Okay, so she did try to whitewash her accidental admission by switching it to “natural gas” – which is not much different, according to the climate mafia – at the last second. Still, General Motors (GM) spokesperson Kristin Zimmerman has become something of an internet sensation for letting the cat out of the bag that their new “electric” car is charged by a power plant that runs on coal, so basically, their new car at the moment would actually run on about 95 percent coal. During an unveiling of the new Chevy Volt, Zimmerman demonstrated for the media how the supposedly “green” vehicle...


“Electric cars should just be rebranded as coal cars,” “The important thing is that our government overlords keep subsidizing electric cars, even though this very high price subsidy will achieve only tiny emissions savings,” This is insane even do her first answer was a complete lie, the plant runs on 95% coal! I mean it’s leftist logic, it’s not supposed to make sense. I’m so sick of people thinking electric vehicles are better for the environment. Yeah, they themselves as they drive are better than regular vehicles but the thing is, the power for charging and where the battery material comes from. Especially lithium.

Coal fired cars. We need to focus on that whenever some zealot tries to sell EVs as "clean cars". No, they are not as clean as a gasoline powered car with catalysts and extremely efficient, clean, engine designs. EVs are a joke, and the joke's on us all, and our WALLETS.

She tried to put a positive spin on it by speculating natural gas as the local generating fuel. Well done to whoever spliced in the follow-up question to the Lansing Board of Water and Light official who matter-of-factly stated that their grid is, in fact, ~95% coal powered. This is great.

Where will you get your electricity at night and on cloudy days when the wind doesn’t blow? Is the plan to have to have coal and natural gas plants on standby when needed? It takes several days to fire them up so that’s a problem. Where are you going to get more and cheaper electricity? I saw a solar panel guy explain that solar economics are better with oil prices high. But that does not explain where the solar/wind energy will be obtained in the quantities needed. Also, what land mass is required to power the US with solar/wind when it is working? 100,000 square miles? The magic transition… to magic, by schmoe biday-windyatnight.

FTA "...Consequently, electric vehicles are nothing more than greenwashed virtue signaling tools to make climate fanatics feel as though they are better than everybody else." Well that about says it all. Why would you want to deliberately introduce so much inefficiency between the power source and the system being powered? CO2 is not a pollutant no matter what a bunch of lawyers and bureaucrats say. A few hundred ppm either ways is not going to change the climate. Only Dr. Evil can do that.

Electric cars like golf carts and the little electric trucks that haul injured football players of the field have their uses. A neighbor has a Nissan electric which she uses as a grocery getter, but that's it. She doesn't trust it farther than ten miles out and ten miles back especially when the airconditioner is needed and the headlights. I asked her about that and she said "I've learned the hard way" and walked away.

She starts with the standard airhead...."it comes from the building ", then he askes where the build fets their power, "....from Lansing Electric.....they are probably powered by......( horrible realisation) by (mumbling the bad word quietly) coal......they are heavily into natural gas." She lies, hopefully. Then the Lansing Electric guy says - "We are 95% coal powered." Coal powered cars... the EV. Not green at all, just expensive and inconvenient.

Electrical power plants are %33 efficient at converting the energy in fossil fuel to electricity. That 33% drops by another 7% on average due to transmission and distribution losses (up to 14%). Car chargers take that down another 25%-30%. Batter losses drop that at least another 12%, and the car itself is less than %40 efficient. At 14% efficiency, internal combustion automobiles are around twice as efficient as electric vehicles. So you pollute the air twice as much, burning twice as much fossil fuel to moving energy through a much more complex and inefficient system to drive from A to B. Brilliant. That solves everything.

Re#14, auto engines are far more efficient than your 14%, more like 30 to 35% efficient. Diesels, especially turbocharged large diesels are substantially more efficient than gasoline engines because of their very high compression ratios.

What? You don't have 8 hours to recharge your car to go 300 miles, or the $10K to redo your home to make it a charging station, not to mention the extra $20K for an electric car over a gas powered vehicle. I haven't seen any of the left actually driving EV's. I can't wait for farmer's experiences with the new EV pickups. Good luck with that!

The main problem with the Green Weenies is that they become so absorbed in the fantasy of a green world that they spend their college time carrying signs in demonstrations and are too stupid to understand anything presented in the science classes, if they bother to attend. This applies to new students as well as to older dummies like AOC, Algore, Jon Carry, Joe Biden, etc, etc.

More food for thought. You know all those taxes on gasoline? You don't currently pay the same taxes for the electricity you use to charge your EV. How long do you think that will last? Plus, the national grid will not accommodate the demand of a quick transition to EV's without a massive increase of coal fired plants. Not very environmentally friendly. What's the point then? The only solution is another 100 nuclear plants.

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) made a unanimous consent request on the House floor to bring up S. 4160 for a vote. S. 4160, which passed the Senate by a unanimous vote, would have allocated additional security for the justices’ family members. Despite McCarthy’s request, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats failed to comply with McCarthy’s proposal to bring the bill to vote.

It’s been almost two years since Pfizer and European drug company BioNTech said early data suggests the vaccine could be more than 90% effective. It was big news to kick off the week and it led to an immediate 15% surge in the company’s share price And yet, that same day, Pfizer’s CEO Albert Bourla filed to sell millions of dollars of his company’s stock, coincidentally profiting from this historic announcement. Indeed, Bourla sold 132,508 Pfizer shares at a price of $41.94, raking in $5.6 million. And another Pfizer insider, Executive Vice President Sally Susman, sold 43,662 shares at the same $41.94 price that Bourla sold at, netting more than $1.8 million.

The Major League Baseball (MLB) team posted a statement claiming a $50,000 commitment to Everytown for Gun Safety’s Support Fund, a pro-gun control advocacy group.

In other words, we’re capping the market for handguns,” Trudeau said. “People should be free to go to the supermarket, their school or their place of worship without fear.”

It wasn’t that long ago when the left’s narrative on ‘gay rights’ was simple, straightforward, and easy to support: Let’s all be tolerant of one another, live and let live, and don’t discriminate. Tolerance is, after all, one of the fundamental tenets of the philosophy which drove America’s founding. But as the saying goes, “give someone an inch and they’ll take a mile,” which is the situation in which we find ourselves today. The message of ‘tolerance’ eventually morphed into ‘acceptance.’ At some point late in the Obama Administration, our culture decided that it was inadequate to merely tolerate the shenanigans of the LGBTQ community, we needed to welcome them.

Speculation is rife concerning the possible presidential candidates representing the two major parties as the nation approaches the 2024 elections. Everyone has an opinion, and the pundits are competing in the expertise sweepstakes. What can we say with some degree of plausibility? The Democrat roster is, by all accounts, dramatically uninspiring. Biden, who speaks in tongues, is plainly beyond redeeming; the question is whether he will manage to survive the year, let alone stumble, lollop, and whiffle to the end of his first term. Kamala Harris belongs in vaudeville or farce, given her talent for provoking laughter. Both will have to be retired in favor of an electable candidate. But who?

I figured driving the brand-new Kia EV6 I'd rented would be a piece of cake. If, that is, the public-charging infrastructure cooperated. We wouldn't be the first to test it.
