How many chargers are necessary to convert the Netherlands to electric cars?

Here is the question:

How much infrastructure do we need when ALL 8 million vehicles (and buses and trucks!) in the Netherlands go electric?

The answer will surprise you: we could get to 100% electric transportation in the Netherlands, just by converting the 4000 existing gast stations to fast charging stations which have an average of 14 fast chargers.

The article then plays with numbers a bit: Kilometers driven, electricity used, number of chargepoints, charging rates.

Fertig gelesen: The Secret History of Wonder Woman

One of the weirdest and most interesting characters in the DC Universe is Wonder Woman, because she is full of seemingly irreconcilable contradictions.

Created by a man, William Moulton Marston, in 1941, her history is actually deeply rooted in the Suffragette movement of the early 20th century. Marston owes much of the ideas and the origin myth to earlier stories from that era and cosmos, through his wifes  Elizabeth Holloway Marston and Olive Byrne, and through Olives Byrne’s connection with Ethel Byrne and Margaret Sanger.

The book is a biography of Marston, but really is a history of feminism in the United States, and also making a case that there are no waves, but one large, meandering river.

A much recommended, very unexpected find, and an eye-opening view on a bunch of unique characters, both real and imagined.

The Secret History of Wonder Woman“, Jill Lepore, EUR 8.32
