Fake Minced Meat May Substantiate Base Reality Claim

March 2nd, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

This stuff looks and feels like meat to a degree that kind of scares me. There are even fine specks of white fatty bits in it, from coconut oil I guess. And by now, thoughts start bothering me about why this product has to be like the real thing? What is real anyway?


Denmark To Test Hydrogen Buses — But Why?

February 22nd, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

The northern region of Denmark has ordered 3 hydrogen fuel cell powered buses, at an expected price tag of almost $1 million each. In itself that is a very high cost compared to a standard Chinese BYD K9 electric bus at about $500,000, but what strikes me more is the chosen headline in the country's respected national news media: "The future is here: the country's first hydrogen buses are coming."

The Danish Association of EV owners, FDEL, had arranged a day trip through 5 major cities in the country with the new Nissan Leaf, giving the most curious of us a chance to see the car up close before official release


Faster E-Bikes In Danish Bike Lanes: Green Bliss Or Split Skulls?

February 15th, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

Today, the Danish Road Safety Agency released a draft for a trial on letting so-called Speed Pedelecs use bike lanes in the country. Speed Pedelecs are able to reach a motor-assisted top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph) as opposed to standard Pedelec e-bikes that can go 25 km/h (15 mph)

Chief engineer and founder of Podbike Per Hassel Sørensen assures us that this is a bike, even if it looks like a car. He says it's a 4-wheel electric bike with features not found in any other bike.


EV Sales In Denmark In 2017 Were A Joke — 698 Total

January 26th, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

While Norway can be the proud of record-breaking 21% all-electric new car sales, Denmark is falling shamefully behind. One political blunder after the other has killed the EV market in the country, like the recent lowering of taxes on fossil fuel cars


Africa Has S***loads Of Resources — Trump May Have Provoked The World’s 2nd Largest Continent To Detach Itself From The Old World

January 18th, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

Anyone who knows me — or has read my resume below — will understand why I have to comment on the horrendous outburst by the President of the United States on January 11th. I heard Jesse Watters on Fox News explain that the s***hole remarks were just harmless bar talk, but if we can agree that the White House is in fact the office of the most powerful administration in the world — and not a bar — then the following will make sense. If you think the White House is in fact a bar, you have nothing to worry about and I would suggest you stop reading further


9 Down, 1 To Go — A Personal Tale Of 7 Years With Electric Cars

January 14th, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

My lease is up. My BMW i3 — my snappy and ugly duckling — has been returned to AVIS. There was a waiting line, so no chance of extending the lease. I have a reservation for the Tesla Model 3 due to be delivered by the end of the year. So, while I ponder on what to do next, let me recap which EVs I have experienced in the last 7 years. Luckily I have a bunch of electric bikes (some hand-built) that I can ride in the meantime, and I promise you they are nothing you would expect — but that's another story
