Silly me, I thought the worst news about cars would be Ric Ocasek passing away.
Seriously, Andrew Yang. You’re breaking my heart. I thought you and I could be boys. Sit back. Crack a beer. Enjoy the debut of AEW on TNT: Dynamite next month. Instead, I find out it’s not enough you want to take away my meat. But you’re coming for my car too.
Well I mentioned before that we might not own our own cars. Our current car ownership and usage model is really inefficient and bad for the environment.
You guys all probably agree with this because you’re quite young.
What’s sad is that I think this new round of climate extremism stems from AOC’s Green New Deal. Which, spoiler, has been exposed for what it really is: crap. Everyone who is running for president is trying to pander to those who believe in it. Except for maybe Joe Biden, who is lucky to remember his pants.
Also, cars don’t just provide mobility. Cars provide independence, that is the ability to come and go when and where you please, no questions asked, no permission requested. Americans are an independent lot, up to and including the weepy damsels of the liberal persuasion. Like with the meat, good luck taking people’s rides.
Secondly, electric cars. You have to plug those suckers in. Which means they need to get their power from somewhere. Who here knows where a great deal of electricity comes from? No, not on the recycled dreams of college rejects. COAL! Check out Study Shows Electric Cars Produce More Carbon than Diesel Cars and WATCH: Why Electric Cars are Stupid, and NOT ‘Green’ At All.
Exit question: If you’re the Trump campaign, do you at this point make one of the three presidential debates strictly climate change related? Because I can’t imagine voters in PA, WI, and MI will be on board with the leftist agenda we’ve been seeing. Which is now the mainstream Democrat agenda.
