Rowan Atkinson is being accused of damaging EV sales over an Op-Ed he wrote last summer. Yes, the "Mr. Bean" actor.
Electric vehicle sales have stalled in the UK, and there is one man to blame for it. Rowan Atkinson. Yes, the Mr. Bean actor. He wrote an Op-Ed last summer that was so subversive that he is the leading cause for people not wanting to buy electric vehicles.
This is according to the Thinktank Green Alliance, which addressed the House of Lords as to why they may not hit their target of eliminating fossil fuels by 2035. They point to an Op-Ed written by the actor in June 2023 as being a lead culprit.
The pressure group told peers in a letter that was shared: "One of the most damaging articles was a comment piece written by Rowan Atkinson in The Guardian which has been roundly debunked.
"Unfortunately, fact checks never reach the same breadth of audience as the original false claim, emphasising the need to ensure high editorial standards around the net zero transition."
Other challenges included not enough charging ports, the higher prices on EVs, and, quote, "a lack of clear and consistent messaging from the government."
I would offer a few other examples of why:
- "We love you oil, yes we do": Watch as this eco-clown protest is no match for a drunken bachelor party
- Watch: Leggy blonde emerges to save the day, drags eco-lunatics by the hair to stop them blocking traffic
- "You nutters": Bystander goes on must-watch rant on how those climate protesters blocking traffic suck at life
- Hands are for wimps! Watch this left-wing protestor glue his entire head to a priceless work of art
Atkinson, who has a degree in electrical and electronic engineering, wrote a piece for The Guardian: "I love electric vehicles – and was an early adopter. But increasingly I feel duped," where he criticized the ion batteries and suggested that people should hang on to their gas guzzlers for now.
He expressed this in an Op-Ed, where the "Op" stands for "opinion." I'm admittedly not familiar with British culture. Maybe Mr. Bean is as revered as Taylor Swift and can motivate enormous mobs of people with his words. And that this one Op-Ed is what caused EV sales to slow down. As opposed to, like, all the horror stories of people finding out EVs can't do basic car things.
My guess is the Thinktank Green Alliance wants something to be done about those stories too. They still sound ridiculous blaming Mr. Bean for their problems.
Plus, Mr. Bean is right about the batteries.
