Let’s analyze some of the facts surrounding electric cars versus fossil fuels because the truth will shock you.

Teslas are cool and it's more American than a lot of the other cars on the market.
Joe Biden and many other Democrats want the future to be all EVs. Several states have even mandated this on top of Biden’s draconian and illogical infrastructure plan, which does not include much infrastructure.
The left says we will die unless we do all that. But is that true? Will Evs save all of humanity?
The biggest difference between EVs and other cars is the battery. Lithium, Cobalt, Nickel, graphite, and manganese make up these “eco-friendly” batteries.
The processes involved in extracting lithium and cobalt require substantial energy, contributing to air and water pollution, land degradation, and the risk of groundwater contamination. One ton of lithium production is estimated to necessitate 2.2 million liters of water.
"A lot of lithium comes from remote deserts with no water, from a failed State controlled by radical Warlords who are rumored in some instances to also be transphobic,” Crowder said.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) holds over half of the world's cobalt resources, and more than 70% of global cobalt mining occurs in this region. Small-scale mining in the DRC involves at least 40,000 children, with some as young as six years old.
Tesla sources battery materials from Glencore, a mining company with a track record of alleged human rights abuses. China also leads in EV battery production.
"[China] employs slave labor and [has a] total disregard for basic human rights. Their domination of these mineral markets is a big problem for a place like the United States," Crowder said.
Nothing about EV production is controlled by the free market.
"China has made it pretty much impossible to do so," Crowder said. "They can make it impossible for other countries to enter the market. Considering all this, it's not a surprise that China is moving to increase the sale of cheap electric vehicles in the United States of America. This presents what you might know as the Goldilocks problem that the United States has when it comes to electric vehicles."
