Senators Demand End Date for Normal Cars

As radically transformative as Biden’s handlers’ presidency has been already, some Senators push to make it still more irresponsibly extreme. They demand a date upon which we will not be allowed to buy efficient and affordable cars, after which we must drive overpriced moonbatmobiles so as to appease their bogus climate gods:

In a letter to be sent to Biden on Monday that was obtained by Reuters, Democratic Sens. Alex Padilla and Dianne Feinstein urge Biden to “follow California’s lead and set a date by which all new cars and passenger trucks sold be zero-emission vehicles.”

As goes California, land of the blackouts, so goes the nation — at least, so authoritarians hope.

In September, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced he would sign an executive order requiring sales of all new passenger vehicles to be zero-emission by 2035…

No wonder so many people are leaving California. Only in a dictatorship could a governor sign a piece of paper and transform transportation, costing society an incalculable sum of money in the name of a demented ideology.

We are asked to believe that forcing everyone to drive unaffordable electric vehicles — which are largely powered by electricity generated by burning coal — will somehow improve the weather by reducing use of fossil fuels. But despite Newsom’s delirious duckspeak about cars causing wildfires and rising sea levels via global warming, no evidence has been presented that banning them would have a measurable effect. It is all about symbolism and pandering to the maniacs comprising the Democrat base.

There are not enough raw materials to produce electric cars for everyone — even just in the UK:

Richard Herrington, the head of earth sciences at the Natural History Museum in London, and … his colleagues looked at the UK’s climate goals and the requirement that all its vehicles be converted to electricity by 2050. They found doing so would require two times the total annual world cobalt production, nearly the entire world production of neodymium, three quarters the world’s lithium production and at least half of the world’s copper production during 2018.

Nor will we have the electric capacity to power them, if Democrats continue their war on fossil fuels and nuclear energy. If electric cars are mandated, the price of electricity will be astronomical. Already it is more expensive to charge a Tesla than to gas up a normal car.

The objective is to deny the liberty of individual transportation to all but the rich. At best, they will let us travel by Zoox on days when there is enough wind to generate sufficient energy.
