IT’S JUST MY OPINION:
BIDEN’S ELECTRIC CAR SPEECH
We are going “all electric,” according to the president of the United States of America.
Note to Biden and all the liberal communist democrats; the new electric cars have a 200-mile range, on average, with the a/c turned off.
A typical electric car with a 60kWh battery, takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full at a 7kW charging point, if you are lucky enough to be near one. Most drivers top off their charge rather than waiting for their battery to recharge from empty-to-full. For many electric cars, you can add up to 100 miles of range in 35 minutes of charging with a 50kW rapid charger. (Provided that you can find one alongside the road when your battery runs down – Oops!) And when you do find a charging station, won’t you enjoy waiting in line for your turn.
Biden stated that all government vehicles will be replaced with new electric ones that will have a maximum 200 mile range, as compared with a gas vehicle that has a maximum 500 mile range. This may not work out well for the heart attack victim when the emergency ambulance runs out of a charge. However, it may be great for criminals being chased by the US Marshals or ICE whose vehicle happens to need a charge first.
When you go visit family that live over 200 miles away you will need to plan on stopping at a charging station for around 8 hours, or continually stopping along the way to charge up. (Just how readily available will these charging stations be?)
Are you aware that 90 percent of the electricity in the US is powered by fossil fuel? Weather conditions don’t affect fueling gasoline powered vehicles. But, it might be hard to charge your electric battery when its cloudy and or rainy because the source of our electricity will only exist depending on solar cells or windmills instead of fossil fuel.
In the meantime, gas will become so expensive that all recreational vehicles and luxury boating will cease. As a result, boat and motorhome manufacturing will stop, while millions of jobs will be lost forever. And as gas continues to rise, most of the middle class will resort to public transportation, (and who knows what that will cost the individual)!
Just in case you imagine that you might bring along a spare battery, forget that. The battery is built into the car and weighs hundreds of pounds. This is not your cell phone or power drill.
Here’s another little eye opener: In Dec 10, 2012, the federal government owned or leased 254,059 vehicles. Now, that’s over 8 years ago, plus that’s excluding the military and Postal Service vehicles. If they could buy them for $30,000 each, on average, it would cost the taxpayers $7,621,770,000. Also, trillions of dollars would be spent on charging stations.
Our trucking and train shipping industries will be devastated and will need to be bailed out and or taken over by the government. (Hmm!) They simply will not be able to afford the fuel for the trucks, planes trains and ships. Leading to severe food and goods shortages.
As of February, 2020, about 63% of this electricity generation was from fossil fuels—coal, natural gas, petroleum, and other gases. About 20% was from nuclear energy, and about 18% was from renewable energy sources. As you can see, right now, most of our energy generated is from fossil fuel. Trying to go all electric will take decades and it is not realistic to charge into this conversion.
Most low and middle income Americans will not be able to afford the new electric cars. Additionally, most small business owners, building contractors, electricians, plumbers, cleaning companies, and garbage collection companies, will not be able to buy the new electric trucks and will go out of business.
Just this one endeavor of going to all electric will force the government to do just what they want to do, which is to nationalize and take control of everything in America. All American people will become property and a worker/slave to the communist government of America.
