Cost of Iraq and Afghanistan war in about a decade? $1.4E12
Cost of an average electric car today? $4E4
Considering 50% discount reduction when ordered in tens of millions!
Cost of war ~ 70M electric cars. (Half of the U.S. fleet)
Note: 98% of oil is burned in vehicles.
If the money spent on war was spent on electric cars, U.S. would be independent from oil import.
Electric cars would have been affordable already. Therefore, rest of the world would reduce oil consumption.
Therefore, funding for terrorist would have gone. Saudi arabia, Iran, Qatar, etc. wouldn’t have enough surplus to fund terrorism.
And world would have been a much nicer place to live.
