Hope the link works. This wasn't even a blip on the National News.

They're pushing the souped-up golf carts really hard. It's not as bad as the censorship of vaccine injuries and deaths, but they sure won't publish anything negative about their EV project. The MSM writers and editors these days are total scumbags.

There's a factor that no one seems to be considering, whether that's the implementors or the greenies... that's cooling of the battery packs. The lack of cooling systems is what's causing the fires. They're not putting them in because they are either water intensive or energy intensive. If they implement open loop cooling (water in/water out), they would churn through a metric fuckton of water (fresh as seawater will corrode the fuck out of everything in very short order). If they go closed loop cooling, they need a lot of energy to dump the heat out of the water.

Shit's fucked bro.

Excessive overcharging, physical damage or a short can cause a fire. Be hard to cool that.
