id guess that we have a few generations before we actually start to feel the resource pinch... another 2 or 3 before we are in real trouble...
before we start
to run out though?... well, we are already beginning to run low on things like fossil fuels...
Omg, there is this whole new window of opportunity right before us.
My technology teacher was lecturing us on this one subject of gas stations turning into "charging stations".
Tesla (and one other scientist in the 60s I believe) were concerned about fossil fuels, and they actually came up with the first ideas for "rechargeable cars". But another scientist said:
"Hey, instead of charging it, why not replace it."
The idea is:
You pull into something that looks like a gas station.
You pay for the new battery (which the cost is unknown)
A robotic arm comes out, takes off the battery, puts it into a charging room/facility.
Then the arm puts in a new battery, you drive away.
One cent is supposedly to give you one mile.
THAT would be perfect.
however, I didn't catch the whole thing, but that is the basic gist of it.
