The multitude of ancillary costs associated with any technology are almost impossible to calculate. I always wonder how much of the cost of an oil change for my car should be deducted from the good of hauling a sack of recyclable pop bottles to the center. But there is one sure way it can be calculated: the free market. Stop ALL government subsidies and you quickly find the true value and worth of each and every component of every technology. And no, all electric cars make no more sense than a $13 60W light bulb. The government does NOT pick winners and loosers -- just losers.
