Every time there’s what is styled an “energy crisis” – the term in air fingers quotes to reflect the fact that the “crisis” is never about “energy” but rather about government, which makes energy harder to produce and more expensive to deliver via various edicts and fatwas – such as cancelling pipelines, for instance – the government makes transportation more expensive.
For instance, this Let Them Drive Teslas business, articulated by the Biden Thing’s equivalent of Marie Antoinette, Pete Buttigieg. This queen suggests that people being impoverished by the artificially induced spike in the cost of energy in the form of gasoline further impoverish themselves by – somehow – buying an electric car that costs twice as much as a current non-electric economy car.
Doesn’t everyone own a $50,000 Tesla – or a $35,000 Chevy Bolt?
Of course, no one would have to worry about the cost of energy – gas or electricity – were it not for the government and people like the Biden Thing and the Buttigieg thing.
Had the former not autocratically winnowed the supply of oil by cancelling a pipeline that – by now – would have been capable of bringing some 800,000 barrels of it per day to the United States from Canada – and encouraged rather than discouraged the production of oil here, in America – the cost of energy in the form of gasoline would probably still be closer to $2 per gallon that $5 per gallon. Even factoring in the cost of “inflation,” the sneak-term used by creatures such as the Biden Thing to get people to not think about the malicious devaluation of their money via the printing of more money.
But if the energy had been allowed to flow, there would be no “energy crisis” – and that would make it a lot harder to rouse the public’s anger toward Putin Bad! (and Ukraine good!) and thereby shift the public’s attention away from the actual source of their energy woes.
And other woes, too.
These to include woes about the other form of energy which will soon be in crisis – if the Marie Antoinette Solution were ever to be adopted as the solution to the “energy crisis” conjured into existence to justify it.
Because – wait for it – electric cars use electricity. They do not have a wind-up key on the roof to make them go. They have to be plugged in, in order for them to be able to go. That plug connects – ultimately – to a power source and it’s not likely to be a free one.
The Biden and Buttigieg things either know this – and don’t care – or they don’t know it and are callously incompetent. They are trying to increase the demand for another form of energy – that would be electricity – which is already scarce because of existing demand for it – and make it scarcer, by artificially increasing demand for it. This will, of course, make electricity more expensive – on top of the expense imposed by the electric car, itself.
As with the pipeline cancelled and production (of oil, here) discouraged, these things have cancelled and discouraged the means by which the electrical energy which will be needed in an electrified future could have been produced in quantity sufficient to reduce the cost of it. Utility plants closed – and in many cases, the generating equipment sold for pennies on the dollar to the Chinese, so that they don’t have to worry about their energy ever being in crisis. No permits issued for new nuclear generating capacity, which actually has the capacity to produce the terawatts of electricity needed – and “cleanly,” since nothing is burned and so nothing is “emitted.”
There is also this business of the things eliminating – by regulations, rather than laws- the kinds of vehicles that would dramatically palliate the artificially created “energy crisis” by making transportation more rather than less affordable. There are brand-new electric cars available for less than $10,000 . . . in China. Where it is also possible to buy non-electric cars (and trucks) for less than $10,000.
There also are – or rather, were – a number of diesel-powered small cars and wagons you used to be able to buy for about $23,00 (about half the price of a Tesla3) that used so little energy (50-plus MPG) that people could both afford to buy and drive them, even when the cost of energy was made artificially high.
I have written about this at length in the past so I will only write here – briefly – that the reason we’re not allowed to have such vehicles has nothing to do with either “safety” or “emissions” – the two false-flag reasons invariably given as justification for not allowing low-cost/light-weight and highly economical to drive and buy vehicles.
Rather, it is done to foment – and worsen – the serial “crises” which serve to energize creatures such as the Biden and Buttigieg things. In the manner of a tick being energized by the blood it sucks from the flesh of the healthy animal it attaches itself to.
