    Yes, If they'd been asking for investors then it would be a scam for sure. I'm giving the benefit of doubt for now !

    Might be but I like Navy types. Found this on him Link might be legitimate.

    Then I eagerly await the proof - reviewed of course by independent testing. Iím not saying heís a scammer but Iím naturally a sceptical person. If itís all legit, heíll be a billionaire in no time. If not, heíll just have the development funds in his back pocket and a smile on his face anyway.

    I would have thought the opposite - heíll do a runner with the investment money...

    I think all those conspiracy theories about people being murdered by the oil companies is a little ĎTin foil hatí for my liking.

    That article is full of conspiracies - the deep state car companies are holding him back apparently.

    But why does the world need this ASAP? Until the world is entirely powered by renewables, electric cars will be running on coal. Even if you have your own solar panels, using the power to offset coal is better than using the power to offset diesel generated power. Coal gives about 30% less energy per unit CO2 produced than does diesel fuel.

    Gasoline (without ethanol)

    There was a good reason why coal fired trains were replaced by diesel/electric trains.

    Yes - but it had nothing to do with CO2 emissions. Diesel electric trains had lower maintenance requirements, had a much more immediate availability (have you any idea how long it takes to heat fifty tons of water to boiling point?), and the fuel was a lot easier to manage - so overall costs were lower, despite having to replace engines that in many cases were as good as new even aft six or more decades of use, and despite the fuel being more expensive and imported instead of local.

    Renewables are coming

    [QUOTE=Silenceisgolden;2946666]But why does the world need this ASAP? Until the world is entirely powered by renewables, electric cars will be running on coal. "

    Britain now has more renewable generation than non-renewable

    Renewable energy in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia

    We could do the same here if the current government wasn't pocketed by Dear Gina. (See that photo with Mr "Drumpf" - with Gina centre-stage between The Donald and Scud-Mud?)

    Germany closed its last coal-mine and all former miners were employed in renewables or something else.
    Ditto - we could do the same here.

    As for scam - that was my first guess; but if you look at the history of 'the guy', who has employed him, who was worked with him, (Unless all the reporting has been utterly shabby) - he should have been called out by now. I'm not familiar with this bit of tech - not my area anyway - but I'll be consulting with my "daughter the PHD in renewables" and maybe share her feedback in this forum.

    My next car will be electric. I wish Land Rover was moving faster on this front. I love Ian McCullam's Jag. Beyond my budget, however... But an EV with a 50cm wading depth?? Still tempting... But a new 100 with a range like that? Not only tempting but usable in our vast country. So - for me - sooner is better.
