Trump’s climate jobs talk unfounded
Tony Seba doesn’t think so. Seba is the author of “Clean Disruption,” a book about the ongoing changes in energy and transportation systems due to the increasing scale and decreasing cost of renewable energy systems and electric vehicles. He predicts that by 2030, 95 percent of miles driven by Americans won’t be covered in private cars. (…)
The reason: EVs will be both better and cheaper than ICE vehicles, and their all-in marginal costs per ride will be vastly lower, since instead of sitting around at the curb most of the day doing nothing whilst their owners are in the office, EVs will be almost constantly in service during the daytime, picking up and dropping off customers.
By 2025, batteries will be better and cheaper, fast-recharging posts will be ubiquitous, and cars will be self-driving.
