Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Democrats running Sacramento are not only economic illiterates, users of junk science, now they are promoting the end of the gas driven car by 2040 in California. They want all electric vehicles on the road. Too bad they did not do want a High School freshman would do, research the cost of the project in use of resources. This is all you need to know why this is a sophomoric effort to kill the California economy.
“California has fewer cars than the United Kingdom, about 25.6 million compared to 38.2 million, says Junk Science’s Steve Milloy. Using those figures, he says “replacing gasoline-powered cars with EVs in California would then require:”
- 134% of current global cobalt production
- 67% of current global neodymium production
- 50% of current global production of lithium
- And 34% of current global production of copper”
Anybody got a common sense in Sacramento, or the media promoting the end of the California economy? Doesn’t matter to the brains in Sacto, they just want to say they did it. Pass this on, folks need to know the results of the immature political hacks wanting votes on the backs of the families still here.
