Electric Cars for Everyone, so Rich People Can Get Richer

By October 4, 2023Commentary

Electric cars are 1) expensive, 2) not green in their entire lifecycle, 3) don’t get nearly the advertised range, 4) don’t have easy access to chargers, 5) have to be heavily subsidized to get people to buy them at all,  and 6) will cost even more to operate in future years as we switch to unreliable, high-cost renewable energy.  And they do weird things like burst into fire spontaneously.  Now electric car owners in the UK are learning that their car insurance bills are soaring to unimaginable heights.  Same thing is being seen in the US.  Voter revolt coming against the whole whacked environmental/climate hysteric agenda, which is funded by rich people who only care about getting richer through government subsidies and mandates.  (WUWT Post)

    I hope your right about the voter backlash. I increasingly think there is a real disconnect between what’s going on and who people vote for. I haven’t seen polling on the question lately, but I recall in the late 1980s and again prior to 1994, people hated congress . . . but liked their congressman. I’m not optimistic about the future.
