    Hello Jag-Black,

    ""I don't see getting little or nothing for lots of money as being rational." Do you mean paying a man to have nothing firm after 39 years of investigating?"

    I don't think you understand what I was saying. I said that going electric is very expensive for all, and it is not going to make any real difference, that is what I mean by not being rational, the idea of converting from liquid to electric fuelling.

    Because someone works in a particular industry does not mean that he is not capable of rational and objective analysis.

    There is nothing new or advanced with electric vehicles, it is using technology for industrial drives that has been around for decades. Batteries are advancing slowly but they are still far too heavy and that would seem to be unlikely to change.

    Anyone who takes their own life is to be pitied.
    Their demons are within their mind and often attempts to alleviate them are futile.
    Compassion is good but invariably too late.
    RIP (DEP as they say here)
