Anthony Watts gets paid to push climate change denial propaganda, paid for by the fossil carbon extraction industry. They've got an obvious interest in persuading people to keep on driving gasoline-powered cars - it's an appreciable chunk of their market - which does lead them to push silly claims about how dangerous electric cars might be. -- Bill Sloman, Sydney

That is why I use Lifepo4 type batteries when possible: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithium_iron_phosphate_battery

It is video. It is fire. And, apparently, JL is scared of a fire in mid-Atlantic. But, there's no known cause of the fire.

I didn't get past the first paragraph. Quote "EV battery fires are chemically comparable to thermite fires, hot enough to melt steel, so there may not be much left to analyse by the time the ship fire finally burns itself out." An extrapolation too far. There are quite a few reports on the internet of investigations into EV battery fires. The temperatures reached are around 1000&deg;C, perhaps 1200&deg;C in some cases. That's not enough to melt steel, just to soften and weaken it. Thermite reaches around 2500&deg;C, which is not too far off the /boiling/ point of iron. The chemistry of combustion is entirely different too. -- Jeff

Yes and even Tesla is starting to usw LiFePo4 in some of their cars.

I thought you weren't scared of anything?

Adiabatic flame temperature (constant pressure) of common fuels Gasoline Air 2138 &deg;C "Burning gasoline has a temperature above 1500&deg; E (945&deg; C). Therefore, it can heat objects in the fire area above its ignition temperature. To prevent reignition after extinguishment, the agent should be applied for sufficient time to allow hot objects in the fire area to cool below the ignition temperature of the gasoline." Sounds like a very dangerous fuel to use in passenger cars you carry your children in. Good thing we are getting rid of it. We can keep it in lawnmowers where it's safe. https://www.google.com/search?q=lawnmower+fire&client=firefox-b-1-d&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjY1uTg-4v2AhXrq3IEHaA_DMIQ_AUoAnoECAEQBA&biw=923&bih=497&dpr=1.94 -- Rick C. - Get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging - Tesla referral code - https://ts.la/richard11209

It has nothing to do with fires. They are cheaper and don't use Cobalt, a material that is not so easy to come by. They still use nickel-cobalt-aluminum in the long range cars because it has a higher energy density. Neither battery chemistry has a problem with fire when compared to the highly dangerous gasoline powered vehicles. https://www.google.com/search?q=pinto+fires&client=firefox-b-1-d&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjpoPaj_Yv2AhXxoHIEHdZiCGcQ_AUoAnoECAEQBA&biw=923&bih=497&dpr=1.94 -- Rick C. + Get 1,000 miles of free Supercharging + Tesla referral code - https://ts.la/richard11209
