Don't forget that electric vehicles also require more fossil fuels to operate than comparably performing gasoline ones.



Can you spell "internal resistance" and "line losses"? Until we can replace chemical batteries with something more like capacitors we'll remain behind on the power curve.

Is that what he said? I don't read any of his dorky responses.



There are two types of engineeer. First is the kind who rolls up his sleeves and applies theory to practical application (the classic definition).



There's another class who just sit behind desks and generate paper. These excel at office politics and usually end up in management to escape from the scrutiny of having to do something useful. This is where you hear idiots throwing out terms like "Laplace" or "Thevenin".



It's pointless to debate this crap on the Internet since even the most incompetent engineer can dig around on his own and invent an answer that looks good.



You get to decide who is who.

"In actual physical systems the Laplace transform is often interpreted as a transformation from the time-domain point of view, in which inputs and outputs are understood as functions of time, to the frequency-domain point of view"



Direct from Wikipedia. Took him a while to reword it.
