President Biden promised 500,000 E.V. charging stations to help us all migrate to battery-operated vehicles with the promise of maintaining our traveling and commuting lifestyle across the length and breadth of our country. The promise of these for the price of a mere $7.5 billion, has borne the fruit, so far, of one -- one -- charging station. That it's in the middle of nowhere and no one is using it shouldn't be surprising. No one wants these things, so no one is really building them. This one, essentially a $7.5 billion charging station, was obsolete before the CO2 off-gassing of its curing concrete had completed. It’s almost as though Biden doesn’t believe this stuff, either…
As long as our government is mandating battery cars, however, one would think that a hospitality company would get in on the plot. Put up a Holiday Inn Express and a Denny's every 100 miles of the interstate system, subsidized by the taxpayer dime, along with a number of charging stations equal to rooms. It can take six hours to put another 400 miles into a battery operated car (which takes under ten minutes for a real car), so why not have a bite and an overnight while you’re waiting? Get the "infrastructure" bill to subsidize those motel rooms (and local housing for the hospitality workers) and you get an even larger grift on the middle-class taxpayer the globalists are trying to eliminate, so why not? A win-win for the private jet set, a lose-lose for humanity, nature, and our intertwined future.
If you've traveled Old Route 66 through the American Southwest, where it's not been displaced or paved-over by Interstate-40, you’ve seen abandoned every 100 miles or so in the high desert a service station (gasoline, mechanic, eatery; often a small motel) established by some long-gone American Dreamer, made obsolete by cars with a longer range. The “green” push for non-usable transportation and the infrastructure to support it will have the same result. In less than a decade or two, these taxpayer-funded charging stations will be abandoned, derelict and falling apart. If, once again, they ever are built.
Of course, economics will win in the end. And every taxpayer dollar spent on the Green Monster between now and then will be found in the rusting steel and abandoned infrastructure visually polluting the country: derelict charging stations housing only rats and barn owls, solar farms destroying vast swaths of desert and plains and killing millions of local flora and fauna, clear-cut forests laying waste to natural beauty for the idiocy of broken 14th-century windmills while annihilating tens of thousands of "protected" migratory birds and bats who have used these pathways in their skies for millions of years.
The entire environmentalist project is nothing but attack on civilization and freedom. It's boondoggle wrapped in a farce and built on the lie of "global warming." And it seems that it won't stop until we stop it.
