EVER WONDER WHY OUR LEFTIST GOVERNMENT IS INTENT ON PUTTING US IN ELECTRIC CARS?

Written by Lehr and Harris

The Dem/Prog Biden administration may be judged evil as it relates to virtually all of its new energy directives, which are in accordance with its top-down PLAN. 

.

The underlying purpose of everything it does is to use control of the federal government to reduce our freedoms and increase centralized command/control over our lives.

 .

PART 1

One of administration strategies has escaped even the most conservative of thinkers. It is the promotion of electric cars. They well know, as we will show in the following paragraphs, that the nation’s roads can never be crowded with electric cars.

.

There is not now, nor ever will there be, sufficient electric power for us to travel hither and yon with battery-powered vehicles.

.

So, who, up high, decides who gets what electricity, and at what time, and at what price?

.

Answer: your friendly Dem/Prog government who we, mistakenly or not, have placed in power.

.

The electric vehicle (EV) is clearly one of the most hyped innovations of our lifetime. While our federal government and the state of California think that the internal combustion engine will soon end up in the dustbin of history, it just isn’t going to happen for a variety of reasons:

.

1) The most obvious is that the expense of EVs will not allow the average American to own one. The fossil fuel alternative a) will always be far cheaper, and b) will transport you much farther on a tankful, and c) will reliably get you to you destination in a reasonable time

.

2) EVs can never be produced in the numbers the government wants, because of a lack of necessary rare earth minerals held hostage in China.

.

3) Availability of charging stations will never be adequate either. And the time required to recharge on a long trip will make you cancel any long trip.

.

4) The cost of a battery replacement will be a significant turn-off as well.

.

Okay, maybe these are not so obvious to the general consumer. But here are the even less obvious deterrents.

.

If, after reading these reasons for electric misery, you still remain a big fan, write us and explain why. We will then write another article explaining your point of view.

.

TESLA

.

Let’s first get Elon Musk and Tesla out of the way. While in the past year, he did make many cars in the $55,000 (Model 3) to $60,000 (model Y) range and hopes to keep expanding those numbers, Tesla will likely remain a car for higher-income households

The eye-catching models X, a medium SUV, and model S, a not-quite, full-size sedan, are around $100,000 and up

.

In California, the average household income of EV purchasers is upwards of $200,000. If you are not in that higher-income bracket, you will likely not have much of an appetite for an EV.

.

Nevertheless, Musk will always be successful, because he really is the smartest person in the room. He is now vastly rich because so many people know that he is smart, and buy his Teslas at nonsensical prices

.

AVAILABLE ELECTRICITY

.

The Laurence Livermore Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy states that the annual energy fed to US electrical generation plants is about 11.4 trillion kWh, which feeds about 4.0 trillion kWh into the US grid.

The annual energy fed to transportation sector is equivalent to about 8.5 trillion kWh, of which an infinitesimal fraction is fed to electric vehicles.

.

Where would the additional power come from, and what would the distribution system look like, if all cars were electric?

.

The current administration plans to produce less electricity from oil, natural gas, coal, or nuclear, and wants to produce more electricity from wind and solar, which currently produce about 10% of 4 trillion kWh, or 0.4 trillion kWh

.

Where and how will we build enough solar and wind installations to keep us all driving EVs? We cannot.

.

We have neither the economic resources, nor land area, to even consider this. We are already getting a preview of what will happen if our vehicles go all-electric.

.

In the U.K., the grid is currently so unstable that EV chargers will be metered separately, which allows them to be charged and taxed at a higher rate than domestic electricity.

.

It is important to also note that, California, where half of the nation’s EVs are located, already imports more electricity than any other state– , currently at 32% from the Northwest and Southwest, and has dysfunctional HOPES that nearby states will be able to generate enough power to meet the electrical demands of the California in the future.

.

RANGE

.

Just as golf carts may be fun and legal to run around your neighborhood, if you so are inclined, so are electric cars. However, what would it take to carry out a long trip in one?

.

Let’s run through the numbers.

We will go first class in a Tesla on a trip of 270 miles, which only a Tesla can do on a single charge.

It will take about 4.5 hours to drive 270 miles to arrive at our destination

Before going back, it would take about about 1.5 to 2.0 hours at a super-charging station, to recharge the battery to about 80% full, because such stations do not give you a full charge; frequently charging from 80% full to 100% full permanently damages your battery.

That means you might have to stop, while partway back, for an additional charge, to get home.

.

You need to adequately plan your whole trip to avoid “range anxiety”

.

MILES PER GALLON

.

Miles per gallon is disappearing as an advantage when buying an EV. The reason is that, in order to increase the range of the EVs, a great deal of extra weight in batteries had to be added. That effectively cancels any claims of yielding less carbon dioxide, supposedly the primary selling point for them. After all, the production of these batteries generates huge amounts of CO2.  

