It’s Time To Admit It: EVs Are EVIL

Original Article

Posted By: RockyTCB, 3/2/2023 4:49:25 AM

We’ve had enough of the left’s guilt-tripping anyone who drives a gasoline-powered car. If anyone should be ashamed, it is those who are smugly plugging in their cars each night. They are the ones responsible for raping the planet, poisoning entire communities, enriching genocidal tyrants, and creating a massive hazmat problem while doing nothing to stop “climate change.” Does that sound harsh? Here’s one recent bit of evidence. A Bloomberg investigation found that the aluminum Ford is using to build its “eco-friendly” EV pickup comes from Brazil. “There, in the heart of the Amazon,

This is a great article, but common sense has long sinse told us that EVs were unsustainable.

Omg, evil? Oh please. Summary: the companies mining for materials are doing a bad job of environmental management and screwing up the nearby water ways and making people sick. And EVs push co2 production from the car to the power plant. The first happens all the time and is not magically specific to EV. The second is obvious to anyone that power isn't free and has to be produced -somewhere-. EVs are not eeevvvvuuuulllll! They are a different and optional transport technology with various pluses and minuses compared to current ICE stabdard vehicles. No more. No less. The problem is the government trying to force them down everyone's throats. EVs are not eeeevvvvuuulllll! The government is. EVs have a place in the world. ICE have a place in the world. The government making that choice for citizens does not have a place in the world. Keep the focus where it belongs, the government forcing them by mandates, not on a technology that's existed for a hundred years. If the government wasn't mandating them then no one would care about EVs.

EV's are just a toy for the wealthy as who else can afford them? The ultra rich always need a diversion from their bordom and now they can even get a sizeable "rebate" while EV manufacturers raise the price of their cars in comparison. What a sick joke it all is because all of this is also pushing inflation in all other areas the rest of hard working taxpayers deal with. When I tried to point out & question how the production of these vehicles needing such "super" batteries was helping the environment I was met with such liberal outrage I kept it to myself! You know- just casual questions as who was mining for the lithium in African mines and where else could the components be found and at what cost - and don't even mention disposal of EV components as that's a liberal no-no as they roll along going from charging station to charging station provided by electricity generated by good old resources.

EVs are not "sustainable". EVs are not even possible. In as much as the metals and rare earths necessary to make them in the quantities required do not even physically exist on the planet. So, if EVs are not a "solution", what are they? EVs are a distraction. EVs are they "shiny object" your "betters" hope to hold your attention while they outlaw your ICE car. They hope that by the time you figure it out you'll be a serf in your apartment. Apartment not house. You will own nothing, and be happy. (or else)

“EV’s have a place in the world”. Yes, in the history books with other products that failed the truest of the marketplace like Beta tapes. Seeing as how in the 19th century, EV lost out to the FAR SUPERIOR energy transfer application of ICE mobility, we all should recognize EV’s as the luxury golf carts that they are.

The Ford "Lightning" Pick up truck . $90,000 dollars and totally useless as a truck. It won't take the load, you cannot pull a trailer. You can load it you can pull the trailer for a block or so, but it simply does not work, which is why most of us buy a pick up to get work out of it.

5, that's for the market to determine. Not the government. So tiresome seeing people up in arms about a random technology instead of the government mandates about them. No one would care if not for government mandates. Stay focused on the real issue: government.

And another issue that almost always goes unchallenged; why are we trying to eliminate carbon (“net zero”) and more specifically CO2? All life on earth is carbon based, correct? We humans are around 20% carbon. Plant life will die without CO2 and all life will die without plants. Current atmospheric CO2 is actually very low. Almost all plants would thrive if it was triple or quadruple (1200-1600ppm) what it is now (400ppm) and that would have no effect on “climate change” or would adversely affect human or other animal life.

9, yes, that's -exactly- the point. The government is mandating them and providing your money as a tax break. Don't hate the player, hate the game. The game is the government forcing this on us. EV is just a random technology. Let the market decide. And yes I agree, without mandates and tax breaks they would always be a niche product and there is nothing wrong with that. They should not be forced on us nor should they be banned and flagged as "eeeevvvvuuullll!!!1111". It's just a technology choice, suitable for some tasks and not others.

Every day it gets more difficult to ignore just how odious the political left in this country is. In case we needed a reminder – we didn’t – another instance of the progressives’ deranged minds landed last week: The Biden administration is, in effect, coming after air conditioners. No, it doesn’t appear that the White House is planning to outright ban air conditioning. But a recent round of rule making at the Energy Department will make new window units less efficient at cooling and more expensive to buy, which will create hardships for the millions of poor Americans who use them to

In recent decades, Americans have shown strong support for the idea of free trade, based on the belief that they would benefit as much as or more than our trading partners did. But in recent years, as trade and geopolitical conflict with China grew and economic growth slowed, Americans’ support for free trade has waned, as the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows. Given recent public debates over trade, the online I&I/TIPP Poll of 1,358 adults, taken from March 1-3, asked Americans three questions about current trade policy proposals. All come from recent proposals made by former President Donald Trump, as he presumably moves to run again for the presidency in 2024.
EVs Are The Yugo Of The 21st Century 36 replies

Way back in the mid-1980s, communist Yugoslavia exported the Yugo, a compact car that sold for around $4,000. It was so poorly made that bumping into a pole at 5 mph could total it. Fast forward to today, and a new class of cars has a similar problem. A minor accident can cause a total loss, even if the car’s been driven only a few miles. The only difference is that these cars aren’t cheap imports from some godforsaken socialist state. These are state-of-art electric vehicles that come with an average sticker price of $55,000. Why are insurance companies totaling low-mileage EVs that have been in a fender bender?

"The U.S. banking system is sound and resilient,” Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell said on Wednesday in an effort to calm depositors worried about more bank failures. That was the same day the Fed raised interest rates another quarter point to deal with inflation that has been running at four-decade highs for nearly two years. The two problems, along with so many others that families are confronting right now, have a common cause: President Joe Biden’s disastrous economic policies. While another banking crisis might have been contained – a reassurance we take with a grain of salt – the Biden crisis will continue to metastasize

In recent years, the U.S. has suffered recurring banking crises almost like clockwork. Indeed, about every 10 years or so we seem to go through another financial panic, only to be followed by a spate of bad regulations passed to ensure “it won’t happen again.” But it always does. So how do we end this cycle? U.S. banking disasters plagued the late 20th century and early 21st century. But of course they go back long before even that, to 1907 and 1929, as two examples. More recently, there was the 1980s and ’90s savings and loan crisis, the 1998 collapse of Long-Term Capital Management and global crisis, the 2007 financial crisis

How did the administration pull off this “plunge”? Basically, by narrowing the focus and by redefining what counts as an illegal border crossing.
