Electric Vehicles: The White Elephant That Belongs in the Zoo!

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT, throw away your driving or motorcycle gloves for the sake of driving an electric vehicle.

Electric vehicles are simply a quick fix to the current system. Yes okay, we are all going to have to use less energy which could also arguably include using less plastic junk and being more rational with our everyday vehicle usage. But, electric vehicles are not the answer! Electric vehicle development still belongs in the laboratory and we need to find better ways to store and refuel electricity.

Most of the latest electric cars can do about 85 miles an hour. But, for a range of only about 90 miles and an eight-hour recharge. One lap at the Isle of Man TT and an electric bike is flat! How could you watch that? How could you even justify the action of pulling on a pair of leather motorcycle gloves to do that? The sight of a racing bike leaning into a sweeper without the characteristic sound of accelerating internal combustion power is completely incomprehensible. Sacrilege even! No, only when something better is invented, is it time to develop serious bikes and cars.

Despite their ‘green’ image, electric vehicles are less efficient and more polluting than petrol ones they want to replace. They are not very ‘green’ at all. They are ‘white’ and they are elephants! The electric vehicle craze is no more than a craze. Let’s be honest, the only race an electric bike will ever win is against another. How dull is that? Forget the protective clothing and motorbike gloves…it’d be slower than watching lawnmowers race, or turtles! Why? Because batteries are heavy and inefficient.

Don’t kid yourself by sitting in the ‘electric bike crowd’ and think that by doing so, you are doing your ecological, environmental and ideological best for society. The planet will still warm! Despite what most people believe, a high percentage of the world’s electricity is produced using ‘dirty fuels’ like oil and coal. And this is NOT going to change anytime soon. In fact, the more electric vehicles that are produced, the more the world will rely on ‘dirty fuels’ to keep up with increasing demand for electricity. And another interesting fact for you to ponder is this. Even with silly government subsidies, electric vehicles are all priced higher than their petrol or diesel equivalents.

Electrics as a first car or bike is useless. Sure, you can commute in or on one, but as soon as the weather drops and you flick on the car heater and your range halves to about 30 miles, your likelihood of being stranded on the freeway during peak hour doubles. The answer, commute in your petrol equivalent and do everything else too, at any time, over any distance. Don’t spend all day getting to work!

Pull on your motorcycle gloves for one reason… common sense.

Electrical Engineering Jobs

While many people may have a preconceived notion about electrical engineering jobs and what they entail, most do not realize that electrical engineering jobs encompass more than jobs dealing with electricity. Electrical engineering is a wide field that involves many different disciplines, and there are a variety of electrical engineering jobs in a variety of different fields. Electrical engineers usually deal with electricity as energy, and they have electrical engineering jobs in fields that harness the energy and develop ways to adequately use electricity for various needs.

The variety of electrical engineering jobs include working with cellular phones, the development of electrical systems in vehicles, wiring the electrical systems in buildings, and working to keep large scale power systems working effectively. Some electrical engineering jobs may even include working on intricate control systems for fighter jets, commercial airplanes, and even space shuttles.

Usually, electrical engineering jobs require that engineers work with electrical systems on quite a large scale, but one branch, electronic engineering, deals with the electrical systems on a very small scale. Usually, these types of electrical engineering jobs require dealing with small integrated circuits and computer systems. Whether an electrical engineer deals with small electrical systems or large electrical systems, there are a variety of electrical engineering jobs available.

Although there are already many electrical engineers around the world, there are a variety of electrical engineering jobs that are open and need to be filled. Becoming an electrical engineer takes a great deal of education, dedication, and hard work. So there are not enough electrical engineers to fill all the electrical engineering jobs that are available. If you are looking for a great career opportunity, you may want to think about becoming an electrical engineer. The pay for electrical engineering jobs is excellent, with most electrical engineers earning more than $50,000 each year, and some making much more than that.

If you want to become an electrical engineer so you can help to fill the open electrical engineering jobs that are available, you will need to attend college and get a degree in engineering. Both science and mathematics will be very important to becoming an engineer, so it is important that your grades are excellent in both disciplines. While there are many electrical engineering jobs available, the field is also highly competitive, so you will need to make sure you have excellent grades while you are studying to become an electrical engineer. Employers want engineers that are dedicated, smart, and innovative so they can take their knowledge and apply it to their job.

Whether you are interested in electrical engineering jobs working with battleships or fighter jets, or you are interested in jobs that deal with cellular phones and computer systems, there are many jobs that are available. Getting an electrical engineering degree can open up a host of electrical engineering jobs that you can choose from, if you work hard and excel as a student. Getting your degree as an electrical engineer is only the beginning of where you can go in the field of electrical engineering.

Are Electrical Cars the Future of Transporting?

Changes happening day by day are more and more notorious. Worldwide nation’s main concerns are focused on the lack of oil. In these days, with current technological advances, the electric car has no future except for people who are willing to buy one of these vehicles only and exclusively for use in a city.

The electric car will be an option when we have a range of energy equal to or above than the internal combustion engine. These electrical vehicles appear to have a range of only 130 kilometers.

How an electric car should work to be useful?

1-The battery should be charged using the same time or less than what it took to fill a fuel tank. Who will be willing to wait two hours or overnight to recharge their car batteries?

2-Once fixed the problem of charging time, we should have the same access to recharge or better than what we have with gas station service stations.

3-The electric car should have same features in speed, power and comfort of vehicles we currently have.
Who is behind of this technological delay?

The image that politicians want to sell us is the picture of a sustainable economy, but if this technology was developed (not to be stagnant), the goose that lays golden eggs from the oil industry, would find its end. Now tell me, who cares?

Why not developing a hybrid car?

We can alternate petrol fuel and electric power to maintain the same driving performance. Have you ever imagined smoke-free cities?

Now picture this, if we use hybrid cars, we may use gas fuel and switch to the electrical system when needed. The fuel system could be useful for long trips while the electrical system would be useful for cities. So, when using the fuel system of the car, the batteries could be charging.

Now tell me, who is not interested? I do. Do you?
