heartbeat if it was

A) Not filled with crackheads
B) Available in my area
C) Comparable in travel time to driving

But any mass transit in my area is crackhead-filled and slow compared to just getting in my car and driving.

As for global "reset," I feel like I'm missing something here.

That's a rather harsh way of saying we can't go on like this. External combustion Okay then?

Ah gotcha. IDK man, to be perfectly honest my personal outlook on humanity is rather bleak, and I don't see us making things "better," ever. Too much human history to back up my point of view. At least in my opinion!

Things are always getting better and will continue to do so until it doesn't, likely catastrophically. Every measurable metric of human well-being has improved over the last 200 years, mostly thanks to exploiting fossil fuels.

The trick is to transition to our new forms of energy without upsetting that upward march.

People are simply too comfortable in their ideologies to work on those transitions. . . now.

I understand, it's a glass half-(empty)(full) situation. I think humanity itself is Okay and constantly improving but *something* is riding us like a pony.

The 1960s Sexual Revolution turned into Kindergarten Story Time.

Internet turned into a Panopticon.

I feel like humans in general are alright, but that "humanity" as a whole has turned to, and relied upon, completely sociopathic constructs to run and build things. That the heartless nature of the organization that humanity relies on and actively builds into is unsustainable and incompatible with long-term existence. The world is built on expansion and on easy access to unlimited resources, only we're past how far we can sustainably expand, and resources aren't unlimited.

That's pretty accurate.

The hippys were right, we need to get ourselves back to the Garden. Part of the problem is Fallacy of the Excluded Middle, or en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_dilemma.

"Business as usual" or no? What about we all live in tepees?* What about a little of that?**

Got tired of stopping to figure this out from the data my vehicle was giving me so I made a table. Also it shows just what a loser 120 volt charging is which is something few people seem to understand.

Interesting. But ? I don't understand why you posted it.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
