If you throw out all the "EVs will never work, there batteries will die!, they are too slow, they don't go far enough, they can't be charged, they can't go cross country, the company will go out of business, the interior isn't nice enough, the sky is falling!", then your true colors start to show. Information that is either blatantly incorrect, or has technical solutions currently being pursued. Just like where you throw out all these reasons why you think it'll be dead or why it won't take over, reasons that can easily be applied for anything new that has come along. If we lived like that, we'd still be riding horses and lighting candles. Trying to bring Gore into this is a classic bait and switch attempt. Again, more fear. Guess what? It's ok to be afraid, it's a natural human defense mechanism. The important thing to do though is to not make irrational decisions based on that fear. Easier than it sounds in some cases.
There's the stupid horse analogy again. It's really silly. If EVs were better in any way than ICE you could start to make that claim, but the simple fact is they aren't, so why is this "progress"?
