CARS: the video……..

12 05 2014

Whilst interesting, this video shows how many resources are needed to build the world’s cars, and associated emissions.  It assumes car numbers will grow to 2050 (we of course know better than that!) and does not take into account the possibilities of the growth in EVs in the future.

EVs actually need more resources than conventional cars, mainly because of the batteries, but also they need bigger tyres to deal with the extra weight.  The emissions caused by future cars are of course totally imaginary, there will be NO cars in 2050…….  but it’s still worth watching.

As with all the extrapolations and your predicditions, Mike, it it is hard to see it happening. Not that I disagree but I just can see it! What I do see is more new cars and a younger fleet of cars overall and an accumulation of older and some not so old cars accumulating in secondhand car yards and for sale by the roadside It is interesting to see cars as becoming the detritus of modern life.
