Either way, it is counter to what the morons on the left believe it to be. They rail against fossil fuels and nuclear for the generation of electricity, and then celebrate vehicles that run on electricity thinking that the electricity they are using is magically produced by those often broken down windmills. What is truly fun is to explain to a left wing environmentalist, how the electricity to run their car is actually produced. You can see the excitement for their vehicle go away almost immediately once they realize that they really have done nothing but spend a bunch of money on a fantasy. It is glorious.

Yup. All you have to do is ignore the emissions from the coal plant and you come out ahead.

Originally I thought electric vehicles were stupid. Then I learned the drive parameters can be set up to make a vehicle faster than any internal combustion engine. Now I think they're cool.

However, once the left destroys our ability to generate electric power how are electric vehicles going to be recharged? Without coal and oil and natural gas there will not be enough electric power to charge our cell phones. Wind and solar are not capable of supplying our current needs.

I have no problem with the concept of EV's, I too think there are some great benefits to them. However, with the sorry state of our power grid and the push to alternative sources of power generation by the left, we had better get used to walking were we want to go. Not too bad if you live close to where you need to go, but quite a haul when you live out in farm country where I do.
