“Yes the US EPA chooses to make 34.4% equal to 100%.” [Darleen Click]
How the EPA disobeys the laws of thermodynamics
Is this just another way for a do good government to dictate that the least smart student in the class gets an A. The socialist inspired nincompoops at the EPA believe the plug in needs higher grades just because three Nobel Prize winners told them so. Two of the prize winners won for peace the other for physics.
The EPA allows plug in vehicle makers to claim an equivalent miles per gallon (MPG) based on the electricity powering the cars motors being 100% efficient. This implies the electric power is generated at the power station with 100% efficiency, is transmitted and distributed through thousands of miles of lines without any loss, is converted from AC to DC without any loss, and the charge discharge efficiency of the batteries on the vehicle is also 100%. Of course the second law of thermodynamics tells us all of these claims are poppycock and that losses of real energy will occur in each step of the supply chain of getting power to the wheels of a vehicle powered with an electric motor.
But but but, it’s fundie, young earth creationist, bitter-clinging Rethuglicans & Teabagging Partyers that are anti-Science!
Obama is within his power to repeal those oppressive LAWS of thermodynamics … for the childrens!
