Ace Psychotherapist Jim Davis on 'Research.'
Naughty-but-NICE:
Research and cream cake. Let me admit from the outset that I can be
a suspicious person at times, and no more so when something is agreed by
everybody as being thoroughly good! A bit like the ‘man in the crowd’ (see last
issue’s Alterego c...

Electric cars are us!
 
Oslo, Norway to London, England in a Tesla Model S
In February this year I drove from Oslo to London in a Model S P85. 
I say it cost €5 which in terms of fuel is 100% accurate, but obviously we spent a bit on food, hotels and the Eurotunnel. 
With Tesla in Europe and America, the carefully manufactured lie of 'range anxiety' simply doesn't apply.
An ever expanding supercharger network, huge battery capacity and high speed recharging results in all the nonsense of electric cars  'simply don't have the range' is kicked into the long grass.
The longer I drive electric cars, the more strident I realise I'm becoming about the 'range anxiety' myth. 
The term was created by a PR company working for General Motors when they withdrew the EV1 and introduced the civilian Hummer to the Californian market. 
I think we occasionally need a reminder at how hard, brutal and dirty  vested interests that are at odds with electric car development will descend to.
I suggest they are beginning to fail now, but boy it's been unpleasant.
