Not a battery fan

Somebody's worried about BMW moving to China.

Part of the deal is to make electric cars.  That might be a good move, but if it involves primarily batteries, then I'm not so worried about it.

Batteries are unlikely to be the answer, in my opinion.  They will always be too heavy, and they won't last long enough to get your money back.

A solution to the problem has been studied on this blog.

Should the USA be worried?  Maybe, but if it is because of batteries, I think not.

Not to mention that Germany and the West seem hellbent on self-destruction.  Any deal with China benefits China mainly.  The only thing Trump brings to the table is the idea that we should be taking care of ourselves better.  But that is not what is happening in the West.  If there is anything to worry about it's the tendency to make deals with those who do not have our best interests at heart.

You cannot do much about people who want to destroy themselves.  Trump pushes Germany and they don't get better, they get worse.  Maybe it is time to cut the cord forever with these people.
