blah blah blah

Meh.  You're silly and not worth bothering with.
Get over yourself maybe? This discussion isn't about you and me and considering that a risk which hasn't been quantified can't be considered "severe" isn't silly.
Just like drinking bleach isn't proven deadly yet. Nobody has experimented to prove it, so it must not be stated as the cause of death, because nobody knows that it was the bleach.

Actually, we have plenty of experiments showing that bleach is poisonous. We even know its ld50. We could also compile a number of events in which an individual swallowed bleach in their home and died as a result. Hence, having bleach at home IS a health hazard.

I wouldn't say having bleach at home poses a SEVERE health hazard though. Would you?

It was an example.

They've done similar such testing on batteries and determined they're a health hazard.
Why do you think lead cell batteries no longer exist? Because in the event of a crash, they're the most hazardous to your health.

Are you suggesting that the fire hazard associated with electric cars has been quantified? Because assuming it's at least quantified to make a comparaison with petroleum powered cars, I'd like you to provide the references Surdumil failed to provide.

You're full of bullshit.
You're also off-topic.

Can't argue with that, best references ever. Completely irrefutable.

Wait what? Lead cells are still used widely.

Hmm, I was unaware they were still in use, thought they'd been swapped out already.

As far as Australia goes, you cannot buy lead acid batteries for car s.

Not just older cars.

Basically anything that doesn't need to move or requires a lot of surge power uses them. They are quite frankly the best thing available what concerns capacity/cost as long as you can deal with the weight.

Also, it's not like ANY battery technology is environmentally friendly.

This is a discussion about vehicles. "Other things" that use batteries aren't included.