.

And back at the power station, where the electricity for your EV is generated, someone is burning a lot of coal or natural gas to create it.

.

Perhaps your electric car should more accurately be called a coal or natural gas powered car.

.

At present, the tax on your gasoline keeps our roads maintained.

It will gradually be replaced by a special tax on electric vehicles, to be paid at time of registration, to ensure EV drivers pay for road maintenance.

.

COLD CLIMATES

.

The nature of batteries is that they yield less energy/second in cold climates, I.e., they are sluggish going uphill, on snow/ice-covered dirt roads, and use much more energy per mile.

As EV owners in colder climates multiply, all this will soon become familiar

Advertised ranges, based on the battery going from 100% full to 0% full, will not be achieved, even under the most favorable circumstances 

The performance shortfall will be significant, especially on colder days combined with other adverse conditions.

Get ready for thousands of motorists stranded on freezing cold highways throughout the northern states.

A bonanza for tow trucks.

.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING

.

President Biden and the Governor of California are demanding only electric cars in the nation and their state, by 2035, just as Vermont.

.

California plans to have 25 million EVs in the not-too-distant future.

It already has 50% of the nation’s EVs.

But California is not a meaningful role model for the nation at large.

Besides having the best temperate climate in America, it has an average household income of $106,916, and 12.2% of households make over $200,000 a year. In addition, they have an unusual fraction of the population that:

.

1) Are mostly highly educated.

2) Are mostly highly compensated.

3) Have for travel requirements of about 5,000 miles per year, for longer trips, with significant passenger load and cargo, a combustion engine car.

4) Have a multiple-car garage for convenient charging. However, some manufacturers, including General Motors, are recommending EV’s should be charged in open areas, away from the house, due to potential battery fires.

.

Except for those in that higher- income range of society, there will clearly be no appetite for an EV in the foreseeable future.

.

As a recap, PART 1 was on the problems with electric vehicles (EVs). We showed they were 1) too expensive, 2) too unreliable, 3) rely on materials mined in China and other unfriendly countries, and 4) require more electricity than the nation can afford.

Part 2

We address other factors that will make any sensible reader avoid EVs like the plague.

EV Charging Insanity

In order to match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in a busy 12 hours, an EV charging station would require

1) About 600, 50-watt chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million

2) A supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid. That is enough to power 20,000 homes.

No one likely thinks about the fact it can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to recharge a vehicle between empty or just topping off. What are the drivers doing during that time?

ICSC-Canada board member New Zealand-based consulting engineer Bryan Leyland describes why installing electric car charging stations in a city is impractical:

.

If you’ve got cars coming into a petrol station, they would stay for an average of five minutes.

If you’ve got cars coming into an electric charging station, they would be at least 30 minutes, possibly an hour, but let’s say its 30 minutes.

So that’s six times the surface area to park the cars while they’re being charged.

So, multiply every petrol station in a city by six. Where are you going to find the place to put them?

.

The government of the United Kingdom is already starting to plan for power shortages caused by the charging of thousands of EVs. Starting in June 2022, the government will restrict the time of day you can charge your EV battery. To do this, they will employ smart meters that are programmed to automatically switch off EV charging in peak time....

In particular, the latest UK chargers will be pre-set to not function during 9-hours of peak loads, from 8 am to 11 am (3-hours), and 4 pm to 10 pm (6-hours).

Unbelievably, the UK technology decides when and if an EV can be charged, and even allows EV batteries to be drained into the UK grid if required.

Imagine charging your car all night only to discover in the morning that your battery is flat, since the state took the power back.

Better keep your gas-powered car as a reliable and immediately available backup!

While EV charging will be an attractive source of revenue generation for the government, American citizens will be up in arms.

Used Car Market

The average used EV will need a new battery before an owner can sell it, pricing them well above used internal combustion cars.

The average age of an American car on the road is 12 years.

A 12-year-old EV will be on its third battery.

A Tesla battery typically costs $10,000 so there will not be many 12-year-old EVs on the road.

Good luck trying to sell your used green fairy tale electric car!

 .

True Story

 .

Tuomas Katainen, an enterprising Finish Tesla owner, had an imaginative solution to the battery replacement problem—he blew up his car!

New York City-based Insider magazine reported (December 27, 2021):

“The shop told him the faulty battery needed to be replaced, at a cost of about $22,000. In addition to the hefty fee, the work would need to be authorized by Tesla…Rather than shell out half the cost of a new Tesla to fix an old one, Katainen decided to do something different… The demolition experts from the YouTube channel Pommijätkät (Bomb Dudes) strapped 66 pounds of high explosives to the car and surrounded the area with slow-motion cameras…the 14 hotdog-shaped charges erupt into a blinding ball of fire, sending a massive shockwave rippling out from the car…The videos of the explosion have a combined 5 million views.”

