    China is investing alot in new Nuclear Plants which offers opportunities for overnight electric recharging and as the biggest maker of Solar panels they are pushing renewables hard. They are coming from the stage of the early stages of LA smog levels. Note E-cars sold well during the smog alerts as car use restrictions do not apply to electric. The big issue is most live in Apartments so how do you recharge cars that part on streets? Could see battery replacement “petrol stations”. Beijing wants to close down the local coal power plants and leave the rest.

    Just came across the Ernie Brink interview from 2012. He had some great mods for the Rotary engine. You should send the video to Robert Davis.
