    So if I go to that places in the world, their oxygen level is lower than ours in Nebraska, at similar altitudes?

    Is there data to support this assertion?

    I'm not sure what point he is trying to make. If you lock yourself in a sealed box, CO2 builds up? This is hardly unexpected. Put a plastic bag over your head and you will suffocate quickly. Also an expected outcome.

    Didn't watch the video, but if CO2 levels keep rising, we'll have Idiocracy without the breeding.

    O4 is an unstable form of oxygen known as tetraoxygen. However, I am not sure what that has to do with Toyota or electric cars.

    Circuits exposed to air in a hybrid could produce ozone.

    Hi Andypruis1! You will find that driving a pure BEV is much easier than you may think. There is an old saying that 90% of EV drivers do 90% of their charging -- at home. Really. You'll find that you have much more flexibility than most people fear. If you can rent or borrow a BEV, it becomes clear with experience...