We understand that the standard Tesla warranty does not cover “damage resulting from intentional actions,” like blowing the car up for a YouTube video. 

EVs Per Block in Your Neighborhood

A home charging system for a Tesla requires a 75-amp service. The average house is equipped with 100-amp service. On most suburban streets the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla. For half the homes on your block to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly overloaded.

Batteries

Although the modern lithium-ion battery is four times better than the old lead-acid battery, gasoline holds 80 times the energy density.

The great lithium battery in your cell phone weighs less than an ounce while the Tesla battery weighs 1,000 pounds. And what do we get for this huge cost and weight? We get a car that is far less convenient and less useful than cars powered by internal combustion engines. Bryan Leyland explained why:

“When the Model T came out, it was a dramatic improvement on the horse and cart. The electric car is a step backward into the equivalence of an ordinary car with a tiny petrol tank that takes half an hour to fill. It offers nothing in the way of convenience or extra facilities.”

Our Conclusion

The electric automobile will always be around in a niche market likely never exceeding 10% of the cars on the road. All automobile manufacturers are investing in their output and all will be disappointed in their sales. Perhaps they know this and will manufacture just what they know they can sell. This is certainly not what President Biden or California Governor Newsom are dreaming about.

However, for as long as the present government is in power, they will be pushing the electric car as another means to run our lives. We have a chance to tell them exactly what we think of their expensive and dangerous plans when we go to the polls in November of 2022.

APPENDIX 1

 

Batteries, they do not make electricity.

They store electricity that is produced elsewhere, primarily by coal, uranium, natural gas-powered plants, or diesel-fueled generators.

So, to say an EV is a zero-emission vehicle is not valid.

https://gab.com/TheRISEofROD/posts/107958590257822568

Because about 30% of the US electricity generated by coal-fired plants, EVs on US roads are 30% coal-powered!

Let us take a closer look at EV batteries and solar panels and wind turbines

https://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/battery-system-capital...

 

EVs

 

A typical EV battery pack weighs about 1000 lb, including:

 

25 lb of lithium

60 lb of nickel

44 lb of manganese

30 lb cobalt

200 lb of copper

400 lb of aluminum, steel, and plastic.

Inside the battery pack are over 6,000 individual lithium-ion cells.

To manufacture each EV battery pack, you must process:

 

25,000 lb of brine for the lithium

30,000 lb of ore for the cobalt

5,000 lb of ore for the nickel

25,000 lb of ore for copper

All told, you dig up 500,000 pounds of the earth's crust for one battery pack.

Solar Panels


The main problem with solar arrays is the chemicals needed to process silicate into the silicon used in the panels.

 

To make pure enough silicon requires processing it with hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, hydrogen fluoride, trichloroethane, and acetone.

 

In addition, the panels also need gallium, arsenide, copper-indium-gallium- diselenide, and cadmium-telluride, which also are highly toxic.

 

Silicon dust is a hazard to the workers, and the panels cannot be recycled.

Wind Turbines

 

Wind turbines are the ultimate in embedded costs and environmental destruction.

Each wind turbine weighs 1688 tons (the equivalent of 23 houses) and contains 1300 tons of concrete, 295 tons of steel, 48 tons of iron, 24 tons of fiberglass, and the hard-to-extract rare earths neodymium, praseodymium, and dysprosium.

Each blade weighs 81,000 pounds and will last 15 to 20 years, at which time it must be replaced.

We cannot recycle used blades.

Conclusion

 

There may be a place for these technologies, but you must look beyond the myth of zero emissions.  

"Going Green" and “Net-Zero” may sound like the Utopian ideal, but when you look at the hidden and embedded costs with an open mind, you can see that “Going Green” and “Net-Zero” is a lot more destructive to the Earth's environment than meets the eye, for sure.

I'm not opposed to mining, electric vehicles, wind or solar.

I am in favor of showing the reality of the situation.

SHOCKING Reports Ukrainian Nazi Azov Battalion Setting Up Offensive Positions in Civilian Areas and Using Women and Children as “Human Shields” (VIDEOS)

By Julian Conradson 
Published March 20, 2022 at 6:10pm
1476 Comments

 

THIS ARTICLE HAS SEVERAL VIDEOS, WHICH I COULD NO DISPLAY HERE, BUT IF YOU CLICK ON THE URL YOU CAN LISTEN AND VIEW THEM. THEY TELL AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT STORY THAN IN THE MEDIA

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/03/shocking-citizens-claim-uk...

 

As Russia’s invasion intensifies, countless Ukrainians are being displaced from their homes and fleeing for their lives, but, according to some of them, it’s not necessarily just Russia that they are worried about.

