Jeep Fam.....Are we temporarily here again? REALLY? Or, is the writing on the wall, a sign of things to come?
Are we truly past peak oil? Is an infrastructure hack really so easy to do, and a ransom of 5 mil in order to turn things back on and reverse the hack.
Are we as a nation so naive to think this wont happen again? Its concerning and makes me think, Is this the beginning of the end of fossil fuel daily drivers?
Recently noticing the next fuel fear factor. What about you? Have you been inconvienenced by the long gas lines and shopping bags on many gas pump nozzles?
Science fiction at the movies is swiftly become fuel hard facts. Fuel motivates and mobilizes all of us.
Due to the gas stortage related to the recent pipeline hack. I have been uncomfortable in reminiscing about the 70's, 80's, 90's and even 2000's gas shortages and their effect on how we all work, travel, grocery shop, visit relatives and more.
Our love affair with gas and diesel may be coming to an end sooner, rather than later?
Like covid and the pandemic, this recent fuel supply interuption is the energy equivelent of a health pandemic for vehicles. In fact, I am remembering past multiple gas shortages and price hikes equating to long lines at the pumps and it has not only me but many nationwide, nervous and concerned wondering, whats next?
So, I started this post to hear what you y'all feel about all this and get your feedback and opinions.
A year or so ago, I started an old project of learning about electric motor bicycle and vehicle retrofit kits.
I had planned to eventiually start gathering schematics, wiring diagrams, and parts to do a alternative transportation diy bicycle and singletrack trailer build using 2nd a sturdy hand bike and mid drive motorwith a LIPO4 BATTERY.
I also, have continued to gather and save information for converting a vehicle like the jeep Grand Cherokee into a hybrid or full EV.
So, i said all that in order to make a point which is, NOW is the time to start the discussion of considering employing EV technology into our current vehiles. Now, Im not saying we have to do this overnight but, we ALL need to, AT THE VERY LEAST, at least consider the possibility of a hybrid or full EV future with discussions on the electrification of our current vehicles?
We should be asking these deeper questions, the future stops for no one, my question is, are we ready?
