How to permanently get off oil and gas and start running on free self-sustaining energy.Getting Off Oil, World news Saturday, December 15th, 2012
Nikola Tesla proved in 1931 just how easy it is to convert every new and used GM, Ford and Chrysler gas guzzling vehicle into a zero emission electric vehicle.. He removed the gasoline engine of a Pierce Arrow and replaced it with an electric motor and drove for hours, at speeds as high as 90 mph. Today, 81 years later, it is still possible to easily convert any gasoline engine vehicle into an all-electric vehicle and it will operate for hours – without having to stop and recharge. Not a drop of oil, gasoline, hydrogen fuel, natural gas, bio-fuel or fresh water will ever have to be stripped mined. fracked, manufactured or used again. No more polluting combustion engines. No more exhaust systems. No more vehicle CO2 pollution.
Today, in 2012, we can remove every gasoline combustion engine and replace it with a zero emission electric motor. At the same time we can remove the gas tank, the fuel lines, the exhaust system, the water pump, radiator, and all emission control devices because an electric motor car doesn’t need them. We didn’t need them 81 years ago and we don’t need them now.
We don’t need them because electric motor cars don’t need a drop of gasoline or diesel. Because they don’t need or use a single drop of gasoline or diesel electric motor cars produce zero carbon (CO2) emissions. No CO2 emissions means no smog and no contributing to global warming. No CO2 emissions also means the elimination of most respiratory diseases. That alone will save $billions in health care costs. The US wouldn’t need Obama’s unconstitutional Health Care Extortion Bill. Just 1 gasoline or diesel vehicle produces tons of carcinogenic (cancer causing) CO2 each year.
The fact that electric cars don’t need fuel tanks or fuel lines means the elimination of fuel leakage and fuel fires in an automobile accident. How many people have been burned alive, trapped inside their burning oil fuel vehicle? No amount of airbags are going to save you if your oil fuel tank or oil fuel line ruptures and ignites. Apart from the horrific consequences of driving around, strapped inside an oil fuel bomb, the fuel tank needs to be constantly filled up with very expensive ($4 to $5 a gallon) diesel or gasoline fuel. Can you afford to continue to pay $80 to $100 to fill up? How far can you go on $80 to $100 of oil fuel? Does it last you the week?
Electric cars have no rusting and pollution (CO2) emitting exhaust manifolds, no catalytic converters, no O2 sensors, no mufflers and no tailpipes. How much does it cost you every year to replace those rusting oil fuel exhaust parts?
Electric motor vehicles have no radiators, no toxic radiator fluid, no coolant pump, no coolant lines and no radiator hoses. Electric motors don’t get as hot as oil fuel engines so they don’t need all those costly and bulky cooling system parts. That means if you drive an electric vehicle you won’t overheat and get stranded on the highway in rush hour traffic, during a heatwave.
You can run an electric vehicle indoors for hours or days and not kill (by CO2 asphyxiation) anyone. Try doing that with a oil fuel vehicle and you will no doubt send a lot of people to the hospital or to the morgue.
Whenever someone who owns a Big 3 (Government Motors, Ford and Chrysler) manufactured oil fuel vehicle brags to me that their new vehicle is environmentally friendly I always tell them that if you truly believe that, prove it by parking it in their garage, with the garage door closed, the engine running and them sitting in it.
We didn’t need combustion engines 81 years ago and we don’t need them now. Let’s make 2013 the year the World got off oil.
