Progressives are putting a lot of their Green New Deal chips on the growth of electric vehicles. California is their lodestar, since it has 42 percent of all electric cars in the U.S. Last year, the state even mandated an end to sales of gas-powered cars by 2035. If anyone dares to sell one after that, it’s a $20,000 fine.
But where do you charge them? In order to have only all zero-emission vehicle sales in 12 years, more than one million new charging stations will have to be installed. The state currently has only 87,000.
Mariel Garza an Editorialist at The left-wing Los Angeles Times, writes: “I’m Ready To Trade In My Electric Car.”
“I could fill up a book recounting the many frustrating and absurd experiences I have had charging my car over the last three years and three months — and I haven’t even hit 23,000 miles on the car yet.”
Just wait until everybody has an electric car. We will be longing for the days of gasoline lines.
