We hear again and again from Sleepy Joe and all of the village idiots in his administration that we need to “transition” away from using fossil fuels. But, what are we supposed to transition to cognitively challenged Joe?
Wind, solar, and nuclear energy only produces about 20% of the energy we need. Which means fossil fuels account for 80% of the energy we currently use in this country.
There are currently 276 million vehicles on the road in the USA. Of those 276 million, only 2.5 million are all electric or hybrid electric vehicles.., that less than 1%! And remember, there are NO electric semi-trucks to transport everything in this country.
And where do electric vehicles get there energy from to charge their batteries? At least 80% of that energy comes from fossil fuels! So, EVs are not necessarily the answer either.
Your Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on the transition to “domestic clean energy production” by the Biden administration, which launched an initiative to ensure 50% of all auto sales are electric vehicles by 2030.”
The topic soon turned to gas prices, which reached record levels in June. House Republicans questioned Buttigieg on how Americans struggling to pay $5 per gallon for gas could afford to purchase an electric vehicle.
Buttigieg then reiterated that the “pain” at the pump could be offset by using an electric vehicle, and that this “pain” was necessary to speed up the transition away from fossil fuels.
“The more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, the more benefit there is for those who can access an electric vehicle,” Buttigieg said.
“So you’re saying the more pain we have, the more benefit we’re gonna get?” Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., asked. “I think that’s what I heard you say.”
Buttigieg emphasized, “Of course – no, no, that’s what you heard me say. I know you want me to say it so bad but honestly, sir, what we’re saying is we could have no pain at all by making EVs cheaper for everyone.”
No, Mayor Pete, I’m pretty sure Rep. Gimenez heard you correctly, as did I.
And either way, your misinformation campaign is quite alarming.
Then, recently, Biden’s ever competent, White House National Head Climate Advisor, Gina McCarthy, said on CNN, “Just because Congress couldn’t get it done (referring to climate change/Green New (Raw) Deal, he’s (“President” Biden) going to move forward with every power available to him (and then some, I imagine) to make the change in the shift to clean energy.”
That’s all well and good Ms. Climate Advisor, except for the fact that clean energy is not readily available in the usable amounts we need, and probably won’t be for decades. In the meantime, people and our economy still need to function in the real world…, not your imaginary dream world.
Hopefully, most of this foolishness will come to a screeching halt after the 2022 mid-term elections, and then return to some form of normalcy and common sense in 2025…, if we can last that long!
