Al Gore, former Clinton VP and Senator from Tennessee, has made millions of dollars from his hysterical film about global warning called “An Inconvenient Truth.” For that, Gore (undeservedly) won a Nobel Prize. Then again, Obama won a Nobel Prize for Peace then proceeded bombing people. You can’t make this stuff up.

Well, here are 8 inconvenient truths about electric vehicles that Globalist Democrats like Obama, Biden, Gore and Kerry have been hawking like carnival barkers.

  1. EVs are more expensive
  2. EVs are inconvenient for anyone who needs a public charger
  3. EVs are inconvenient for anyone who drives long distances
  4. Insurance costs are higher
  5. Maintenance costs are higher
  6. Repairs take longer and parts are in short supply
  7. Minor accidents can be very costly requiring a new battery
  8. Consumers don’t want the damn things and rightfully so

Then we find out that Ford loses $36,000 on each EV, and announced cuts in production of the Electric F-150 pickup trucks. Only government would try to force car manufacturers into producing a product that loses so much money per unit.

The price of a Ford F-150 Lightning starts at about $50,000 and is eligible for $7,500 in federal EV tax credits. Even with the tax credits, the price remains higher than the $34,000 base price of the gas-powered truck.

As a result, 3,900 auto dealers wrote a letter to President Biden, warning:

“Electric vehicles are stacking up on our lots which is our best indicator of customer demand in the marketplace.”  

Plus, high auto loan rates and vehicle prices add to affordability concerns. Folks don’t want $1,000 payments for vehicles that come with “range anxiety.” Not to mention BATTERY anxiety.

$2 billion in subsidies, only 2 EV stations opened, the holdup is social justice. The FHWA issued a rule requiring that workers for most projects be certified by the electricians union, or another government-approved training program. States have also blasted the program for its lack of flexibility. Florida’s Transportation Department said projects were stifled by guidance that stations be 50 miles apart. Pennsylvania lamented restrictions on building stations with fewer than four charging ports. Half of the grant money is set aside for “disadvantaged communities that are marginalized by underinvestment,” which by the agency’s description includes Alaskan and Arizonan Indian tribes and urban parks and libraries.

Speaking of charging stations (or the lack thereof), there was the fiasco with EVs in Chicago with the polar vortez. While Tesla is the highest profile EV manufacturer, other EVs and hybrids were turned into frozen bricks when the electric batteries froze/degraded in the cold.

Then we have Hertz selling 20,000 EVs due to lack of customer demand.

Remember, Obama and his aging, demented sock puppet Joe Biden are profoundly pro-union and pro-idiotic woke policies. The EV push is mading made by the World Economic Formum who don’t even want you to own your own car and take mass transit (electric no doubt).

Why is the US government funding the anti-US WEF?? Why was SecState Antony Blinken attending the WEF in Davos where his plane broke down in the cold??

Confession: I own a hybrid car that had trouble starting due to the cold. Not to mention that the windshield wiper motor burned out while trying to wipe away the dusting of snow on the windshield. BUT it does have great acceleration!

And the scariest thing about EVs is that Biden apppointed a small town Mayor from South Bend Indiana to be Secretary of Transportation. Pete Buttigieg. Here is Mayor Pete in Ukraine visiting with Zelenskyy. WHY is our Transportation Secretarty in Ukraine?? Bagman for Biden’s Boodle??

Auto sales, mostly internal combustion engines (ICEs) are still growing. Just not EVs.
