The inconvenient truth of electric vehicles

By James Poplar

As someone who is retired and on a fixed income, I am often chided by my progressive friends for driving a truck that is twenty-five years old with close to 300,000 miles on the odometer.  The typical refrain is, why are you not driving an electric vehicle (E.V.) that is environmentally friendly, vice your clunker that contributes to global warming?  After all, it is "the right and responsible thing to do."

Yes, I believe that the future of private transportation lies in electric and in other alternative (perhaps hydrogen)–powered vehicles, but for a number of reasons, the timing is not yet right to have the government mandate that I and others own an E.V.

I offer the following rationale:

First, from a national security standpoint, China made a conscious decision years ago to dominate the market in E.V. battery production and technology.  This is the same country that makes no bones about surpassing the United States as the world superpower.  In addition, China has an abysmal human rights record — what other country harvests the organs from its political opposition?  Why would we as a nation want to put our own national security at risk in the hands of a nation determined to impose communism around the globe?

Second, currently, the materials used to manufacture E.V. batteries are typically mined in Africa by child labor under the harshest conditions imaginable.  Children are typically forced to sift through piles of material in an effort to secure the scarce materials (cobalt, lithium, and nickel) required for battery production.  Children as young as two years old transport, wash, and crush minerals to earn half a dollar a day.  The problem of child labor used to source E.V. battery materials has been known for several years, yet we look the other way.  In addition, the mining process in not environmentally friendly and in itself contributes to global warming.

Third, all E.V. batteries have a limited service life, at the end of which they must be disposed of in our landfills, as the recycling options, unlike with my petroleum-powered vehicle, are extremely limited.  Millions of electric car batteries will retire in the next decade.  What happens to them?

How do batteries not end up in a mountain of waste  and further contaminate the environment?

Fourth, even with government subsidies, E.V.s are expensive.  In rural America, the typical income is at or below the poverty level.  How can the masses afford an E.V. when they can hardly afford to eat?  Purchasing an E.V. or, for that matter, a newer gasoline vehicle is beyond the reach of most who live in "flyover country."

So are we ready to fully embrace E.V.s and put our conventional vehicles out to pasture?  For me, the answer is no.  Please convince me that I am off base..........

PROOF that 9/11 was controlled demolition. Yes, this happened.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYUYya6bPGw&t=15s

   

The University of Alaska engineering department did a four-year study of 47 story World Trade Center 7 skyscraper (the one the media did not cover and which was not hit by a plane) and concluded CONTROLLED DEMOLITION and the mainstream media did not even cover this. Make no mistake - we have been infiltrated and the media are controlled. 

MUST READING.

"The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building." - University of Alaska

Gen. Mike Flynn: ‘The Constitution Itself Is At Risk’, The Patriot Act Must Be ‘Constantly Reviewed’ Or ‘Removed’

“Nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately, and they should have,” Trump cautioned when asked about 9/11 on Thursday (July 28, 2022).

It remains unclear whether 9/11 was a ploy to usher a mechanism to eradicate American civil liberty, but “the weaponization of levers of power in the United States of America are very real,” Flynn admonished.

The FBI committed Third degree grand theft which is a third degree felony, which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and $5,000 in fines.

This is a both a provocation and evil bait I hope Trump doesn't take. Cool heads prevail and we want nothing more than to get these bastards.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
