Yep. Electric cars saving the planet is a massive fallacy promoted by
dimwits and money-grubbing band-wagon-jumpers. They are not any better,
and in some ways worse, than normal petrol and diesel cars.
Even if that were true, which it is not, electric cars would retain one
absolutely critical advantage: their fuel won't be ridiculously
expensive in less than 20 years and gone in 50.
Nope. Instead the electric cars sold new are ridiculous expensive now
(especially when tax-payer "subsidies" aren't available, in which case
you're basically paying the extra over your entire working life), and
the cars sold second-hand *will* need ridiculously expensive battery
And with regard to disposal, those old batteries are almost as bad for the
environment as nuclear waste.
It's bad enough now when those cars are little more than novelties for the
idle rich, but multiply them by 20 million as Emperor Newsom wants to do by
banning gas-powered cars, and you'll have battery disposal sites that will
make your skin melt.
And mining the minerals for those batteries is also a highly toxic
environmental nightmare. There are mines in Canada where the landscape
looks like the surface of the moon.
Anyone who thinks electric cars will save the environment is as delusional
Newsom can't even keep the lights on in California right now. The state is
literally running out of electricity every other day and blacking out
sections of the grid one by one. Imagine 20 million people plugging their
cars in all at once on top of that.
Plus they have to cut the power off every time the wind blows now. Wouldn't
that be a helluva thing... your house is about to burn down from a wildfire
caused by Democrats' mismanagement of the forests, and you can't evacuate
because your car isn't charged because the state also turned your power off
because it was windy.
And even assuming they build out the recharging infrastructure to the point
where you can find a charging station in even the smallest towns and rural
highways like you can with gas pumps, how the hell are you supposed to
charge these things while on a trip when it takes hours to charge them? I
can pull into a gas station, fill the tank, and be on my way in five
minutes. With an electric car, a stop at a filling station could take the
better part of a day. That three hour drive from L.A. to Vegas will now
take eight hours or more, and that's assuming you can find an empty plug
and don't have to *also* wait in line for someone else's car to charge
before you can even get started.
And all for a bunch of political virtue signaling that won't have any
effect on global warming at all.
