Like so many things I think FQs post highlights the entire problem in a nutshell.
The question of trade offs. Because it’s plain obvious there is no solution to the entirety of the issue.

I have highlighted Norway before as having the largest EV fleet. This is the fact behind it though.

You could argue their government is doing something about climate change with its EVs. But the reality is contradictory to say the least.
To say our government is fighting CC but the reality is have we just not landed record amounts of coal?

On a personal level with regards to buying electric cars, solar panels, have said all along so what you will because it’s your money.

Ford cannot keep up with US demand for the F150 lighting. Currently hiring 400 extra workers.

Side note, no comments of the Government announcing incremental increases in allowing  power companies to line charges..

Pretty much hits low income, elderly , low ppl in a home households...
Oh and any household that has been consciously saving power..including those doing because we use so much bad fossil fuel.
 
And those who have laid out on solar panels, use carbon neural home heating, like wood fires ....

Complete swap around from .. think a labour party introduction of limits on line charges a few decades ago.

Very much a disincentive in long term to be energy conscious.

The chip shortage is really hampering not just Ford but most car makers at the moment.
Will be interesting to see how this affects the roll out of the F150.
Rivien has just had its 1st  trucks come off the assembly line. aswell. Amazing 4WD If these things live up to the hype there's a lot to look forward to. 0-100 kph in a ute will make the commute to site a lot more entertaining.
