The United States has the largest network of energy pipelines in the world with more than 2.4 million miles of pipe. 72,000 miles of those pipes carry crude oil........

Unless they can figure out how to move renewable energy through those pipes, fossil fueled vehicles aren't goin' anywhere!

The oil companies are way to big to let this happen. I would think auto dealers would have to start buying back cars as well. I believe We are a little farther away from this ever happening in the next 10 to 15 years. Who is going to pay for the millions of worthless cars out there after they do this. I would think they would stop selling cars that run on fuel and then try and gradually get rid of them. So in my opinion here. It can't happen for a long time.

And what government would that be? His claim covers the "entire world."

I think he GREATLY overestimates the adoption between new "vehicle" sales and the decline of legacy support. Most of us do not operate our households on "5-year budget predictions." Think about the inverse, if you purchase a car today, he claims it will be unusable by 2032 - a 15-year life cycle. Is a 2002 vehicle still usable today? Is a 1967 vehicle - 50 years! - still usable today?

This guy has been circling the internet toilet for a while now. At one point, he likened this prediction to the adoption of cell phones, and how today virtually NOBODY has a "land line" anymore. Remember the movie "Wall Street"? In 1987 - 30 years ago - only the super-wealthy held an impractically large cell phone and virtually everybody else had a land-line. But a cell phone costs around $1000, and a vehicle costs 20x that (or more). To suggest the two products will follow equal adoption paths is absurd and careless. I suspect this is ALL a ploy to market his personal brand as an "industry disruptor" in buzz-heavy Silicon Valley.

Eye roll.

Knew a fella over in England, smart guy, a writer. Last I heard, from one of his closest friends, was that one of his tomes was turned into a TV Series. He was real happy. Then, really not. Because he thought his book would start a worldwide revolution and cause the overthrow of the British government.

Naturally.. Great disappointment followed.

Moral of this story? People write a lot of crap for a lot of idiotic reasons, and, generally, you really shouldn't have read even this far.

Yeah those smart people are so dumb. Glad I'm not smart. Because of my dumbness I know more than the smart people. In fact, I am so dumb that I'm brilliant.
