Yeah...they smell bad, don't they? ;)
Right up there with making pulp for paper, sanitary waste treatment plants in August in the south, and potatoes getting washed & blanched. I generally volunteer when I have co-auditors, my guts are tougher.

Good job Norway!
I won't say "it's easier there", because it isn't easy anywhere...but they've achieved 93% renewable energy (Resource)...which isn't the same as carbon neutral, but still pretty awesome when it comes to powering those EVs.
Thumbs up.

From the consumer perspective, the generous tax credits for EV purchases in Norway makes it very attractive to go that route, despite the cold climate and the batteries aversion to low temperatures. Hydroelectric power plants are the reason for such high percentage of renewable energy in Norway.

It is ironic, though, that Norway, after becoming very wealthy with the immense deposits of hydrocarbons in their sector of the North Sea are distancing themselves (slowly and prudently) from oil. Equinor is definitely reinventing itself.

Now if we could find a cost effective way to have Iceland export Geothermal energy...that would be a great thing!
Hmm...don't know much in that area...turning geothermal into electricity...would that slow Global Warming?
Please don't go down that road ... let's stay on EV's... just figured I'd share a stray thought...

I used to make (well, folks working for me used to make) screen printable pastes for making heaters printed on 430 Stainless...used for many things, one of them being fin heaters for EV's so they could warm the cabin despite having no spare heat from an ICE. I wonder if that is still in the design...
