The Danger of EV Vehicles
There is more than one reason to abandon electric vehicles (EV), but here is just one to consider.
It has been suggested to us that in order to protect the earth from “climate change” and “global warming,” we must do rid of all gas-powered automobiles and, more recently, gas stoves. Is there any basis for this assertion? The obvious response to this question is “no.”
Consider, for example, the alleged height ranges. Whatever you may have heard about the range an electric vehicle (EV) can go on a single charge, during the winter season you should decrease that range in half to get a more realistic assessment. Then there is the load capacity and the towing capability, both of which have values that are exaggerated.
“…in the case of electric trucks, which, when utilised to accomplish the tasks that are expected of trucks, such as draw a trailer, are anticipated to do… Instead, they were merely told that it was capable of pulling a trailer that weighed 10,000 pounds, such as in the case of Ford’s F-150 Lightning electric truck. Which is a valid point. However, not for very long. Or more accurately, quite far,” Eric Peters Autos reports with regard to this fallacy.
“Omitted was the essential element that if they attempted to really tow a trailer, they would be stopping for a lengthy recharge around every 80 miles,” which means that this statement is misleading. They were also informed that they could recharge their devices at home, which is another fact that is accurate. “As far as it can possibly go.”
“However, nobody informed them how incredibly lengthy that process takes. They were, however, given the impression that they may resume their journey in around thirty to forty-five minutes. However, you can only accomplish this by going to locations that have so-called “fast chargers,” which are not located in homes.
EVs are filthy, harmful, and unreliable: why does the green cult adore them again?
In an article that he penned for the publication American Thinker, Jerome Corsi discussed this topic as well. He made the point that switching to electric vehicles is not economically possible.
Instead of being motivated by pragmatism or what he refers to as “logical economic calculation,” the whole push for electric vehicles is motivated by ideology. This is one of the reasons why six Wyoming state senators and two representatives have proposed a measure that would make it illegal to sell electric vehicles anywhere in the state of Wyoming by the year 2035.
According to Senate Joint Resolution No. SJ004, “Wyoming’s vast stretches of highway, coupled with a lack of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, makes it impractical for the state to use electric vehicles on a widespread basis.” The resolution goes on to say that “the batteries used in electric vehicles contain critical minerals whose domestic supply is limited and at risk of disruption.”
Should left-wingers committed to green causes ever effectively restrict the sale of gas-powered cars, especially if the ban encompasses industrial and commercial vehicles, there are huge safety and reliability concerns to consider as well. What happens if an electric vehicle (EV) tractor-trailer breaks down on the side of the road in the middle of a snowstorm in the middle of nowhere? What will happen to the driver and the weight he is carrying?
The same proposed legislation in Wyoming warns that electric vehicle batteries “are not easily recyclable or disposable.” This means that landfills in Wyoming and elsewhere will be required to develop practises to dispose of these minerals in a safe and responsible manner. Additionally, there are the environmental implications of continuing to have child slave labourers dig up all of the rare-earth minerals that are needed to produce EV batteries.
Last but not least, where is all of this additional power going to come from so that these gadgets can be charged? Because the current setup is inadequate even for the amounts of EVs that are now on the road, several states are already experiencing issues with their electric infrastructure during specific periods of the year. These problems are affecting certain states at various seasons of the year. What will happen when every single vehicle in the country is an electric vehicle?
In the final anyalises, they want us to all live in cities and travel very limited distances.
The one I use for working is a Ford-C-Max Energy… and you are right. It does nothing when it comes to saving gas because it only does 20 miles on a charge. I put a minimum of 400 miles a day showing properties, and it will take 5 hours to completely charge the battery. This means more work for me at the end of the day, having to remember to connect the vehicle to the charger, so it charges during the night, consuming energy, so the next day, It only does 20 miles, before it turns into the gas engine. It was an expensive vehicle because I asked them to add more things from the factory… bottom line, it is time to get rid of it and get me a Toyota.
