Do You Remember?
Note that the judge in this story who ruled that Georgia’s voting machines could have compromised integrity and not be counting votes accurately pointed out that the evidence “does not suggest that the Plaintiffs are conspiracy theorists of any variety,” and that, “Indeed, some of the nation’s leading cybersecurity experts and computer scientists have provided testimony and affidavits on behalf of Plaintiffs’ case in the long course of this litigation.” Also note that she’s an Obama appointee.
Green Energy: “I Told You So”
Remember how “green energy” was going to be the future, and we were going to ban fossil fuels and run a 21st century economy on windmills and sunbeams? Well, the makers of those technologies are losing their shirts and trying desperately to get out of their contracts. Here’s the latest…
Perhaps the people most panicked at having been deceived are the auto industry CEOs who actually thought that Joe Biden — a man best known for having been wrong on every foreign policy issue of the past half century — had suddenly developed, at age 78, the ability to predict the future of automotive technology. So they spent billions of dollars building electric cars, only to discover that they’re selling like arsenic sundaes. Turns out car buyers aren’t as easily fooled as car makers.
One after another, CEOs of top automakers are frantically slashing plans to build more EVs and scurrying back to internal combustion engines and hybrids, as EVs pile up on car lots and cost the makers as much as $60,000 for every one sold, while the former CEO of Toyota chuckles, “I told you so.” Meanwhile, with makers slashing prices, experts are warning of a likely crash in EV resale values. I wouldn’t be surprised if by this time next year, they were giving them away with every box of Crackerjacks.
The “Sudden Shift” in the EV Market is Not a Shift
I find it hilarious that this is being reported as a surprise “sudden shift” in the EV market. It’s not a shift. I’ve been saying for years that the market for EVs is trendy green liberals who don’t drive very much and like to virtue signal to their neighbors and people with a lot of disposable income who have to buy every new tech gadget. Sales are falling because that IS the EV market, and they’ve all bought EVs already. Even a lot of them are starting to get rid of them, often at a steep loss over what they paid only a year or two ago.
Nobody who needs reliable transportation that can haul and tow heavy loads and travel long distances without hunting for working chargers and waiting hours for a recharge is going to buy an EV. And the market for large electric trucks is predictably turning out to be mostly nonexistent. An EV is a terrible choice for everything you’d actually need a large truck for.
Here are a few of many YouTube videos about the EV implosion, but this one is from our favorite mechanic Scotty Kilmer, so it’s honest, blunt and hilarious.
And from Australia, here’s fellow hilarious auto expert John Cadogan warning of two hybrids with a hidden defect that can kill you two ways. Worth watching just for the video of the explosion that almost puts the roof of one of them into orbit.
I remember when Democrats mocked Richard Nixon by asking, “Would you buy a used car from this man?” We should start saying of Joe Biden, “Would you buy an electric car from this man?”
