Are They Coming for Your Cars? (The Drew Mariani Show)

Will you be forced to get an electric vehicle at some point? Unpredictability and unreliability seem to be the key words attached to any EV, which leaves you unconvinced about the potential successes of EV. You may be holding on to your gas vehicle for dear life!

🚗💥 In a recent podcast of The Drew Mariani Show, Drew and Dr. H. Sterling Burnett embarked on a riveting journey to unravel the complexities and drawbacks of electric vehicles (EVs). Here’s a summarized scoop that’s sure to electrify your curiosity:

  1. The Big EV Hesitation: Drew opened the show discussing the reluctance of many towards the Biden administration’s push for EVs. Despite the government’s heavy financial backing, including a whopping $7.5 billion for charging stations, consumer adoption remains tepid.
  2. Automotive Giants Pumping the Brakes: Drew highlighted major auto players like Ford, GM, and Volkswagen scaling back or canceling their EV plans. This move signals a significant lack of confidence in the EV market.
  3. The Taxpayer-Funded Carrot: Drew pointed out that EV sales, despite hitting a million this year, are largely fueled by taxpayer-funded rebates and incentives. Yet, even with these sweet deals, the average customer remains unswayed.
  4. Range Anxiety and Charging Conundrums: A major consumer concern Drew raised is the practicality of EVs: How far can they go, and where do you charge them? The lack of progress in building promised charging stations further fuels this anxiety.
  5. Guest Expert Dr. H. Sterling Burnett Weighs In: Dr. Burnett, a climate and environmental policy expert, joined the show, labeling the EV push as a “boondoggle” and a “scam.” He drew parallels to past automotive failures and expressed concerns over EV-related fires and other safety issues.
  6. A Numbers Game: Dr. Burnett presented staggering statistics: EVs represent a minuscule portion of annual vehicle sales and yet require a disproportionately high number of charging stations compared to gas stations.
  7. The Charging Station Fiasco: With the Biden administration’s promise of 1.2 million chargers to meet a fraction of the demand, Dr. Burnett underscored the impracticality and inefficiency of EV charging, especially considering the existing infrastructure.
  8. Economic and Environmental Quandaries: The show touched on the economic implications of EVs, including the burden on taxpayers and the lack of market-driven demand. Environmental concerns related to battery production and disposal were also discussed.
  9. A Future Still in Flux: While acknowledging the potential for future improvements in EV technology, Drew and Dr. Burnett emphasized the market’s natural inclination to provide what consumers genuinely want, underscoring the forced nature of the current EV push. 🌍🔋🔥
