RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

All , good sorry for the derailment. I do like the concept, and just hope it turns out to be a good idea, long term. I know some love the cars, and the home power pack, and the solar panels. Im just not convinced the technology is there yet. Carry on. Ill go back to just following for a bit!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

So if its the same , why bother?Because there is an incremental improvement in all areas at lower cost. This has yet to be scene. I for one would like to know the long term effects of some of this stuff. But that goes back to what i said before. We dont know. Im not saying we should stop looking for advancements, but maybe we should study them more before implementing stuff on a large scale. Just for fun, and this is true, did you know that cement is the 3rd largest contributer to co2 in The world. Weird fact, right? Everything we do has consequences.

I think he has to atuall perfect something first. His solar roofs catch fire, and some of his cars are rated like dead last for imperfections. He does have a great outlook on stuff. But the cost to make it cheap and affordable is creating a inferior produt. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/11/05/tesla-and-walmart-settle-over-solar-rooftop-fires.html you can google for houses also. I can find the car Then you need batteries to hold the power, i know tesla has them in prodution. But what happens when they catch fire, or leak etc. Idk. I would need to resurch the last one more. You should talk and convince the current Tesla owners on the imperfections. Most if not all of them will get another Tesla for a replacement or Tesla for an upgrade. Thats akin to talking people out of a cult. Lol. Just because people like them dosen't mean they dont have problems. There is a diffrence. Peole buy them because they are smitten with tesla and the ideal behind it. And I forgot, I also the kind of person who won't tell anyone where to spend their money on or giving unsolicited advice on what truck they buy.:B:W What does that even mean? I never told you what to buy or where to spend your money. I really dont care. I said tesla builds stuff fast and cheaply that causes problems with the end product.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I remember back when nukes were supposed to produce energy so cheap there would be no reason to meter the usage. Now it is the most expensive to develop and produces waste that has no secure method of storage or treatment. Solar panels collect fusion power just fine. Panels should last as long as the typical design of any power plant of 50 years. Waste of all things is an issue... at least the panels are not radio active. I do hope recycling of all these energy related items improves over time. Worst case it will be a noble try using the best science and technology that we currently have. Bring on the Tesla Semi. Because that works out so well for us. Lol. We did the plastic bag thing, it was all the rage to save the planet in the 90s. Now it is one of the biggist thing destroying it. Unicef went into africa in the 70s digging wells so the people had clear water. It worked but the wells were not drilled far enough and they killed many more then the dirty water they allready had. Sometimes having a little kowlage is dangerous. We rush into things thinking its the better way baised on out best technology and science. Then we find out we are dead wrong.

RE: Rear View with ? Camera ?

The problem will be moving the camera. It is mounted to the rear of the camper. So while you can remove the screen you have to mount and hook up the camera. When traveling the cheaper ones will freeze up and occasionally glutch out on you. For me its not a big deal. Yes , if the wireless sensors are out of range they will not work.

RE: Rear View with ? Camera ?

Hate to say it, but when driving get used to the side mirrors. I rarely ever use my rear window mirror. Just habit. If you want a camera, hook it up to you running lights. When you put them on it will power the rear camera. Some are better then others. So if you want something nice and clear, its costly. I have my backup camera set up this way. Its good for lane changes if needed. Mine is wireless and goes to its own screen in the TV. Some you can intergrate with the TV screen if you have one.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

The problems are going to be how you get the electricity. Allready California had to reverse closing coal fired power plants. Thats because they could not provide enough electricity at night during there most recent heat wave. Add in all new electric vehicles over there and i think they will have a mess. You have to sort out the supply and demand first. Yah could be. I’m not up on this issue and it’s not an issue in our province. But this is being addressed all over the world so it’s obviously a solvable problem. Electric vehicles will add about 1 percent additional load per year over the next couple of decades. Most modern nations will figure it out. Most modren nations use nuclear power. We havent. Hard to say. Generally speaking nuclear is declining in the world due to costs. Companies and governments are starting to realize the long term costs that hundreds of generations in the future to deal with decommissions sites etc. Lots of interesting reading on the subject. https://www.worldfinance.com/markets/nuclear-power-continues-its-decline-as-renewable-alternatives-steam-ahead Oh. And the world leader in production of nuclear power is the US. And the same goes for the damage from battery waste, mining and the way you get the power from it, lots of intresting articals on the subject. https://youmatter.world/en/are-electric-cars-eco-friendly-and-zero-emission-vehicles-26440/ https://unctad.org/news/developing-countries-pay-environmental-cost-electric-car-batteries

And the world leader in production of nuclear power is the US. Not a lot or real up to date data on this one. Nuclear is about 10 percent of total electrical power in the world. Renewable energy is not so much. So there is much more fossil fuels etc. Is it declining, thats up to you to decide. Without a fuel to take its place, i dont think so. Your articals talk more on what it costs after a disaster then how many people use it. And more cou tries would use it if they had the technology to do so. We stoped building reacters in the 70s? But places in Europe continued and get the majority of there ellectric from it.

Thats because they could not provide enough electricity at night during there most recent heat wave. Add in all new electric vehicles over there and i think they will have a mess. You have to sort out the supply and demand first.Coal is all but shut down in CA. There is no reopening of coal fired plants. There has never been an issue of overnight electric capacity in CA. The issue of inadequate supply has happened in the late evening when solar is decreasing, natural gas plants are ramping up unable to keep up with air conditioning. Typically this crunch comes between 7pm and 9pm during statewide heatwaves. The most recent power curtailment due to supply was an evening when wind power was lower than usual and a natural gas plant went off line unexpectedly. This brought rotating one hour cut in power to some residents. These outages did not continue through the night. However there are more outages during heat waves due to local distribution equipment failures. Many of these repairs to upgrade the system lasted several days during the heat wave. Workers were brought in from out of state to help with the workload. Here is the real time supply data: (note very little coal) http://www.caiso.com/TodaysOutlook/Pages/supply.html Even on a mild day like today there are 50+ outages affecting several thousand people just in SoCal Edison territory. Not for lack of electricity. https://www.sce.com/outage-center/check-outage-status You right, ot was the natural gas plants that have to stay open now. My mistake. Its not a distribution problem but a storage problem. I didnt read your links. Dont have to. Solar needs to be stored or supplemented at night. Kinda of a no brainer on that one. If most cars charge at night there will be more demand.
