Re: [future-fuels-and-vehicles] How Green Are Electric Cars? Depends on Where You Plug In
- Here's another time compression example:
"To reach an audience of 50 million people, radio took 38 years, television
13 years, the Internet four years, Facebook three and a half years.
Instagram took 1.3 years."
Granted, information delivery generally piggybacks on itself, the last
three items speak to this. While new fuels and energy sources may not be
able to leverage prior technology as well. Novel energy sources may be so
outside the box that they take multiple decades just to become provable,
much less commercially viable. One analogy to remaining within the
information age is quantum computing. Although it's predicted it is
possible and experiments have started to show fractional progress, the
potential for quantcomp to replace our existing silicon transistor
technology may take decades to realize.
