Electric Cars Are Worse for Environment

The Biden Regime is defying the Supreme Court in its campaign to force us into expensive, unreliable, combustion-prone, inefficient electric cars. Whatever its motives, this is not about the environment, despite the pious rhetoric. Electric moonbatmobiles are more harmful to Mother Nature than proper cars:

[A] new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that electric vehicles are worse for the environment than gas-powered ones. By quantifying the externalities (both greenhouse gases and local air pollution) generated by driving these vehicles, the government subsidies on the purchase of EVs, and taxes on electric and/or gasoline miles, researchers found that “electric vehicles generate a negative environmental benefit of about -0.5 cents per mile relative to comparable gasoline vehicles (-1.5 cents per mile for vehicles driven outside metropolitan areas).”

Liberal readers should brace for a big surprise. The electricity to power their virtue-signaling Teslas does not come from pixie dust or slightly more viable renewable sources. It comes from the fossil fuels the Biden Regime is making so expensive.

“The comparison between a gasoline vehicle and an electric one is really a comparison between burning gasoline or a mix of coal and natural gas to move the vehicle,” according to The American Economic Review.

Good thing CO2 is only harmful in the alternate reality of moonbat ideology. However, making lithium-ion batteries really is bad for the planet. The batteries require lots of graphite from China…

Pollution can come “from graphite dust in the air, which is damaging whether inhaled or brought down to the earth in the rain,” a Bloomberg report found. More pollution results from the hydrochloric acid used to process mined graphite into a usable form. Hydrochloric acid is highly corrosive and can cause great environmental damage if leaked into groundwater or streams.

China’s communist rulers are no more worried about the environment than they are about human rights.

[T]he U.S. government’s EV subsidies end up subsidizing China’s highly polluted production. … We also know from past experiences that pollution in China ends up harming the rest of the world.

It seems our rulers don’t care about the environment any more than the ChiComs do. As if he were a dictator rather than a president, Biden has decreed by executive order that half of all new cars in truck sold in the USA by 2030 must be electric — on the preposterous grounds that this will improve the weather.

On a tip from Blackjack.
