Planes, Trains & Automobiles … and Trucks

“The Biden administration has announced in recent weeks new stringent emissions requirements for virtually the entire American transportation system. The Environmental Protection Agency will mandate by the year 2035 that virtually every car made and sold in America must be an EV. No more gas cars. The New York Times comically declared that motorists don’t have to worry because this ‘is not a ban on gasoline-powered vehicles.’ Sure it isn’t. Today less than 2% of cars use the electric power grid for fuel. So soon we will see 50 times more demand for electricity from autos. Then the EPA announced new rules for trains in California to go electric — even as the Association of American Railroads has declared the mandate infeasible. But wait. The climate change lobby is just getting started.” (04/03/24)
