RE: In the auto news today -- Volvo.

While you mentioned the benefits of the established technology, you didn't mention the reasons it is being replaced. It seemed an odd string of one sided statements, perhaps just offhand remarks, because it seems to indicate a failure to understand the reasons electric cars are gaining market share. That can't be right.

It seemed odd to me to praise costs, popularity, and designs of gas machines when all of that is relative, and subject to change. Horses were certainly more popular, cost less, and were a more dependable design than a car at one time. The problem then and now, pollution.

Instead of piles of horse waste, gasoline waste costs could be dispersed into the atmosphere where all share in the effects of internal combustion waste products. A native guy whose family has lived off the land for centuries , that now has to move to the city and be poor and work away from his children, might not think a giant SUV is that big of a deal.
