The inevitable change will begin when used car buyers see electric cars as affordable alternatives to internal combustion power. Today, the optimal price for used car consumers appears to be around 5,995. For many of course, the affordability level is much lower.As of November 2019, there are approximately 1,500 used EV cars advertised for sale in the UK. Most are genuine used vehicles with only a few delivery mileage 19 plate vehicles. Advertised prices range from 1,200 for a G Wiz, with just 22,000 miles, all the way up to 98,000, for a 2017 Tesla model X with only 500 miles on the clock.
One fateful day in November 1988, a Cornell University student named Robert Morris changed the internet forever. In an effort to expose the security flaws of computer networks, he inadvertently created a worm that would shut down thousands of computers across the United States. Thanks to his mistake, antivirus tools are practically required, especially for PCs.SEE ALSO: Best antivirus software for Windows 10

Key point: The Cold War is full of examples of near nuclear disasters and those remain a threat today. What happens when you use the same satellites to control nuclear forces as well as conventional troops? Accidental nuclear war, that''s what could happen. That''s the warning by a Washington think tank, which argues that the U.S. is inviting nuclear war by using the same command and communications systems to oversee both nuclear and conventional forces. But such "dual use" systems risk an inadvertent nuclear war, because an attack on non nuclear assets, such as satellites or radars, could be perceived as an attempt to cripple America''s nuclear deterrent. The Trump administration''s draft nuclear policy already states that cyberattacks against America, or attacks on U.S. satellites, could constitute a strategic threat that merits a nuclear response. But this raises a problem called "nuclear entanglement," where the traditionally bright lines between nuclear and non nuclear systems become blurred. In a study earlier this year, the Carnegie Foundation for International Peace pointed out that Russia and China were guilty of entanglement. For example, Russia keeps nuclear submarines and bombers at the same bases as conventional ships and planes: thus a strike by conventional U.S. forces against conventional Russian forces the sort of operation common in World War II could be mistaken by Russia as an American strike on its nuclear forces, triggering Russian nuclear retaliation. China plans to attack American satellites to disable U.S. command systems and smart weapons that rely on satellite guidance, because China believes this to be a part of conventional warfare despite the Trump administration declaring otherwise. But a new Carnegie study says the U.S. is making the same mistake. "Starting in the last decade of the Cold War, the United States has increased reliance on dual use systems by assigning nonnuclear roles to C3I assets that used to be employed solely for nuclear operations," writes James Acton, co director of Carnegie''s Nuclear Policy Program. "Until the mid 1980s, for example, U.S. early warning satellites were used exclusively for detecting the launch of nuclear armed missiles. Today, they enable a variety of nonnuclear missions by, for example, providing cuing information for missile defenses involved in intercepting conventional ballistic missiles." The U.S. has also scrapped its Cold War land based communications systems for controlling nuclear forces. Which means that satellites have become virtually the only means for nuclear command and control, and those precious satellites are also handling non nuclear communications. Even as cyberwarfare and anti satellite weapons have emerged as major threats, U.S. satellite systems have become less redundant. In the 1980s and 1990s, the U.S. had two satellite based communication systems for nuclear weapons. "Today, the United States is in the process of deploying just four Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellites that will be the nation''s sole space based system for transmitting nuclear employment orders once legacy Milstar satellites have been retired," writes Acton. Similarly, one of two radio networks for communicating with nuclear missile submarines has been shut down. Acton explores several scenarios where the U.S. could overreact. "Russia might attack ground based or space based U.S. early warning assets to defeat European missile defenses that were proving effective in intercepting its nonnuclear missiles," he writes. "Washington might see such attacks, however, as preparations to ensure that limited nuclear strikes by Russia could penetrate the United States' homeland missile defenses." The U.S. fears that Russia could launch limited nuclear strikes to paint America into a corner, where it must either back down or risk escalating into full nuclear war. But Russia could attack dual use communications systems with the goal of disrupting the operations of U.S. conventional forces, which the U.S. might perceive as an attempt to cripple U.S. nuclear communications. These issues apply to a lesser extent to China, which knows (and the U.S. knows that China knows) that a Chinese first strike wouldn''t be powerful enough to prevent massive American retaliation. Still, a Chinese attack on, say, the Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radar system could be taken as the prelude to a Chinese nuclear strike.

Acton does point out that the U.S. reaction will depend to some extent on context, such as whether Russia has placed its nuclear forces on alert. But this is a slender reed on which to avoid nuclear destruction. Untangling nuclear entanglement will not be easy. Russia, China and the U.S. are likely to balk at the cost of separating their nuclear and non nuclear command and control systems and facilities. Nor are they like to accept limits on weapons that threaten an opponent''s command and control systems, even if those systems have a nuclear function. Acton does suggest a few mild measures to mitigate the problem, such as more resilient command and control systems, or small space based sensors useful for detecting ICBM launches, but not for conventional warfare. The Carnegie report is particularly significant for missile defense. The proliferation of conventional ballistic missile threats against targets like ports, airfields or ships at sea means that missiles and missile defense have become an integral part of conventional warfare. This in turn means that missile defense systems have become conventional targets. Yet to attack them as part of a conventional war means scaring your opponent into fearing that this is the opening salvo of a nuclear strike.
