First Edition Mach-E, Carbonized Grey #10004515, GT Mach-E, White # 10006557
As I await my MME-FE; Food for thought here...(and FYI- I was one of the earliest adopters of Reduce, Reuse, Recyle-in that order!)-Without turing this into a political conversation, and another FYI-I do not have a science background, just thinking out loud here...What about all of the plastics we use in a) daily life, b) In the newer, lighter, more fuel efficient vehicles-including EVs, and c) especially with Covid-19 and in the increased need for PPE-everything in the medical field that has become disposable plastic instead of ‘clean, sanitized and reused equipment.‘ From my understanding the refinement of petroleum/crude oil is similar to “using the whole cow“...part of thIs particular fossil fuel is used for petrol, but the other part of the fossil fuels is what plastics (Petroleum products) are made from, along with other uses of the fractioned fossil fuels. If we give up ICE, what about the plastics? what will we do with the remaining petroleum? Anyone have a chemistry degree and can explain?There's no reason we couldn't have taken the same tact here in the US - other than politics. Push for huge EV adoption, while simultaneously exporting a crap ton of oil and funding a sovereign wealth fund for future generations to enjoy.
