“Since the three largest auto markets are already seeing falling combustion vehicle sales, is there any hope left for the internal combustion engine?
No. It’s firmly headed for the dustbin of history, and it is going to happen quickly. Most serious auto analysts (see here, and here, and here) think that 2018 may well have been the peak sales year for combustion vehicle sales globally, and the figures we’ve discussed above certainly support the idea.”
See Fossil Vehicle Sales Are Officially Now Decreasing In China, Europe and USIt’s what I believed would happen years ago, burning stuff to get from A to B is obsolete. It’s not right. It’s not efficient. It’s dirty. It’s expensive. EVs are the way to go. They are efficient, clean and inexpensive. Even the herd buying pickup trucks can’t roll back the tide and neither can the automakers who’s infrastructure has been built on burning stuff.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
