Police pull over bizarre electric vehicle

Police in southern England were baffled by the most bizarre electric vehicle they’d ever seen. The tiny white two-wheeler looked like an airplane cockpit without wings or a tail and had a body constructed from balsa wood and “duck tape.” But the most surprising thing about it may have been that it was found to be perfectly legal. An officer from the Beds, Cambs & Herts Roads Policing Unit tweeted photos of the vehicle, which turned out to be a custom electric motorcycle that was registered and insured. The make and specifications of this rare species is not known. Source: Twitter

Emissions reductions are only possible if you put people on bikes, not in EVs

That entails taking people out of electric vehicles and putting them on bikes or on public transport, more or less. The report, published on August 22 and titled “Clean Growth: Technologies for meeting the U.K.’s emissions reduction target,” looks at the way in which the UK has been able to achieve world-leading emissions reductions for over 20 years and the measures that need implementing for the trend to continue. Replacing current vehicles with lower-emission versions will simply not do, and is not the all-encompassing solution the government thinks it is. The report cites the United States Geological Survey’s warning of a possible future shortage of minerals needed to make electric vehicle batteries. Current estimates show that, at the rate EVs are made right now, mineral reserves...
