Such an informative and classy comment. Let's group millions of people in to one bucket. That might make the poster look smart /s

Idiots with nothing to contribute use phrases like "All liberals ..." or "All conservatives ..."

Frank, this is truly amazing.

Consumers never made the choices. Those choices were dictated by the Big 2 and largely the Big One (GM).

It's not a fallacy to do a parts count on where EV's are headed compared to ICE. Nor is it one to look at the engineers who claim a Model 3 is built for 300K miles (and perhaps more).

A vast number of rooftops in my area have PV on them...and, sure, even making solar cells isn't clean....but compare an average 25MPG ICE vehicle these days with a home-charged EV, in terms of the air pollutants released (let alone national security and other things) and I think the difference will be VAST.

Our species has the special gift of being able to look into the future. But we don't do it often enough. Look at the recent "debates" over incandescent bulbs. Only a caveman wouldn't approve of a 90% savings in energy - and air pollution - using modern technology.

EV's are no different other than it will take a little longer due to the complexity. But remember when LED light bulbs were over $40 each...not too long ago!

If anything we need to give more government subsidies to EV tech (US MADE TECH) because it serves so many purposes...which I don't think need to be spelled out.

Then again, if your preference it to buy EV's and the tech from China, we should keep on doing exactly what we are doing.
So double down on subsidies? No thanks, lets end them all.
Yes consumers and their needs (you know the people that will actually pay for and drive the car?) should drive the market. You all act like EV's are the second coming when they have been around the whole time. Sorry its just a fact that they dont make sense to so many drivers and if it werent for the subsidies, tax breaks and propaganda, the sales would be much less than they are now.
I say the politicians stay out of transportation and energy we might just get a flying car or teleportation.

If I was a gas station owner. I would do everything in my power to push back on a movement that’s basically trying to put me out of business over a hoax. To the life of me I don’t understand why gas station owners haven’t pushed back? Good idea? Bad idea?
Bad idea. You aren't thinking ahead to ALL the consequences of your plan and your political statement. Not only would you lose a lot of customers, you would also lose a lot of your suppliers. So one way or the other you'd end up going out of business anyway.
