Mayor Pete Says EV Forced Adoption Needs To Happen Quicker

The reporter who interviewed Mayor Pete missed a big opportunity to ask why Pete, Kamala, and Joe, and so many other Biden appointees aren’t using them right now themselves

California gas car ban ‘interesting,’ EV adoption must happen ‘quickly’ to beat climate change says Buttigieg

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg on Thursday appeared to heap praise on states’ efforts to fight climate change – particularly California’s gas car ban – which go well beyond policies set at the federal level.

In an interview with FOX 11’s “The Issue Is” that aired Friday, Buttigieg was asked to comment on California’s plan to ban new gas cars by the year 2035 in favor of electric vehicles and whether that could be a national model. The ban was passed just days before the state began struggling with keeping the lights on during a late summer heatwave.

Buttigieg evaded answering directly whether the Biden administration would implement a similar policy, but said it was “interesting” that some states “were trying to go above and beyond what we’re doing at the federal level.”

“I’m really interested (in following) these developments, while we continue to set a national policy that’s the baseline for all of this. We need to move in the direction of electric vehicles,” Buttigieg said before acknowledging that some major industries are already moving in this direction independently.

“But we’ve got to make sure that this happens quickly enough to help us beat climate change. We’ve got to make sure it happens affordably enough that’s it not just wealthy people, but (also) low-income people who most need those gas savings if they can afford the EV’s in the first place,” Buttigieg said.

He was a little short on details on how low income folks are going to be able to afford the EVs, as well as have chargers at their government housing (so many of which are cesspools of crime). Plus, the higher cost of insurance and repairs. And where all the power is going to come from. And what happens when the cost of electricity skyrockets.

Also, why is this his business? If people want them, they’ll advocate for them. Not have government force them.

      Maywhore Pedo needs to shut his pie hole. Why does the media feed this Hyena?

      Once they force everyone into EV’s you can bet the cost of electricity will skyrocket. That is the plan. When everyone can no longer store gas at home. It is easy to keep you there…
