If That Tesla Battery Could Talk

Replacing combustion with combustibility doesn’t make EV batteries as clean or green as is claimed.

Science Matters

Let’s imagine what an EV battery could tell us about its reality. A short story.  H/T Graeme Weber

The packed auditorium was abuzz; nobody seemed to know what to expect. The only hint was a large aluminum block sitting on a sturdy table on the stage.

When the crowd settled down, a scholarly-looking man walked out and put his hand on the shiny block, “Good evening,” he said, “I am here to introduce NMC532-X,” and he patted the block, “we call him NM for short,” and the man smiled proudly. “NM is a typical electric vehicle (EV) car battery in every way except one; we programmed him to send signals of the internal movements of his electrons when charging, discharging, and in several other conditions. We wanted to know what it feels like to be a battery. We don’t know how it happened, but NM began to talk after we…

    Burn gas to make electricity to charge batteries. Or put the gas in the car….

    Compare this to the embedded cost of flying fresh fruit in from So America or the Pacific rim.

    And then…

    Start preparing the soil. If the BBC (& the assorted Green Organisations who tell them what to say) are correct Britain will have a tropical climate real soon.
    On the other hand if they are exaggerating (perish the thought) you will need a very large Greenhouse (preferently double glazed) with auxilary heating in your backyard. Recoup the expense by selling rights to sit inside on cold days.
    ONE TIP. Don’t use CO2 inside the double glazing thinking it will “trap the heat”. It actually increases heat loss slightly.

    If it c ould talk, would anyone be listening and take note ? Naw …. too busy guffawing asusual.
    and who is charging it up this now ? SOLAR14% for a few hours before Moonrise, Wind 4% – a joke. 97% of Idiots can see that for themselves.

    oldbrew, to answer your question, not really if it is a large battery. The batteries they are talking about need to have ALL free oxygen excluded, like dropping them in a large tank of water as some fire fighters found out when they had a e-car battery fire to put out.

    Something Hot from Paris.
    Dozens of electric buses will be taken off the streets of Paris temporarily “as a precaution” after two of the vehicles caught fire, public transport operator RATP {La Régie autonome des transports parisiens} said on Friday.
