This is like that egomaniacal a-- Elon Musk telling people if they use
their Tesla's for anything but personal driving, he'd cut off their
ability to charge.

Electrical cars are fuled by that that's i the socket of your wall. Whatever!

Maybe a clarification is in order: Electricity are not self generated
so if the last kWh is generated with coal then it's coal that powers
your car and so on... Every time you make an energy conversion from
like coal to electricity you have huge looses in energy efficiency.
Conclusion: electrical cars won't be safe to environment until we
generate electricity with hydrogen reactors.

... or new types of nuclear reactors.

Fission, uranium reactors are safe handled safely. Fusion, hydrogen
would be even safer, unless Goldfinger gets the one he has on
backorder...

Molten salt reactors are even better.


Do they really exist as actual reactors I thought molten salt was just used as energy storage in australia.

.... a different kind of beast altogether.

Thorium, molten sodium, etc. If these reactors were ever viable, they'd already have been built.


The US did a lot of work on molten salt reactors in the 1960s and 70s.
In the event Nixon pulled the plug on them for (a) political reasons
and (b) because they wouldn't produce weapons grade material.
Incredibly, the results of all the research work was destroyed.

China has been working on them for several years and say that they
intend that by the time they reach commercial viability China will own
all the patents.
