brak is on a distinguished road
power density of combustible fuels is orders of magnitude higher than that of electric batteries we have today. until fuel cells arrive - all this electric stuff is a total bs. look, on one hand everyone runs around wondering how to reduce electric use so that running a tiny pathetic refrigerator for a day does not kill batteries. and yet someone can seriously propose pushing the entire boat with this? This is just ridiculous, no other words for it.
