Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Clay asks: Have you seen this Zero Hedge article this morning? The study director Christoph Buchal will be knocked off soon.
My reply: I have – and I fault the author for not questioning the “save the world” premise behind the EV putsch. Which depends on acceptance of the idiotic idea that carbon dioxide is an “emission,” as that term has been understood.
Of course EVs “emit” more C02 than IC cars. This is because they are almost all high-performance/luxury cars that happen to be electrically propelled, which requires the E equivalent of a high-horsepower engine… which is a high-capacity battery and high-performance motor. These use more power – just like a high-performance IC engine – which takes more energy – with the difference being the EV’s power generation is sourced somewhere else.
But the “emissions” of carbon dioxide are “emitted” regardless, just not at the tailpipe.
Which would mean they are just as “dangerous” if “emitted” at the tailpipe, in terms of “climate change,” if “climate change” weren’t a shoddily concocted hoax designed to frighten the ignorant into accepting energy austerity.
But it is a shoddy hoax.
The “climate” is and always has been constantly “changing,” because the biosphere is a phenomenally complex system affected by myriad factors, of which C02 concentrations in the atmosphere is but one factor. And the amount of C02 generated by human industrial activity has never been shown to be the source of the minor warming trend which has been hystericized into an imminent planetary catastrophe.
EVs are just a stalking horse – presented as the solution to a problem which does not exist – in order to justify energy austerity, control of mobility.
Once EVs are used to eliminate IC cars, EVs will be eliminated in their turn. Because the true agenda has never been “the environment.” That has served as the window dressing. What’s behind the window dressing is a regime in which most people no longer control their mobility but rather are controlled by the people pushing this agenda – who will not have their mobility curtailed, for the sake of the “environment” or any other reason.
