OK - the @sun published a comment piece by Ross Clark today.

It made a couple of statements about #ElectricCars that aren't quite right - so here's a thread that offers come corrections. Image
ok, first up, this statement: "An electric current electricity prices, will cost you more to run even before you take into account the fact that electric cars are very lightly taxed in comparison".

Well, not really, here's why...
70% of drivers have access to off-street parking – this enables the majority of the UK’s drivers to access the cheap EV charging tariffs provided by a number of energy suppliers

Eg - @OctopusEV's Intelligent Tariff allows people to charge their EVs for as little as 7.5p/kWh

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

We know what the #transport contribution to CO2 emissions are - 19.5% of emissions. it's the solutions we need now. Stuffing towns with #electriccars is not a solution, it just means cleaner traffic jams. @CathMurphyTD Image
Crucial missing piece of capital region's transport infrastructure is the 3.2 miles of #Dart underground tunnel that links all rail stations. Talked about for decades never built. Time to build now-low interest for capital borrowing & employment generation #Dublin @CathMurphyTD
#DartUnderground would be gamechanger. Would quadruple no. of passenger journeys by rail and free up road surface for #cycling lanes and link up outer suburbs and commuting counties - #Kildare #Meath #Wicklow

#NovaScotia has dozens of #manganese occurrences and had a bunch of mines in the 1800s and early 1900s, mostly along the south shore of the #BayofFundy.
Read this thread for details:

#nspoli @EastHantsChambr @EastHantsNS @KeithIrvingNS @JohnLohrMLA @mmillershubie @scottbrison ImageImage
For example, the Tennycape #manganese deposit (#HantsCounty, #NovaScotia) was discovered in 1861 and manganese was extracted from boulders overlying the bedrock in 1862.

#nspoli #NS #bayoffundy #hants Image
The actual Tennycape Mine opened in 1882 and became the largest official #manganese producer in #NovaScotia, with an estimated 4000 tons of ore reportedly extracted between 1880-1900.

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

Thanks to @turo I'm renting a #TeslaModel3 during my visit to Silicon Valley - certainly a different experience than traditional #carrental agencies #future #zeroemission #electriccars
Gone to Tesla's HQ in Fremont, California to try the supercharging there. It's supposed to be much faster than before.
I had hoped the Model 3 would charge at the new rate but it didn't happen
