As we all know, oil is a commodity that won’t be around forever. Eventually, we will run out. No one is arguing against that particular fact.
However, there are and have been numerous alternatives to refined oil. Some successful, some not so much.
From biodiesels (corn oil, peanut oil, used cooking oil from fast food restaurants, etc.) to synthetic oil made from coal (20 percent of the German military ran on coal oil wood-smoke oil during the closing months of WWII) to even wood-smoke powered cars (video below).
But here’s the point I’m getting at – is there a place for electric powered cars? Of course, there is.
I, for one, am wholeheartedly in favor of letting the research scientists do their thing. Oil companies such as ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell, BP, etc., all see the writing on the wall.
So do auto manufacturers from Seoul to Stockholm and all points in between.
While I’ll readily admit I don’t have the chops to make automobile fuel from things such as waste grease from the local burger joint, I do know that at its current technology, EVs perpetuate child slavery and a coming environmental disaster that the political Left certainly hasn’t thought through yet.
I don’t know about you, but I do feel a pang of guilt whenever I throw-out a couple of used-up AA batteries. Thank God I’ll never fret over how will I dispose of a 500-pound EV battery.
Sadly, we’re seeing governments (both state and federal) mandating private citizens to privately purchase EVs at the present state of technology.
That’s textbook definition of economic fascism – government and industry hand-in-hand ordering the people to comply… or else.
Nevertheless, instead of a smooth transition away from oil, Team Biden and the rest of his ilk are forcing us to be complicit partners in the modern slave trade.
To hell with the XIII Amendment. Slavery is alive and well here in the 21st Century, and the Biden government obviously doesn’t have much of a problem with that. But I do.
When it comes to these governmental mandates, I don’t need the government to protect me from me.
