Steve Forbes: The Expensive And Harmful Truth About Electric Vehicles

The CEO of Toyota was skewered recently when he expressed serious criticism about the auto industry’s headlong rush into electric vehicles (EVs) by saying, “We shouldn’t limit ourselves to just one option.” This segment of What’s Ahead explains why he’s right.

Contrary to vociferous assertions, EVs are no friends of the environment. A typical 1,000-pound EV battery, for instance, entails the mining and processing of 500,000 pounds of earth. Renewables require monstrous amounts of new mining.

Cold weather severely curtails or even eliminates EV battery performance. The increased electricity to charge all these vehicles will seriously stress an already shaky electrical grid. Moreover, an inconvenient truth is that most people don’t want EVs.

Electric vehicles are part of the future, but they are manifestly not the future.
Would you be willing to fight and die for multiculturalism?  Would you put your life on the line for “Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity” (DIE); “Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance” (ESG); or other Marxist worldviews?  Would you go to war to preserve the right of delusional men to use women’s restrooms and dominate women’s sports?  Would you fight for any government that hunts down and imprisons J6 protesters as political hostages but celebrates Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters who cause physical injury and property damage?
