Kick us in the rear end if you’ve heard us say this before, but cars are much, much cleaner than ever. So why are the climate change fanatics trying to force us to buy EVs?
Here is a 2013 analysis conducted by the Obama EPA of emissions from cars and trucks.
- Compared to 1970 vehicle models, new cars, SUVs and pickup trucks are roughly 99 percent cleaner for common pollutants (hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and particle emissions), while Annual Vehicle Miles Traveled has dramatically increased.
- New heavy-duty trucks and buses are roughly 99 percent cleaner than 1970 models.
