I'll start- I feel that electric motors/engines are a good start, but they aren't going to save us. The parts are more delicate and the batteries, though they certainly last longer than a tank of gas/petrol they still die with no current way to fix with minimal environmental effect. They simply wear away and must be completely replaced. I suppose a solar option could be considered, but there still needs to be a storage unit of some type or youd only be riding in the day time. Comes back to a throw-away battery that cant be fixed or easily recycled (yet). Mybthought is we really need to find an easily renewable flammable fuel alternative. I'm sorry but we arent gonna get all the fuel vehicles off the road anytime soon so there will always be a demand for fossil fuel, especially in poorer countries. A safe veggie or waste or SOMETHING based combustible compound that will work in an IC engine is what we should be focusing on creating in my opinion. That way we can continue to make use of the millions of vehicles already use on the planet. People in rural areas all over the world arent gonna jump on electric vehicles and just dump the IC vehicles... and then theres THAT trash issue if the world goes over completely to electric... billions of tons of metal all of a sudden must be dealt with... and millions of broken hearts who can no longer use the mopeds (cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc) they love. Is it perfect, no. Until we, as a species, completely give up assisted travel (lol no way) we will always generate waste that we need to figure put how to recycle, repurpose, etc. So yeah, my opinion and ideas- neither of which are original I'm sure. Does anyone know if there is any work being done in this area?
