Why Cars – Both Electricity Powered and Not – Should Be Kept Behind Bars:-)

I just read in Facebook how nice it would be if the only cars still left to us were e-cars. It is certainly technologically possible even today and “the government” wants to ban new cars with gasoline or diesel engines by the year 2030. And then I hear arguments for the mobile electric future. I find this rather confusing and immediately can think of a few things to say about it:

  • E-cars are first and foremost coal cars – as long as all around the world most of the electricity is produced with coal …
  • They are not a way to put a stop to the individual mobile mania that makes people use motorised monsters and sports devices on soil that has been covered with concrete – see Tesla …
  • The parking problem is also only one of many that even e-cars will not solve – just like the consumption of raw materials, reduced physical exercise, conflicts in mega cities, perceived omnipotence of a ruthless minority that are symbols of our XXL/X large live style. …
  • The self-driven car makes sense for some applications – and this is something we can only have in the form of an e-car…
  • However, it will be totally different from what we see speeding over the motorways today…
  • The mental concept of a huge SUV driving through the streets as a robot car makes me feel no different from the concept of seeing one of those Boston Dynamics fighting robots (like the Atlas) cross my path.
  • When the self-driving car comes, people will no longer park it as a status and power symbol in their car parks or in front of their homes. Instead, they will order it when they need it and tell it to take them where they need to go. …
  • I no longer go places by car – and am more mobile than I have ever been before in my life.…
  • … which, among other things is due to modern mobility tools such as trailers, folding bikes and the like …
  • … and I feel extremely comfortable – more comfortable than ever before in my life …
  • … and I can no longer imagine what you might need a car for…

Basically, the new German orthography should write “Outo”, instead of “Auto”, because it is totally out!

Neither will I ever drive an e-car …
