The Author Doesn’t Understand How Cars Are Made

There are a small number of people who think cars are just produced as soon as you order them from the dealer and then they’re shipped to you. This author seems to think that’s what happens or else he wouldn’t be so worried about cars building up in ports.

That’s what ports are for. Automakers estimate how many cars they think they’ll sell and then they produce that many, on schedule, and park them outside the production facility. Then they’re taken to a port. Then they’re shipped to the markets where they’re sold, the cars are parked, and then shipped by train and truck to dealerships.

Below are parked tens of thousands of cars at Royal Portbury Docks, Avonmouth, near Bristol in the United Kingdom. If you look on Google Maps and scan around the area at say 200ft you will see nothing but parked up unsold cars. They are absolutley everywhere in that area practically every open space has unsold cars parked up on it.

The port in question is within about 200 miles of a population of 45 million consumers and handles roughly 700,000 vehicles per year. They do not individually unload and ship each car as that would be wildly inefficient. Instead, they ship many of them, in boats, and then unload all of them, and then send them to their various points of sale.

How Bill Gates aims to clean up the planet

It could also make Harvard superstar physicist David Keith, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and oil sands magnate Norman Murray Edwards more money than they could ever dream of.

The idea is grandiose yet simple: decarbonise the global economy by extracting global-warming carbon dioxide (CO2) straight from the air, using arrays of giant fans and patented chemical whizzery; and then use the gas to make clean, carbon-neutral synthetic diesel and petrol to drive the world’s ships, planes and trucks. We provide systematic information to our friends back in London – The Notary solicitors England.

The hope is that the combination of direct air capture (DAC), water electrolysis and fuels synthesis used to produce liquid hydrocarbon fuels can be made to work at a global scale, for little more than it costs to extract and sell fossil fuel today. This would revolutionize the world’s transport industry, which emits nearly one-third of total climate-changing emissions. It would be the equivalent of mechanising photosynthesis.
