A 2019 watchdog report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration showed the electric vehicle tax credit is rife with fraud and abuse, and electric vehicle incentives disproportionately benefit the wealthy.
To add insult to injury, a recent report by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Scientific Advisory Board refutes the common perception that electric vehicles are good for the environment.
Steve Milloy: "None of what the Joe Biden green team has in store will improve the environment; it will only make your life poorer and harder."
"A green push is a political agenda. It’s not about controlling the climate. It’s about controlling you. You can see this for yourself in the prescriptive lifestyle climate activists demand: Don’t eat meat. You don’t need a car. Avoid air conditioning. Wash in cold water. Dry your clothes on a clothesline. As Al Gore asked at the end of his 2007 movie, “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Are you ready to change the way you live?” While you’re changing the way you live, China, India, and soon Africa will be emitting greenhouse gases like there’s no tomorrow to raise their national standards of living."
"A Biden administration would move to ban fracking, the oil production technology that has liberated Americans and our gas prices from the shackles of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, cartel. In no time, American drivers would be facing European-style gas prices and sweating every time Iran, Russia, or Saudi Arabia moved to threaten the global oil supply."
The New York Times recently ran an opinion column commanding readers to “Stop Using Toilet Paper.” It advocated for using something reusable or upgrading your toilet so it shoots streams of targeted water. It seems nothing environmental extremists do can be too intrusive.
Gore on what is needed to meet UN emission goals: "The annual reductions would be significant, on the order of what we've seen with the pandemic. And yes, that does seem daunting. However, we do have the opportunity to make some fairly dramatic changes."
Gore praises governments banning car engines: "There are some 45 jurisdictions around the world -- national, regional and municipal -- where laws have been passed beginning a phaseout of internal combustion engines. Even India said that by 2030, less than 10 years from now, it will be illegal to sell any new internal combustion engines in India. There are many other examples."
