What you need to know about COVID-19: September 18, 2020
Mike Cassidy is a treasure. I ride his transit buses regularly in winter when I can't or won't ride my little motorcycle. It suits me fine, and the drivers are always helpful and courteous.
Now he is giving an electric bus a demo (Taking historic test drive, Feb. 8). Good for him. This surely is the way of the future, eventually, global warming or no. However, nobody seems to be asking the question, from where will the extra electricity come?
If we are pinning our faith on wind and solar, forget it, they don't add up. Nuclear is the only way to go, and I'm pleased to note that another fan of public transit also finds that there is no other solution.
As always, I ask people to do some reading and weigh up the pros and cons and hopefully come to the same conclusion as I have.
