(Video) Green energy is a long ways from becoming mainstream . . .
I read on another board that a recent Bloomberg article said an estimated 171,500 electric car fires took place annually in the U.S. over a recent three-year period.

I wasn't able to verify that, but here's more food for thought.

A battery fire in a car can reach 5,000 degrees fahrenheit and putting water to it can cause an explosion. There is no way to gauge how much energy is still in a battery once the fire is out. Consequently the fire can reignite on its own a few days later.

Everything these days is becoming battery powered. Storage batteries are being installed in homes. Tools are battery powered. What happens when your battery powered lawn mower gets too hot and suddenly bursts into flames.

No problem, just get out the hose and water it down. And that's when it explodes.
