I rise to take exception to Mr. Ayers’ article of Saturday last. While purporting to aggrandize the “EV revolution,” no one of ordinary intelligence can escape the notion Mr. Ayers real thesis is all things D are wonderful and all things R are evil.
I am very supportive of good jobs being created locally and throughout Tennessee. Locally we finally have in place the people and policies to foster present and future growth. I am fortunate in that most of the people involved are friends and I support them completely. But I digress.
I think the Ds headlong rush into battery powered automobiles is the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people! They fail to inform us that a battery is a bucket! It generates no electricity. It is simply a $12,000- $20,000 “gas tank” with a finite lifetime. It is completely analogous to a $50 normal gas tank with an infinite life.
Well known is the fact our present electric grid is marginal in meeting demand during the summer months. This electric grid which will “fill up” the vehicle battery with fuel (electricity) generated 80% by fossil fuel plants, yet EVs are to replace the use of fossil fuels, re the Ds. I have never heard from the Ds an estimate of how many fossil fuel generating plants will have to be built to prop-up the present grid to support EVs.
The Ds are great at applying convoluted and near insane logic to solving problems. A couple of examples: if we outlaw law abiding citizens from owning guns, then criminals will automatically forego the use of guns. How about if we want drunk drivers to stop killing sober drivers we outlaw sober drivers? Such is the intellectual dishonesty of the Ds. Also their self-designated superior intellect denotes no ancillary trait of creativity else they would, applying their logic, outlaw cancer and poverty. Remember the Ds are the folks who don’t know the difference between a man and a woman but want you to believe they can define and fix the problems with the Earth’s climate!
There is a fuel on the near horizon that will be the fuel of the future, but, that is for another day.
