    In other words, this too is completely wrong.

    But at least you're batting 1.000

    The largest DOE loan directly related to electric/hybrid cars was $440M.

    None of those companies were going under without $440M.

    And you're hitting ZERO, but lets talk about the greatness of electric cars, you seem to think that they have no impact on anything else, or you'd at least admit that there are several other very related parts to the equation of electric cars made by Tesla et al..

    Where the parts come from, how expensive are they, are the really green technologies, who's buying them, what's the cost, how does it effect the power-grid... Where does that power come from... None of this relates to Tesla in your narrow little world.

    I said none of these things, please stop putting words in my mouth.

    I also said none of this. Where I've refuted is showing where it's false or where it similarly impacts combustion vehicles (and is therefore a moot argument).

    Any more words you want to put in my mouth here or are we good?

    It's all implied by you.

    Inferred != implied, Rick.

    It's weird, but you'd think the person who wrote this - in this very thread - would be conscious of drawing unsupported inferences:

    But yet ...

    You implied. But, I'm not arguing with you about that fact anymore.

    I appreciate that, considering I said (nor implied) any of it and none if it is true.

    Now you're just playing games. You know I've posted several links to support my statements about Electric cars, their true value, and cost to the environment. Plus the political angle... that is very much a part of the electric car feasibility equation.

    I didn't say otherwise.

    I'm talking about drawing inferences where they do not exist. Keep up, Rick.

    What's your take on electric vehicles, cost, demand et al.?

    I've said this several times in the thread. Demand is growing, cost is decreasing, they're very close to being viable nation-wide.

    Moore's Law, my friend. Long-term, electric wins.

    I believe it will eventually win too. But, I'd like to see Tesla's S model sell for $35,000. :happy:

    If gas is ever $1.50, we'll either have MUCH bigger problems, or we'd have found a viable replacement.
