“There is no such thing as a limited attack ,drop one bomb on America and they class that as an act of war, what do think Syria wont ? all thats happening here is the oil is running out faster than the Americans thought and they need to secure more of the worlds resources ,Syria is in the way”

“Common denominatore =was it war , common answer was no ,there is a thing called dwell time ,no it dont mean people dwell on it it means its the catch up period in technology ,they are not riding camels and armed with lee Enfield,s any more they have up to date weapons and massive armies and the fight will be on their ground ,we are now in the time of what if ! what if they start dropping the american planes out of the skies or sink a ship ? what if Syria is just the pin in the grenade
for the mother of all wars ? America is broke the EU machine is cracking up and Britain is broke
the rich have robbed the world and we are heading for a mad Max society ,all of this will have 2015 stamped on it !”

“we are always told with technology that the price will come down when it goes into mass production ,however this is not true with the electric car or the batteries that go with it .

consider the power plant it has one moving part ,the piston engine on the other hand has hundreds of parts and different systems ,so take 2 cars same size and the electric one will cost 4 times the price of the piston one .

truth is 2005 was declared peak oil by the G8 and they said it was all down hill from there for the world markets , GM crushed all of their electric cars the last thing they needed was a car with one moving part !”

“The prices will continue to drop but it's also important to factor in other costs, including a 360 mile charge of around $10.80 for an electric vs. $60 for an electric. No more oil changes required. Many things can go wrong with that engine that has many parts to break and that adds up.”

“This is not true. Electric cars have fallen in price. Both Leaf and Volt recently announced price cuts. Battery costs have steadily fallen.

Three electric cars - the Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishiu MiEV, and Fortwo Smart Electric - can now be had for around $20,000. And all three will save a typical driver about $10,000 in fueling cost over five years of ownership.

A $20k car with $10k in savings is darn cheap transportation, provided you know how to do a little math.”

“"consider the power plant it has one moving part ,the piston engine on the other hand has hundreds of parts and different systems ,so take 2 cars same size and the electric one will cost 4 times the price of the piston one ."

Not trying to be a jerk but I see no logic supporting your statement. A system which has fewer parts will cost more to produce?”

“The law states 15% by the year 2025 ! yes and there is a good reason for that how many people are employed in making petrol cars and diesel vehicles ? how many people across the planet are making spare parts for vehicles ? how much revenue do you think the government would loose in terms of petrol and diesel taxes , vat on parts and services ,and then emission tests and then road taxes ,well all ot the above in terms of people making vehicles and parts runs into hundreds of thousands, as for the loss of money in business and that would run to the billions .

So dont expect the electric car to become mainstream any time soon as the government cant afford it ,it is destined to be come a low percentage item for years .”

“There were a helluva lot of carriage manufacturers that went into automobile manufacturing when the car became mainstream. Reference for one the Fisher Body Company. They used to make horse-drawn carriages, then morphed into the automobile carriage giant that supplied General Motors.

There are plenty of people that build engines, cars, manufacture parts, etc... that can move over into electric car production. As they grow in demand, more of those types of workers will be needed, as hopefully (eventually) the market for internal combustion starts to diminish. It will take a while, but 20 years ago I would have never believed there would be this many electric cars on the road, much less affordable ones.

I have to also say that I moved to Los Angeles 16 years ago, and the difference in the air quality from then to now is significant. The buses all run on natural gas, not pouring out diesel fumes, and there are countless other measures that have gone into place that have improved the air quality here in a major way, including more electric cars on the road.”

“In Virginia, hybrid owners are being charged an extra fee since they pay little in road tax from gasoline sales. As a New Yorker, we know the government is quite good at finding ways to tax us.

With smart meters, the government can add a road tax for the electric we use in transportation.

As a former Kodak employee, I understand quite well that many will lose their jobs when technology advances. Very little tax revenue from the photography business these days yet picture taking is at an all time high.”

“What people fail to understand is there 2 sets of rules in England one is for the public with all of the idignation of weapons that kill maim and or torture and there is the real world where arms are either manufactured and or sold to the rest of the world our main man in the east is prince Andrew he works for BAE weapons systems ,then we have what is known as END USER CERTIFICATES these have to be signed by government officials ,the business sis worth billions
and so is protected .

What do you think happened to all of those weapons that were captured from the Agentinians?
they got sold to some other 3rd world faction and the government pocketed the cash .

Is there any inquirey into signed end user certificates for chemicals ? no of course not ,they like the money but dont want the publicity !”

“I dont conspiracy , in do fact though ,Mercedes bought out [computer assist braking = these cars were applying the bakes on there own , they were recalled for a software upgrade .
Take one C.A.N emission system where the sensor relies on an RF signal from the sensor to the computer ,the RFsignal in those cars is transmitted 32ft for some strange reason .
the hack = bypass abs gate out the sensor set system to apply pressure to none side of the system only !

“An american journalist was killed last month when his MERCEDES car suddenly rolled over while being chased by the F.B.I !
Im not into conspiricy , In all of this no one at the inquest asked for the cars computer to be looked at for any data downloads ! considering Mercedes cars fitted with computer assist braking had some bad problems with this system when they bought it out ,resulting in a recall and a software upgrade to the cars computer ,the cars assist system was reading emergency brake issue when there was not one ! these cars were stopping for no reason at all !

begs the question what signal disrupted them to do that ? even the the Mercedes issues were never bought up ! you have to wonder why either the police were/are incompedent or there is something else either way the computer was never looked into for evidence of any kind !”

had that been checked by a trusted professional person it would have shown in the fault log
the MERCEDES had problems with computer assisted brakes when nit first came out ,the cars would apply the brakes for no reason ,they were recalled and had a software update .

It was signal interference that was applying the brakes ,some one just took it a step further !”

“Forget the conspiricy crap,computer assisted brakes get a signal from an infra red /radar distance sensor this signals computer as to how much pressure to apply to brakes in relation speed /distance, gate out the abs and signal the system to apply pressure to one side of the system only , C.A.N emission systems work on an RF signal being sent from a sensor to the computer, its this signal that was gated ,the computer will hold a [fault /action record ] its this that someone needs to see the police did not look at it ! by know the unit will have been reset or replaced !

“it worked as follows= computer assisted braking = signal is generated from the radar/infra red distance sensor to the computer as to brake pressure needed ,the A.B.S is gated out the system is directed to apply pressure on to one side of the system only =2 near side wheels =catastophic impact into pillar or in the case of an American journalist last month a high speed roll over .

Vehicles with the C.A.N EMISSION SYSTEM work on sensors that transmit a signal to a sensor
a distance of 32ft ,this signal can be intercepted ,these vehicles had a problem of the brakes going on for no known reason they were recalled and new software was added !

The computer on di,s car was never checked for [fault action ] in the computer logs !it would have shown up , unless it was replaced with a another unit !”
