I didn't ask for you to post a video, I asked you 5 questions.

Is it really that difficult to answer the questions I asked?
I had trouble searching for the original questions. Since you don't believe anything I say I thought this guy said it better than me. I agree with EVerything he says. I did eventually find the post. The video is my answer. However while helping a friend with his VW(about 40 years ago)we bent his driver's door backwards when his car's engine bay alit in his garage under his Dad's apartment building. I don't remember how we put it out. I have noticed myrid roadside car fires. None EV.

I would be interested to see if anyone makes a battery enclosure that is sealed with a little bit of air space and has a way to give it some air in a controlled condition.
Probably not, it needs cooling, tesla uses different approach, their cybertruck has a mode where battery is pressurized so no water comes in, this is for crossing small rivers, lakes, or streams

I shorted out an A123 26650 by damaging it during salvaging an old pack. These small batteries can almost instantly overheat when shorted putting out hundreds of amps and ruining the cell and possibly your device. Submerging a lithium battery in water can cause the battery to discharge unintentionally and potentially damage it. Lithium reacts with water to form lithium hydroxide and hydrogen, which is highly flammable. This reaction can cause a short circuit, leading to immediate damage, overheating, and potential fire or explosion. Water can also corrode or damage the internal battery safety devices. I didn't want to try to salvage the overheated battery so I put it in a bucket of water for weeks. Nothing happened. I was tempted to smash it but I didn't want to lose a body part.

I'll attach the questions here, again.

5 very simple questions for you to answer.

Some video you posted does NOT answer the simple questions I asked.

Unfortunately if you're expecting a single-minded fanatic to give you a direct answer to a direct question.... That's going to be a very long wait.
There has been the occasional slip-up when pressed on the moral issues of individual rights where a somewhat direct answer was given. The motives are quite clear.

Yep, which is exactly why I continue to ask, and refuse to let him off the hook.

You have to expose the wackos for what they are, Wackos!

5 South Korean Government. This is where the LGChem batteries used in the Chevy Bolt come from and outlined in the Electric Viking's informational video. I just Googled this knowledge. I have yet to see an EV fire (as they are so rare)but in my life I have seen many VW busses burn.(Air-cooled) Here is what works to suppress EV fires.

you once asked me where is there a reliable news source.
Today I heard of a story where a zoo in China is painting dogs to look like pandas. An internet search reveals dozens and dozens of so called reliable news sources accusing the zoo of that. Some even providing methods of how it can be done.

Yet another minute of searching revealed there is actually a breed of panda dogs.
And that is what they have at that zoo.

You simply don't know the damage to the environment you are doing and the savings you're missing out on. We have a fully electric house with two electric vehicles. We traveled 12,000 miles and heated the house and made hot water. All household functions with no fossil fuel. We have owned a 2.4kw solar system for 20 years. Last year our total energy bill was $550.00. We now have a Tesla III and a Leaf. Will replace Leaf with a Model Y. Looking to add a battery and more solar capacity.
I wish marxist propaganda be forbidden. Make an F-ing guess who has payed for your "green" discounts. Only marxists may enjoy robbing other people and be stupid enough as praising about that.
