Are You Ready For Biden’s
Ban On Gas-Powered Cars?

Original Article

In the next couple of months, the Environmental Protection Agency will issue new fuel economy standards that could be impossible for carmakers to meet – without going electric. That, at least, is what President Joe Biden’s EPA Administrator Michael Regan is indicating. In an interview with Bloomberg last week, Regan talked about imposing rules that meet “the urgency of the climate crisis,” and “did not rule out future emissions requirements that create a de facto ban on new conventional, gasoline-powered automobiles, like an explicit phase-out ordered by California Gov. Gavin Newsom.” Regan could, for example, require automakers to sell cars that

The Democrats have become the party of Magical can be any gender you imagine yourself to be, and mandating (OK, persondating) that you can only drive electric cars with a maximum 200-mile range in order to (maybe) bring down the amount of CO2 by .002%. I think I liked America better when you didn't have to be around crazy people if you didn't want to or be legally required to follow rules set up by crazy people AND forced to say you believed their craziness.

Always follow the money. Who is laying heavy bets on green alternative energy. As posters here have pointed out this is not about the climate, clean air or any of those things. Just as opposition voter id has nothing to do with fairness in voting. We must all learn to look for the man behind the screen.

The UK did a study to determine if going all electric by 2035 was feasible. They found out there wasn't enough lithium and mining in the world to make that happen. If I remember correctly the US is slightly larger than the United Kingdom so how is this going to work? A new battery source? Like ground unicorn horn? Bigfoot scat?

As stated above, follow the money, which leads to leftist tyrants. The dark, primary motivation for “zero emissions” is that elitists want cars off the road, and to cram the subjects into crowded cities.

The answer is simple - just put sails on cars. It works for boats. Instead of windmills that generate electricity, cut out the middleman. Of course, the closer you are to DC and all the hot air the better it will work.

Sigh. Once again, PLEASE, can someone point out the SPECIFIC language in our Constitution that empowers the *Federal* government to have such powers. It's conspicuously absent from my copy. And, hence, under the 10th Amendment, such efforts are illegal! "High crimes and misdemeanors" sounds about right. But then, the very existence of the federal EPA also constitutes such a violation. Foisted upon us by the loathsome Statist creep, Nixon. A Republicrat. Torches and pitchforks time.

There are some electric vehicles that can go 400 miles between charging, but like all electric vehicles, they're expensive. Volvo advertises it's new electric car, it looks nice, but it only has a range of 200 miles. Until there are as many charging stations as gas stations and until one can charge that vehicle as fast as one can put gas in the car, electric vehicles for me are out of the question.

The problem for Biden is that the cost of electric vehicles are so high that most of his voters will not be able to afford them. They showed one on TV the other day that when it hits the showrooms will MSRP out at $80,000.00. Besides what is Biden going to do with all the millions of gas powered vehicles now on the road?

#6, when I was an engineering grad student, working on hybrid electric vehicle design, the best known batteries at the time were the upbiquitous lead-acid batteries, still a staple, and nickel-cadmium batteries, which were used in some aircraft batteries because they are lighter for the power. A quick bit of research showed that the availability of nickel and cadmium to be mined would make it impossible to supply batteries for large scale hybrid electric vehicle development, let alone large scale electric vehicles. Since nickel-cadmium has been shown to have some significant technical drawbacks, lithium cells have become the primary battery technology being used, when cost is no limitation, and when weight must be minimized. When cost is important and weight less important, lead-acid batteries are still the choice. I use lead-acid batteries to store solar power for my remote mountain cabin in the southern Rockies. Limitations on raw materials is a very real issue in some of these pipe dream fantasies of the totalitarian left. Be worried that they aren't just after your cars to "save the planet". They are convinced that the root problem is too many people. And if you think they won't do something to "correct the problem", you have a very limited imagination.

#24 is correct. I am afraid we are governed by fools. There is not enough power available to go all-electric. Like other posters, I might consider an electric if it would go 500 miles and re-charge in ten minutes but not before, Back when I was racing sports cars, I would occasionally buy a lightweight aircraft battery from our local battery store. The guy that owned the store had outfitted a little Morris Minor with an electric motor and filled the back seat and trunk with car batteries. It ran but he told me he could only get a few miles before it needed a re-charge. This was 60 years ago and technology has certainly advanced but not enough for me yet.

Why Is Everyone Swallowing Biden’s Lies? 28 replies

How did this happen? How did the nation go in an instant from disbelieving every utterance of Donald Trump to robotically repeating — and acting on — every claim that falls out of Joe Biden’s mouth, no matter how disconnected from the truth? The most glaring example involves Biden’s fact-challenged tirade against Georgia’s new voting law. At his first and only press conference, Biden declared the state’s efforts to protect against voter fraud were worse than Jim Crow, “un-American,” “sick,” and “despicable.” (This was the same press conference where moments later Biden bragged about how much time he’s spent with China’s genocidal communist dictator before calling him “a smart, smart guy.”)

By far, the worst idea for a post-COVID-19 “reset” is the vaccine passport.

The FDA and the CDC have halted use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, a conventional one-shot anti-COVID-19 preventative, because a handful of people have had nasty side effects. Are they following the science, or something else? No one likes secondary effects of vaccines. It’s a big reason why nearly a third of all people refuse to take any vaccine. But in the case of the J&J vaccine, one possible secondary effect can be quite scary: A small number of people develop a rare form of blood clots. So how many? Six.

In 1928, during his first year of what became known as the Stalin era, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin issued his first five-year plan, a centralized economic blueprint that focused on industrialization and collectivism. In 2021, during his first year as president of the United States, Joe Biden introduced a $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan that both the White House and its cheerleaders have called “transformative.” History tells us Stalin’s plans were transformative, too. Before we go any further, we state here for the record that Biden is not Stalin. Not even close. Yet we see policy parallels that should make Americans
