(Not lookin’ good!)
Several cities in Europe and a few in the United States have banned EVs (electric cars) from underground parking garages, citing a fear of “spontaneous combustion”–these cars have a regrettable tendency to burst into flame. (Oops! Durn those lithium batteries!)
Yeahbut, yeahbut! Surely there’s no problem with carrying a few electric cars–only a few, mind you–aboard a cargo freighter on the high seas!
As we speak, firefighting ships and helicopters from several nations are trying to extinguish a fire burning “out of control” on a 650-foot-long cargo vessel a little distance off the Dutch coast (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12338705/One-sailor-dead-23-evacuated-burning-18-500-tonne-cargo-ship-carrying-3-000-cars-North-Sea-Holland-electric-vehicle-caught-fire.html). There are almost 3,000 cars aboard, en route from Germany to Egypt. Only 27 of the cars are EVs…
And one of them suddenly caught fire which spread wildly throughout the ship.
One crewman has died, 23 were lifted off by helicopter, and seven were fished out of the water. Many of these crew members have serious injuries.
But that won’t stop globalists and other wackos from extolling EVs as the wave of the future, and something which we dare not do without. Gotta get rid of those gas-powered cars that don’t suddenly blow up for no reason! Who cares about out-of-control fires when you’re Saving The Planet?
How these jidrools manage to hold on to any authority is a mystery to me.
