Let's discuss the inaccuracies in the article and I will send thread to Forbes/author.

"Battery electric vehicles are a rare case of a product which is both substantially more expensive and with significantly worse performance than the technology it is supposed to replace. The only real gain, lower emissions, are achieved at a high cost, making it inefficient from a cost-benefit perspective. Given the expense of electric vehicles, government support represents energy class warfare, and the upper classes are winning."

You have to give him credit for truth in advertising with his title, anyway. Though for completeness it should be "...by dummies, for dummies".

But seriously (oh wait, I was serious), why waste your time feeding the trolls? All they want is clicks, and the article is bait.

What is going on with that picture? Did they morph the MS into a Prius shape? or should I avoid milk stout (I'm so *not* a beer person, but when you go to a brewery...) and go back to white wine?
