Ford will be ready to figth it, with the Rivian pick up and its own electric F-series.
Real world? Not quite for either BEV truck. Not yet.

It will be interesting to see how they stack up though, for sure. I envision the Tesla truck to be more techy, and the Ford to be more worky.

"2. There is plenty of conclusive proof that increased levels of CO2 are actually good for all life." . Not good for all life. Increases global warming, so rising oceans and more extreme weather, more droughts may cause food crisis or am I wrong?

Who is right?
Many scientists are quick to claim we are almost at a tipping point of 400 ppm CO2, and that is causing bad weather and heating our planet and humans are the main cause.

Many scientists are also quick to point out that life on Earth has flourished, for many millions of years, with CO2 levels of 3000-5000 ppm, and that extreme weather has always existed. Obviosuly, man and the industrial revolution did not cause any of that.


We also know that Temperature fluctuations are constant thorughout history and often coincide with rising and falling CO2. But that does not mean that CO2 is the causation of increases or decrease in temps. They know this because summer and winter levels alone swing on a CO2 level graph, based on obvious seasonal vegatation.


What confuses me is that nobody wants to discuss this. Everyone has their side, either alarmist or denier, and will not change their minds. Which is fine, except one of those sides wants to drastically alter the life we live in, based on controversial beliefs and math models.

This is nothing new. I have lived my whole life in panic from false predictions. Now I see it in my kids who say, and I quote.......why bother with a career when the world will soon end. It breaks my heart and I can't get through to them.

Just watched TFLcar test their 2019 Tesla model X long range with a small trailer, I don't think one has to worry about EV pickups crowding the market.

Re: F150 EV Pulls 1 million pounds

The trailer was again the weight of the Model X itself, 4500 pounds plus the significant aerodynamic drag increase. If they had used the new 'Raven' Model X with the permanent magnetic motor on the front axle instead of an induction motor it would have done slightly better.
Yeah I agree, you need a lot more battery capacity to tow 100s of miles without a recharge. Can be done if u have the patience but towing is often a time is money matter! Plug-in hybrid trucks however do not have this limitation, can use liquid fuel. Day to day driving can use little fuel but for trips there is no problem. Solid state batteries or another advancement ready for mass use can solve the issue.
Who know how much battery capacity Rivian and tesla pickup will have.

We do not want to discuss this because just like 9/11 truthers, just like Birthers, just like Flat Earthers, just like evolution denialists, just like anti vaxxers ... you're pulling 'evidence' and 'scientists' and 'need for debate' out of thin air of conspiracy theories ... there is no debate. The science is settled. We're causing global warming / climate change. CO2 is the mechanism. This is having seriously damaging impacts on all ecosystems, this will make it hard for humans to live on this planet. Though a lucky handful of small locations may see their climate improved, the vast majority of regions, and the vast majority of people will experience life getting worse due to sea level rise, extreme weather patterns, and other impacts. **** the Russians tried to celebrate climate change warming the inhospitable Siberia - now their precious warmer Siberia is on fire.

Prove me wrong. Common .. link to a source that actually says otherwise and you will link to an opinion piece, a conspiracy theory, a lone voice of a scientist that has no support among others studying the same issue, or a blatant lie. Try me. Show me these other scientists that disagree.

Watch the video below, which showcases a special guest worth listening too, at the International Conference on Climate Change. It is mentioned that there were over 31K PHD scientists who signed an agreement that there is absolutely no conclusive proof that humans have caused CO2 to increase, and yet there is so much proof that atmospheric CO2 benefits life on earth. Here is the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiPIvH49X-E

Another great discussion disproving the CO2 alarmist theory is here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDWEjSDYfxc


So Zana, these are not fringe extremists with a political bias, but rather well renowed climatologists with unrivaled credentials backing claims by a massive community.

So, my only point here is not to debate who has the bigger cheer leading squad, but rather for honest discussion about why each side completely discounts the other side, just as you have done or assumed. Why does it have to be the deniar or alarmist camp for some, as justiification for not listening more. What about logical thinking and reason, somewhere in between, all while methodically learning all we can as we push toward a cleaner future.......instead of going balls to the wall idiot mode, drastically changing our lifestyles based on questionable models, at an alarmist pace.

I would love to hear you thoughts on both videos, they are not that long and well worth your time.

Igor,
here is a start........but I already know you won't bother to respond. That's what alarmists do, they get presented with realt facts, and ignore it.

The many charts you see that show CO2 at it's highest level in the last 400K years, is BS, because prior to that, which they conveniently cherry pick, levels were 10X higher than they are today, during the most prosperous periods for life Earth. That gets ignored, for obvious reasons.

another one for you Igor,

and again, no worries, I already know you will not watch the video or reply.

Re: F150 EV Pulls 1 million pounds

Igor,
Your comparing the majority of scientists who deny alarmists to flat-earthers…..is a joke. And your asking for links as proof….is a joke too I hope. But I know better. Alarmists, like you, refuse to discuss the topic, therefore you are ignorant of the topic, unwilling to learn. Shame
There is a limitless list of sites refuting the alarmist’s and their political and economic driven agenda. I pasted a few below for you, but I already know you won’t bother to go to them, but you asked, so here you go…….
