  1. Alex Jones is many things... Controlled opposition, I don't think so. Having listened to quite a few shows, he seems to focus on plausible conspiracies and tends to stay away from aliens, lizard people, supernatural and the more outlandish 9/11 stuff. He is trying to bring to attract a large audience and the madder stuff is a complete switch off.
  2. Chinese New Year having an effect?
  3. Nice but not available until the end of the decade. Range and acceleration aren't even as good a top of the range tesla saloon you can buy today. The 800v 15 minute charge sounds good but I suspect other companies will be doing much better than that by 2020. Both my parents cars are coming to the end of their leases and he is actually considering an electric for his commuting workhorse.
  4. Just reading a BBC article on this. Not once do they say SDR but they do use the term "new world order" Which reminds me to cancel my license fee. The Chinese yuan is going global http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-34961012
  5. Sounds crazier than the flat earth stuff. You can buy yourself a camouflaged tin foil hat that looks like normal hats. http://www.lessemf.com/personal.html
  6. You probably live in a built up area and cant see the sky at night. I've seen quite a few UFOs in the North Highlands. http://youtu.be/Ix4DNH-CHic Good compilation of sightings... Pretty sure that at least 2 are drones and a couple are deliberate fakes.
  7. What about sattelites? How do they orbit the earth? We sometimes see them on clear nights. Do they use secret UFO tech to buzz around above us?
  8. What is on the underside of the disc? Why not a pedestal? If its a disc then gravity would allow you to walk over the edge and underneath. How does the disc not pull in upon itself and collapse into a spherical shape? How come all visible large objects in space are spheres?
  9. @Cointreau, i'm giving this flat earth stuff a bit of a chance and there is angle at which I can look at this and even give it an outside chance of being true. There are plenty of mad things that are possible or even likely but i'm giving the flat earth theory a 0.00000000000000000000000000000000001% chance. I think its more likely a false narrative being pushed to trap the curious in a dead end.
  10. ... (Bloody phone)... ...to distract the curious from looking into conspiracies with more merit. How high is this ice wall?
  11. I often get recommended flat earth stuff on youtube as I indulge in a lot of conspiracy stuff. I always imagined that it was a trap to distrac
  12. What happens at the edge of he disc? Say you had your own plane and just flew past the boundary?
  13. Buy yourself a telescope and observe the universe. If all the celestial bodies you can observe are round, would it not be likely that our planet is also round?
  14. Charges for charging vary all over the country. In Scotland most are pretty much free. Ecotricity Electric highway is free in England. I'm of the opinion that free is too cheap. As adoption increases charges will be needed to make the use of the infrastructure more efficient.
  15. Makes perfect sense on islands. On Lewis they have a good network for charging, same on Orkney. In the highlands we have a ring of brand new rapid chargers right around the coast, mabye 30 miles apart each. I'm not sure if the last few are operational yet as they are not on some of the compilation maps but I saw a local complaining about one in Scourie in my local paper as electric cars can "only travel 30 miles and take 12 hours to charge"... Or travel up to 350 miles and charge in 30 minutes (if you have the money) The charge points are a bit like caravan chargers. You can still plug in with a 3 pin but you need a proper charger installed if you want faster (included with some cars and free in scotland if you have an electro car)
  16. Theres millions who don't need to park on the street. Just a thought. Concept seems sound.
  17. So the sun doesn't always shine and the wind doesn't blow, some months theres less water for hydro. If there were enough electric cars plugged in they could absorb excess electricity instead of it being lost (for example when Germany exports leccy for free on sunny days) and could resupply the grid on still days, helping to even out the troughs and peaks and making it possible to go 100% renewable. Not so good for your gen1 leaf but no bother for tesla style ranges. Free market solution would be some nice charging software so your can would charge say to 80% and keep 20% to take free excess electricity and programmed to sell energy back to the grid when the grid is short.
  18. If you are worried about the battery degredation you only have to look at the reducing price of batteries per kwh of storage. In four years you may beable to replace like for like for a fraction of the current cost or have a major upgrade for todays price. Modern brushless Electric motors don't wear out like normal engines, they'll just need a bearing change at some point.
  19. Renault include a pickup service even if you run out of juice too.
  20. Varies depending on car. Normally you get a few miles after 0% followed by a reduced power mode, followed by total shut down to protect the batteries. The range dramatically increases at lower speeds so if you know you are stuck for charging you can limp a long way.
  21. Whats the nedc and real life range on the smart?
  22. The new smart ev's will have Renaults new r240 engine. Love the crz. Got 55mpg. Lovely manual gearbox. Beautiful machine. Not very pratical as no human can fit in the back seats. Bit of a compromise car, despite the amazing handling. Not that fast for a sporty thing but fast. Not that efficient for a hybrid, but pretty efficient.
  23. There is a leaf (made the news) thats done 100000 miles and still has 98% battery capacity. If the capacity drops below 75% they will be replaced.
