Politicians and activists who want all cars to go electric are guilty of magical thinking. Electric car sales are up 66% this year. President Biden says the future is “electric… and there’s no turning back.” California and New York are banning sales of new gas-powered vehicles. We’re told they’ll help us use less oil. But most of what politicians, activists, and electric car sellers say about electric cars is just wrong. Activists and politicians love electric cars so much so that they want to take away your other choices. But their green dream is just a fantasy. Electric cars are cool. But when it comes to the environment, electric cars aren’t even close to what activists and politicians promise.