It’s their own (Ukrainian) army.

No one is saying that these people wouldn’t be in danger if Putin had not decided to make his move into Ukraine, but nobody anticipated that Zelensky’s armed forces would be the ones terrorizing innocent civilians and refusing to allow them to flee the war zone, and that’s allegedly exactly what they are doing, some refugees have claimed.

Dozens of shocking video testimonials have emerged over the past few days alleging that Ukrainian soldiers, including the Nazi-aligned Azov Battalion, have been setting up offensive military positions within civilian areas, like neighborhoods and apartment buildings, to launch attacks on Russian troops – essentially using the citizens, including women and children, as “human shields” by guaranteeing return fire will hit populated areas.

This deplorable tactic is the same one that was used by Jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan that results in unnecessary civilian casualties.

Ukrainian refugees also claimed that the reports of safe passage zones are all a lie. Apparently, Zelensky’s forces have stopped providing transportation out of the country.

Ironically, it’s actually the Russians who are providing more humanitarian assistance than the Ukrainian troops, according to some who finally made it out of the conflict zone.

There were also some refugees who claimed that Ukrainian troops were threatening to shoot anyone who attempted to flee the area, which, according to two separate witness accounts, has already begun happening. However, this is still unconfirmed.

 

If Ukrainian armed forces are truly doing this to their own people, then Zelensky needs to be questioned about “war crimes” right along with Putin.

 

Mariupol, a port city on the AZOV Sea, is part of Donetsk, a Province in East Ukraine

 

The extreme-rightist AZOV Battalion started as a group of mercenaries, financed by a Ukrainian billionaire in 2014.

It was incorporated into the Ukraine Army, by Poroshenko, some years later.

https://www.dw.com/en/the-azov-battalion-extremists-defending-mariu...

 

The AZOV Battalion and pro-Kiev sympathizers have dominated the city government of Mariupol.

This is also true in other Ukraine cities.

THE WILL FIGHT TO THER DEATH AND WILL USE CIVILIANS AS HUMAN SHIELDS, AS SHOWN BY THE ARTICLE.

 

They control the Municipal elections and count the votes

They get money from Kiev (which Kiev gets from the US/EU) to build show projects, etc., aka PORK

 

In 2014, the Separatists of Donetsk/Luhansk were beaten back by the well-armed AZOV battalion. 

Some of the Separatists were surrounded in a multi-story building in Odessa

The AZOV battalion set the building on fire, no one was allowed out, everyone died

More than 30 people were killed in violent and chaotic clashes in Odessa on Friday as AZOV lovelies stormed a building defended by anti-Kiev separatists, who are in favor of closer ties with Russia.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Mariupol_(2014)

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/may/02/ukraine-dead-odessa-b...

 

In 2022, those same AZOV lovelies are fighting in Mariupol

They have no choice, but to fight to the end, and use civilians as shields, and blame civilian deaths on Russia

The more their resistance, the more destruction of Mariupol

Any left-over of AZOV Battalion likely will not be treated as POWs by the Russians.

More than the reality of insufficient electricity on the grid, the primary issue I have is with the government subsidy offered to Tesla for every electric vehicle produced.  Whether you believe in electric cars or not, the DoE sends a check to Tesla to offset the cost of the production of the electric vehicles - your tax dollars wasted and you have no say in it.  The same goes for wind & solar.  Without the likes of Pingree & King voting to continue these subsidies for entities that could not survive without the government handout, we will continue to endure this ridiculous waste of money on expensive electric ideas that will never return on the investment.

Comment by Kenneth Capron on March 20, 2022 at 10:07pm

I don't know. I see some errors in amongst all the info above.

You need to know that there are now substitutes for several of the rare earth elements that china has monopolies on. Neodymium is no longer the magnet of choice.

But you are right that a majority of people will never be able to get EVs. there will never be enough energy to "electrify" everything

The Three Cs Preventing Total State Control
If you were a time-traveling supervillain intent on world domination, how might you change the past in order to seize total control of the present? I'd get rid of the personal automobile, unsupervised cash transactions, and uncontrolled mass communication. If you take away freedom of movement, freedom of commerce, and freedom of speech, then you can keep people isolated, dependent on government welfare, and ignorant of any ideas that might threaten the power of the State. Cars, cash, and communication are tools for promoting and protecting freedom, so if your goal is total State control over the individual, the three big Cs must go.
And now the "green police" want to replace the affordability of the internal combustion engine and gasoline pumps with expensive batteries made from Chinese and African rare earth metals (usually mined by slaves) and requiring hour-long recharges from electrical power stations running on coal energy. What's more likely — that cars are a threat to the planet or that the freedom cars represent is a threat to state control?

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/
