I think the deal was that GM bought the rights to the electric car when it wasn't getting support and raised the prices to an abysmal rate

I could be wrong I gotta double check my sources

There are no rights on electric cars and anybody can get around the patents that were there at the time (hell, they even do today). The truth of the matter is that the government (even if they tried the hardest they could) would not be able to stop an electric vehicle from going to market. It wasn't the companies fault either, they did market study after study and tried to flip it each way they could but failed to find a way to make a buck off it. And trust me, if there was a buck to be made they'd have jumped on it faster than a fat kid on a cupcake. The truth is the public are the ones who delayed the EV's so much. No one would compromise speed, autonomy, esthetics and above all price for a vehicle that was inferior in every way (except the hippies, but fuck em they dont have 100K$ needed to purchase the car anyway).

There's a film called "Who Killed the Electric Car" and basically it will tell you how companies feared they will go out of business so they use their allies up in Washington to sanction the electric car to nonexistence.

You'll find the reasons why there if you have a good hour
#169 - vanguard (06/01/2016) [-]
you mean the car that cost 250000$ to manufacture that was funded by the government was killed because of politics? No, it was just not commercially viable. That was a car with a 100km range (on its good days) which used batteries that had to be replaced every couple of years that was also ugly as hell. Lets just say it was pretty far from a Tesla. The car companies took it as another bit of evidence that the public wouldn't buy electric cars. It really took the Tesla model S to convince people that these things were worth buying. Once the public started buying, everyone was suddenly making electric cars. Strange how that works isn't it?

well alright
But it's still a product of their USE, not manufacture

A solar panel will never explode and hurt anyone
Not by any of the materials contained within or produced by using it

But nuclear power plants can and have exploded
So alright, its not the fuel rods themselves but still a byproduct of their use, something they produce, that destroyed their containment
#86 - vanguard (05/31/2016) [-]
every couple of years, a battery bank used by a solar or wind installation catches fire and sometimes explodes. A solar or wind farm is not just the turbine or pannels. In many ways, the core of the system are the inverters and battery banks. So yes, solar and wind does blow up, damage property and kill people while in operation. Just as the explosions in the nuclear plants were not caused by the nuclear material, the explosions in solar and wind farms are not caused by the pannels and turbines. However, they explode more often than nuclear ever did and caused more damage than nuclear ever has...

To be fair, he's talking about the small water explosions that happen when a plant overheats.

Oh absolutely
But I'm trying to compare the power sources by their own merits alone
And even then, nuclear wins by a huge margin.
